Hey guys! I've been sort of a silent observer (see: worshiper) of the talented folks on this site for a while, and decided I would get my act together and join in. (check out page 2 for more recent stuff--I took a sabbatical, mmkay? )
Basics about me if you care to know:
My real name is Genna, I just turned 20 in July (2007), and I'm currently living in Washington, USA. I'm already on my 3rd school out of high school; figuring out what I want to do has been a real bitch for me. I've finally settled on attending the Art Institute of Portland, and I'm going to major in Media Arts and Animation (though i'm thinking of eventually switching over to Game Art and Design). I've got a real problem with trying to do too many things at once and ending up not getting anything done, and that sort of applies to art as well. I really want to improve on everything (environments, character design, creature design, architecture and industrial design) and i get frustrated when I can't do everything at once. There's so much to get better at, and I've got such a long way to go in just about every area! But enough emo.
Basically what I want to do with this sketchbook is to motivate myself to draw every day rather than once in a while, and also get to know you guys so I have people to bounce ideas off of while giving feedback of my own.
Here's kind of a tangled mess of sketchy stuff I've done that I think is a pretty good rep of where I'm at in my 'artistic endeavors', and also one finished thing... Basically where I want to go is to loosen up my lines and composition (i want to get rid of excessive linework, actually) and work on mood and color choice. AAAAAAaaand, come hell or high water, there will be more! =D
