I am Anthony Pismarov. I recently graduated from the University at Buffalo with a BFA. I am a Concept Artist and Illustrator. Currently I freelancing and teach at a local college. I've worked on two unreleased video games.
My primary focus is in environment design. I am looking to get some feedback on my portfolio. My goal is to get more concept art work in environments, character, and creature design. I'd also like to get into more illustration such as creating Magic Cards. I feel like my portfolio is lacking many things and I am hoping to get some input on how to fill some of those gaps.
I have posted a few things here and there is a link to my website in my signature.
As a guy who has been playing Magic the gathering for over a decade I feel like your pieces lack the close up nature of the cards.
You seem to put everything in the mid/background.
Like the knight picture would be a close up of his face and horse.
The two people with the campfire would be a close up with a rocky surrounding and the mountains as a feint outlines.
The troll would be smashing/wielding a big club.

Yeah I think I definitely need to get more close up scenes of characters in action.
