Welllll , I've been a long time fan of the strip, but for some reason I've never been to the forums until now. I looked around and saw a lot of work that I thought was great, but didn't really comment on because I couldn't think of anything constructive to say (I'm terrible at critiquing.) Anyway, since this is an introductory post I'll give some info about me.
I just graduated from the Art Institute of Washington this past June majoring in Animation. I'm looking for work doing pre production in 3d animation, or in video games, or illustration, or comics. I really have a deep appreciation for entertainment art in general. I've been having a HORRIBLE time getting any kind of work though, but I'm just gonna keep trying and applying until I get something. I really want to work at a studio like Valve, Insomniac, or Lucasfilm Animation (on the Clone Wars series) but I totally acknowledge that I'm aiming high as shit by reaching for those right out of school. I love those places because of the stylized work (which seems to be a rare thing in the games industry now) The truth is, things are so unstable that I'm probably going to apply to places like Best Buy or something pretty soon until I can land my first gig. Anyway enough rantin and sobbing, here are a few recent-ish pieces. Feel free to tear them apart (and feel free to tear apart my portfolio in my sig too, I need to GET BETTER).
the last one is a self portrait.
I hope you all enjoy.
