Just spent the day working on a mythological creature – The Golden Gryphon. I figured it would be a really good way to make my entrance into the Electronic Arts world of animation and concept art/drawing.
This is probably my second attempt/day on the cintique tablet. I’m just experimenting with lighting and shadows as well as concept art and character design. So far it’s been pretty good. I just recently got a job at the local print shop and I’m learning the ropes to the world of advertising and the craft of appealing to the audience. I’m trying to wrap my mind into catering to specific audiences for the job and so far it’s been not too bad. I still have much to learn apparently.
I’m basically working for peanuts literally because it’s a work experience job and I’m in training for the graphic design job. Hopefully things will get better if i just hang in there. I guess the work experience and education is invaluable so I don’t mind the labor. I’m trying to stay positive but it doesn’t help everyone is so hard assed because they’ve had more experience than me. I have been doing a lot of tri-fold brochures, advertising and business cards for work.
I have also made a tri-fold brochure for my karate class which i’m really proud of , I didn’t ask for payment for the labor and design just that they payed for the printing. I was asked by my sister to sell my brother’s art at animethon this year and I am on the waiting list there for a table for the 2017 year.
I hope my art skills get better and.. I wish everyone well,
