This is where the message goes!

Having trouble coming up with something to draw? No worries - while you'll eventually learn how to start from a tiny seed of a thought and gradually nurture it into a complex concept to explore through design and illustration, it's perfectly fine not to be there just yet.

For now though, here's an idea that might interest you.

The Big Hamster Wheel of Life

Your pet has probably been spending a lot of its life sleeping, napping, snoozing, and generally not being conscious or helpful. Well, tough luck! We've all come on hard times and it's time for old Yeller to get a gat dang job.

I don't exactly know who's hiring animals, but that's not my problem! Show us your pet at work, the challenges they face and how they overcome them, or what I imagine would be a pretty tricky interview process to get the job in the first place. But whatever it is, it better bring in some money because we've got bills to pay and kibble ain't free!

This prompt is part of our special "Pet Week" Promptathon, where all of the prompts are themed around our pets. You are encouraged to use your own pet as a focus if you have one, but if not, feel free to use ours! You'll find many photos of our beautiful Sweater Sleeves here - we've been posting one each day for the last six months for just this purpose.

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.
