Here is my submission for lesson two. I had a lot of struggles in this one but it was still a lot of fun like the others.

I'd say the things I struggled the most with was:

  1. Texture. I had a really hard time striking that balance with detail and most of the time it just feels really cluttered to me. Also I just didn't know how to stick to only drawing cast shadows, especially when (to me) it didn't look like Uncomfortable was doing that in a lot of the examples either and rather drew the contour lines of a lot of the textures.

  2. I really struggled with the intersections, especially box against box. For some reason how two boxes cut into eachother just doesn't make sense to me. Like which of the boxes focal points does the cut follow? Or is it a mix of both?

Thank you for your time!

Hey dude, I think your image hosting for your submission is a dud, nothing is really loading and appearing, I recommend you reupload your homework

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.
