This is a resurrection of the review process detailed in this thread: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59247 and this thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=58831
My goal is entirely undefined. At this current point in my life I'm not even certain that I want visual art to be the main work of my life, however, I am currently in art school and I'm young enough to "just float with it" for a while.
For visual arts, specifically, I'd like to create several pieces of artwork that I find truly powerful and transporting. I don't necessarily want to be a concept designer because I don't enjoy video games and my interest in "design-based" (action) films is fleeting, however it is something that I enjoy. I guess, that said, I really want to be a "fine artist" (despite my major in illustration) but I would like to make money off of my art which seems difficult as a fine artist. I'd also love to create artwork to accompany music, and to fit into the archetype that Rodger Dean and HR Giger have laid out in the past. To my dismay, this also seems to be a less than secure source of income given the current digital themes of the music industry, and seeing as album artwork is becoming less and less significant. I'd also love to be in a book like Spectrum and I'd love to some day have my own gallery show.
[edit: in retrospect this is not the sort of thing I would write to a school or company, but perhaps it is honest than what I would say in such a paragraph?]
None of this artwork is particularly recent, as most of my artwork has been for school (which would not be worth posting) or graphic designs for clients. There is more on my blog.
From OLD to NEW:
(brush and ink)
(Pen/Brush and ink)
(pen/ink, and then photoshop)
And then these three are all pen/ink then photoshop:
