Trained as a classical animator, I am a professional with 10 years experience in entertainment arts - in production and direction roles.
I am currently taking time of for professional development, and will be attending the San Fran Massive Black workshop. I have recently indulged my interest in digital painting - and would now like to focus on intensive study to master my own artistic practice in this discipline.
I would like to improve my painting & rendering technique, increase my skill level so as to create top industry work, with all the subtleties of design, lighting and composition that are required. I would like to establish my own style, while creating work that would open doors to film & AAA game clients, as well as fantasy & sci-fi illustration.
My goal is also to broaden my design base, including much more environment/vehicle & cinematics work. Stylistically, I would like to achieve a more painterly feeling - focused on colour and light more than line and detailing - as well as creating more realistic looking concept artwork - veer away from my "cartoon" beginnings.
Thank you very much for this opportunity for feedback and direction, it is very much appreciated.
