I haven't got much variation in my portfolio though so I am heading for new grounds and will expand my horizons. I had a chat with one of my tutors yesterday, and asked him what sort of jobs I'd be able to apply for when I've finished my degree. He told me exactly what I wanted to hear and I had this bubbly feeling just exploding inside me, almost made me cry to be honest, when he said that I could get in to the industry as a concept artist. This means allot to me since my tutor is former lead pre-visualisation artist for EA-games and lead artist on Ed, Edd and Eddy.
He also told me what I need to focus on. Or well he said, where is your MEN! :'( So there we are, men it is. I am so safe in the female body, and I actually don't enjoy drawing men, BUT I have to and I know that to, I've just been skipping around the subject for a long long time now.
So, on the drawing schedule from mid February there will be allot of men, hands and feet, since they are my weaknesses. I will also make more character sheets to develop my characters. I already have four planned, but I will only show you three since one is for my boyfriends big project "Agent Orange", which is a big hush hush.
I will probably start with this girl, yes I know, girl, but I have been working on this painting for a good while now and I came to love the character and though that she needs a personality and history, so I've slowly started building a story around her. Here's a little sneak peak, she is soooo not finished yet and I am planning on building the background in 3D to make it a bit more interesting.
The second charcter will be a girl to (I have no numerical order in which I will draw them this is just to show you who they are). This girl is a sort of sci-fi/tribal indian thing (?) if that makes any sence. I have only just started colouring in the sketch that gave me the idea for her but here she is anyway.
And the third one will be male, along with the fourth one. I haven't got any sketches yet, but the character for "Agent Orange" is well thought out and will be well cool. I am so sad I can't show him to you though. Ah well, for the one that you WILL see, it will be a centaur. I think I will go up the steampunk/sci-fi road just to give it a different take. I know centaurs are fable/fantasy creatures, but there is nothing stopping me from making it a bit different. I had the idea from an old drawing I did for a tattoo book called "The Mythical and Spiritual Tattoo Design Directory"
I know that the anatomy is a bit off, but that is just one of the reasons for me starting to draw more men.
So that is my plans and hopefully this will land me the job I dream off. Who knows, but please help me by keeping your fingers crossed.
