Hi, my name is Andrew Dieterly and I have just graduated from Kutztown University with a BFA (concentrating in drawing). I am currently working in a grocery store bakery to make a living. In my art, my strengths are in drawing and anatomy but I am really trying to improve my color and composition skills.
Where I Would Like to Be->
Ideally, I would like to work as an illustration freelancer, even more ideally making book illustrations, cards, etc. I would gladly accept a regular position in games, film or even design as a 2d or 3d artist, although I'm not as interested in those personally.
I would also like to write and publish my own books but that is something I have pushed in to my personal work rather than professional. I don't want to have to sacrafice anything simply to make sure that the book gets published on time so that I can pay my rent.
Problems That I See Often->
Color is absolutely baffling at times, as well as picking color palettes.
Creating functional compositions is usually a problem. Particularly ones that also have a sense of deeper space in them as opposed to may of the pieces I have below which generally consist of a figure with something that could be replaced by wallpaper in a spacial sense.
Conveying story in an image effectively.
Thank you very much for your help!
