My name is Bengi I am 20 and I live in germany. I recently started to study painting at the academy of fine arts in munich.. I was always interested in making art and thinking about it (what is art, what can it do to us, etc.).
However I am also really interested in concept art and gaming..
In my art class, we discuss paintings that we do in the matter of color, composition, technique, philosophy, meaning, etc...
We have several anatomy classes in which we can draw and paint freely.
But here is my "dream": I always wanted to work as a concept artist / 2D artist at Blizzard entertainment, yes, don't laugh.. Why? Because I grew up with these games and they mean something to me, how pathetic it may sound like.
Working at Blizzard Entertainment is a long way for sure, but I think it could be an awesome way!
That I chose to study painting wasn't the best idea if I want to be an concept artist for sure, but I want to try this as a challenge of creativity and traditional art.
So here is my question: How can I get into YOUR art? What could I do, to end up working at the biggest and most famous video game developer??
My professor HATES all kind of fantasy art or gaming things, thats why I never came up with it in my art class, and rather would like to discuss it here...
Here are some of my paintings/drawings, to give you a first impression of my style:
