Hi! My name is Ben, and I'm an illustration student who's aspiring to one day be a concept artist. I'm currently trying to decide what Entertainment/Industrial design school to go to after I get my bachelor's in illustration (FZD or TAD?), but for now I just try to get better. By the way, if you have any unbiased advice on the matter (I feel the need to specify seeing as how this forum is actually owned by the art department), I would love to hear it. I need to submit my portfolio somewhere a year from now and I need to be ready for that. Or who knows, I might just keep studying these masters videos posted by CTRLPAint and FZDSchool and see where I am in a year.
I don't really know what in particular to fill this thread with, so I thought I'd start by posting my latest works from my illustration class, and look around for what else I can put here. Maybe I'll just fill this thing with honest to goodness sketches??? It's possible!
Here's something I did last semester that was received pretty well:
It's about energy! Specifically, moving from the bottom up, the evolution of energy. It's pretty straightforward like that.
And here's something I did that is a bit complicated. Here's a hint to understanding whats going on: There's two stories! Can you tell me both of them?
If you can't figure out whats going on, I wrote an analysis of it here that explains what you're looking at. It's a bit complicated. I should probably stop trying to make my illustrations puzzles.
Yeah anyways I'm gonna go scan some stuff and takes some photos and do some studies and live my life hey lets talk later though
