So I’m almost half way through college and should really start looking for opportunities to work in the professional field. I’m sure through my school I can maybe find internships and stuff like that, but I thought I’d ask here for some help. What would be the best way to start doing real work? I wanna do concept art and just freelance so are the small game companies looking for artists out there? I just want to do work so I can really start building up my resume and don’t really know where to start. If anyone can help me I’d really appreciate a message! Thanks!
Here she is. All colored up. Coloring in lineart really isn’t my style, no was the method we were supposed to do. Dealing with layer masks and having shadows and highlights on seperate layers and then having to use texture. But I like the way if came out, its my first real painting in a while that isnt’t a photo study. but yea, i enjoyed this piece! the next project for this class will hopefully be AWESOME. cheers!
WIP of my first project in my Electronic Illustration class. We’re coloring lineart so i took advantage of complete freedom of subject matter and drew a dragon. The technique isn’t really my method of doing things, but I’d be lying if I said I havent already learn a lot in that class. So excited for this quarter. cheers!
Jane the juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex!! It was gonna be a sketch but then I couldn’t stop last night then Just finished the scales on the neck today. Kinda proud of it, but drawing EVERY INDIVIDUAL SCALE is the worst thing ever. I really do hope the pros have some kind of secret I can eventually learn someday. But yea, bout 5-7ish hours I think. I so bad at keeping track. cheers!
Some sketches of Majungasaurus for the sake of uploading new art. Hopefully my two illustration classes this quarter will be awesome, so stayed tuned for more work!
My illustration final. Circus character dudes and dudettes. Colors aren’t the best, but whatevz hopefully it’ll get me an A.
Daspletosaurus torosus portrait done in graphite. like 3x4 inches. I did it in the style of Douglas Henderson’s graphite drawings.
An illustration project I did last week on one of my favorite bands. I worked originally in greyscale so it looks a lot better than the colored version. but yea.
These are some robots I did for an Indesign Project. I gave them cool names and listed fun facts about them and their weapons.
Since the drawings werent the aim of the projected and pretty rushed. not refined in anyway like I usually like to do with my work.
Some prehistoric birds. Microraptor gui, Yanornis martini, and Sulcavis geeorum. Made sure to make them very bird-like and natural instead of little feathered monsters like they(usually Microraptor) are usually depicted. Amazing how much reading All Yesterday’s has influenced my view on paleontography.
First sketches on my toned paper sketchbook! The first is a study of one of C.M. Kosemen’s Troodon paintings. and the second is a fictional ibis-like maniraptoran. I’m liking drawing more with black and white ink than B/W conte/charcoal. enjoy!
Sketches from art history class.
"There was an old man with a flute
A sarpint ran into his boot;
But he played day and night
Till the sarpint took flight
And avoided that man with the flute.”
- Edward Lear limerick
An illustration i did for class based off the limerick. i scanned it all weird so the resolution is killing me and i hope it looks ok on tumblr. pen and ink!
Australopethicus afarensis skull. done with watercolor and a tiny bit of pastels. enjoy! sorry for the misspelling guise. No need to be sassy about it
Just some drawings I did late last year that I never got to uploading. Cheers.
