Hi Jasper, I think you're work is truly awe-inspiring and eye opening. I read your first post that you are 17 and not sure if you can get ito art college. Well, I am 16, I may not be as good as you but here is something you should look into. Is your school or any other schools that are looking for young artists? I went into this art program where they give scholarships for anyone who takes their first sample class for free and even help you with stuff for portfolios and telling you which colleges give scholarships and which don't. Stuff like that!!
Maybe, if you haven't tried already, should get into this stuff besides selling yourself to riot ( which imo, should have you on their team)
but open yourself up to opportunities. I heard children's books and book covers are very good for freelancing to make up money for college. And plus maybe it would open yourself up to a different part of art you never knew about. You're art seems very like league of legends and WoWish, which is amazing. I am sure you will achieve your dream, don't let money ever bring you down because you can always obtain it!
edit: hope this was useful :blush:
I am going to be amazing! .
That last painting is pretty cool. Just one other comment. The red pen stroke on the scroll right above his head. For a moment I thought he a horn coming out of right side of his head.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
i love your juicy colors man!
aviable for fulltime and freelance
So. Awesome. Good luck with Wizards and EA! I'm sure you'll blow 'em away
Also, that last illustration looks great! I like how you used that bright blue light to pick out the focal points. The only criticism I have for it is that you have so many high-value, high-saturation spots in the foreground (the energy, the figure, the flower petals, etc.) that the background is almost completely lost. Even when I try to look at it my eye keeps shifting back to the figure. Granted, that could also just mean you're doing a good job of keeping the viewer's eye on the focal point, so if that's what you were going for, good job. Wow, that was rambly. Just food for thought XD
skMOP Well I did them for a contest to hopefully get some exposure. Unfortunately, none came. lol. I only played the game for a month to do the art.
Marlo Hehe I'm not 17 anymore, turned 21 in December. I'm well past the whole college thing now haha, I recently 'dropped out'. Maybe I'll go back somewhere soon, maybe not. Wanted to work on my portfolio a bit and land some more freelance before I do anything.
Pigeonkill Thanks! Good point though, I hadn't noticed it!
merl1n Thanks man!
jedininjaman Thanks, I agree they may be a bit too sharp. Tried working a different way with selections. Disagree about the colors though. I find the saturated palette to work very well for the style of art that League of Legends uses.
DANKA Thanks man!
Alexandr Pascenko Hehe thanks a lot for stopping by man!
Reedux Ah yes! I'll see if I can post some up soon. I basically got the process from Hannes's tutorials on deviantart though.
Fetsch Thanks man I hope so!
Meps Thanks man! I actually think what you mentioned is a good thing. I didn't want the background to take any sort of control of the image. That is basically all I wanted it to be, just a 'background'.
kischi Thanks man!
CommandoFilis Thank you!
Kungfoowiz Thanks a lot man!
Wow, just finally finished up a bunch of work. Now I just have to decide what personal stuff to do. Probably work on some studies and get back to Zelda stuff. Anyway, here is the first EA test that I took. They contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked if I would take a test. After doing this one, they thought my work would be better suited for another team at the same studio, so I was assigned a second one. I just finished the second one late last night, so I'm awaiting the results. This is just the stuff from the first one, done in two days.
Great sketchbook, you've really developed a lot since the first page, inspiring to see.
have you heard back from EA yet??
sb most art copied to page 1

f1x I appreciate it, thanks a lot. I feel the same way about art tests, but it's how things are done I suppose.
Seaport Great! Glad you liked it.
Well back to some studies and Ocarina of Time bosses for now. Here's a study from Star Trek. I really liked how this turned how, and I would love to start pushing my work more in this direction. Hopefully trying to move some of this stuff into the zelda monsters.
