Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is all work i've done over the last year and a half or so. The last pic is one I doodled with my Galaxy Note 3 2014 edition. As far as what progrems I use I've used Sketchbook Pro over the last few years but I recently upgraded to Manga Studio 5. If anyone has any tips as far as MS goes I'd appreciate the input.
I also write poems and stories. Again thanks for checking out my stuff.
"Tell us what your goals as an artist are."
I mostly create art to please myself, my partners and a close friend. That being said I like making people smile and believe in themselves. I also love creating mature art because I love that sort of thing. For the most part I just want to get better and if I happen to make people smile and make some money from it, awesome. I'm not really into getting rich or anything. I just want to have fun.
"Are you a hobbyist looking to learn to draw landscapes for fun?:
"Are you putting together a portfolio to get into art school?"
I went to CCRI back in '93 but while I got an A+ in Children's lit. college wasn't for me. I've always had difficulty in school (I was in special ed. classes throughout most of grade school and have a hard time learning things) and ended up losing my Pell grant :/
"Are you currently a professional looking to further refine your skills in a certain area?"
I don't have the fortitude or ability to focus that being a professional in anything requires.
"How long have you been practicing this form of art?"
I've been drawing since I was a kid but I've only been learning how to be better at it for a few years.
"Who are some artists or styles that you admire who you strive to be like in your own work?"
There are a number of 'furry' artists I admire like Blotch, SabreToothErmine, and DarkNatascha but I also love traditional fantasy artists like Larry Elmore and Keith Parkinson. I'm also a huge fan of Berke Breathed and Bill Waterson (Bloom County/Ouland/Opus, Calvin & Hobbes). I love comic art (Dave Sim and Gerhard's work on Cerebus), Steve Gallacci (Albedo), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo) and Eastman & Laird are huge influences on me as well. I'm also big into children's book artists like Dr. Suess and Trina Schart Hyman. [/spoiler/
