Thanks Adam. I'll not critique myself, I'll be good.

The last time I drew regularly was about 15 years ago. Before that, I drew a lot. Self taught, so lacking lots of foundational skills. I wanted to get into comic art back then, or illustration. Started both a Fine Art and Visual Arts degree but, well, life gets in the way. I'm also in Oz (Australia), there were slim pickings in art at uni if you wanted to focus on comic art or game design back then. America was the place to be, or Japan.

I have a lot to learn now I'm back, and I don't just mean dusting off rusty old skills. The whole "art landscape" has changed - for the better I think.

Anyhoos, rambling. Let's see what you've been up to. :)

Edit. Forgot to ask, what about you? I find it hard to believe you are completely new to drawing. You have some skills there. As I said on your drawings, your characters look like who they are supposed to be. If you are drawing from memory, they're wonderful attempts. I can see what you were going for with both pics.

I can see you doing amazing things if you stick with it and go through the basics. Rome wasn't built in a day after all, they had to lay a foundation. (That's why I'm here, to learn the things I ignored when I was younger.)

Okies, really gone now!

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
