Don't read into the title too much, I'll explain it if you want, but it doesn't actually mean anything. I just needed a title. :3


For my first trick, Fancy Hippo.

    I like it! Looking through your other art too I see you have a real knack for colors. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Hey, welcome!

    The AC is primarily for critique, so when we get first posters, its nice to get a few images to look at. It'd be cool to have some idea of what your goals are as an artist, and what we can do to help.

    About me: I have a degree in Art from a State University, so I know things, but not all the things.
    I want to get into the game industry, but my portfolio is very much lacking. My dudes are stiff, I've tried teaching myself Blender (ends in tears every time) and I need some accountability.
    That's where you guys come in. I want to be torn down, and built back up. I want to be pushed until I have enough momentum to keep myself going. You're the parent holding the bike steady, and I just need shove until I can pedal upright on my own.

    Some of my best stuff came from 3am drawing sessions with my best friends. Alas I have a day job, so the 3am sessions have to be not so 3am-y, but you guys are now my drawing buddies.

    Materials: Photoshoop with a tablet, Markers, Acrylics, Oils, Watercolors, Pencils. Pretty much whatever feels good, man.


    NOW FOR SOME ART!

    Today we have Glinda

    Referencing your poses will make your life a lot easier, and give you more solid results.
    This is a big reasons why your art is so stiff. Take photographs of yourself if nothing is readily available.

    I've tried teaching myself Blender

    You can pick up a copy of maya from autodesk's website absolutely free for being a student. You'll find it much more intuitive than blender.

    Sorry guys, but I have no idea how you attach or post your artwork into the thread, any help at all?

    I left it to install while I was at work, and OMG my eyes aren't bleeding from the interface! I'm feeling a bit better about my future in 3D already!

    I was once told by a Blizzard artist that a concept art portfolio should be strong in three of the four categories: Character, Objects, Landscapes, Vehicles.
    I do need to work on landscape thumbnail studies, as I tend to go overboard and never finish.

    This is a doodle landscape.

    This is oil on masonite. WIP, and my scanner is too small so it's a bit blurrier than I'd like. Points if you can tell me where the landscape is from
