What sort of an illustrator are you? What sort of career do you want to have?
I think I’m more of a concept artist. I love drawing and working with my hands. I can have crazy imagination sometimes. I just love creating. I’m really into fictional stuff and stories that walk the line between reality and fiction. Being able to create new things would be great job. I like writing too, so i guess i could do story boards or comics as well.
Does your present body of work reflect your aspirations? Could it do so more strongly?
My work does sometimes. I love the projects we had for illustration 4, but i wasn’t that experience with digital media. I feel that I hold back a lot in class and I find myself not happy with most of my work. I need to definitely learn to work quicker. So yes i know my work could be stronger. I just need to loosen up or something.
List ten images/themes/techniques/subjects/formats that your portfolio needs in order to become more in line with your aspirations.
I need more character designs and concepts art. I want to also focus on doing landscape and environment studies. My digital work needs more practice as well. I have to get better a digital painting. I wont feel satisfied until i do. I really need to take more chances and do what i know i can do. Stop holding back. Painting..I’ve really grown to love painting. I want to do more of that as well. I never used oil painting so i want to try that tool. My work needs to show what I am capable of. My portfolio needs to show that i want to be a concept artist.
When it comes to technique, once again my digital work. I feel that there is always room for improvement when it comes to art. It’s never perfect.
