OK, so I attempted to become a concept artist once and I failed miserably, this time I'm serious.
Seeing my progress in real-time is amazing. Waking up, not being able to draw anything and in the evening drawing skulls like a pro (well, not really ), that proved me that I can. This time I won't fail!
I'm 17, a photography addict for 2 years and I'm very damn good at it, I've been shooting like 12 hours a day since I started, but I've always wanted to do painting/drawing as a career. I've always failed because I was way too lazy. This time I'm serious.
There's nothing else in life that I will make me happy and not poor. There's no money in photography, too many people do it. I also do 3D computer graphics for 5-6 years already (modeling, texturing, etc.), I'm very good at it but it's hard and I wouldn't like to do it as a job, I prefer it as an awesome hobby art form.
I do programming but I don't like it, it's really boring and I play guitar and drums and write songs, but that's also not for a job...
So I only have painting now.
But I have a slight issue. I'm colorblind, but very little/subtle. Only very very desaturated greens, reds and/or yellows look *almost* the same to me. I'm wondering would that be an issue, could I get hired, do people ask for that or only portfolio matters??
Personally, I have ZERO issue with that, as I said it's very very subtle and only on some very similar colors. I wouldn't even knew about it because it's extremely unnoticeable and makes me no problems at all. I can color-grade my photos perfectly and I know I see extremely well. I just wanna know would studios/employers ask for that kind of stuff or only your work matters.
OK, so I want to focus on environments and faces/figures first. I'd like to design worlds, environments for movies/games and characters to put them in these environments and also portraits/faces. That's my rough idea.
So to begin, here are some skulls, I think I should master the human skull and see it in 3D in my head to actually be good at drawing/painting heads (no pun intended)
So here we go:
Sorry, about the bad quality, won't happen again. My external flash batteries are dead so I had to shoot in terrible light.
I draw with a ref image and try to redraw it with as little looking at reference as possible.
There will be some digital stuff as well, I have Wacom Bamboo Fun medium and Photoshop.
I have a slight problem with references. Every single ref image I find online is different and I don't know which one is correct. Can you guys show me where to get the right stuff because every skull I find online has quite different proportions?
Anyways, thanks for reading this wall of text.
I have to get used to drawing every day. Won't be a problem I guess now that I've started pretty nicely
See y'all tomorrow,
