Decembers just around the corner, and so is the end of Fall semester! Did you know, I get a month off?
Recently I (finally) decided that the career I'm aiming for is a concept artist. I understand that is a long process and all the expectations Id have to meet. That's why I'm getting my own Wacom tablet (until I graduated I used a school provided Wacom Intuos 4 Med. tablet) and I'm going to step it up like you have never seen.
For a while I was going to get a Bachelors in business for marketing simply because my dad said it was the most promising, which I know is very true, but that's not how I plan to live my life. A bachelors in Fine arts may be a risk, but seriously, do you see me doing anything else? Art has been my entire life, and I know that if I want it bad enough, and work it hard enough, I'll be able to develop a strong enough portfolio to interest someone with a job. That's not to say I think "If I work hard, something will come up" fuck no. You better have one hell of an understanding as to what you have to do, what you have to have and what skills you better have beyond others. Concept artist (Film / game department) requires extremely good illustration / graphic design skills, and I plan to work extremely hard to further develop both (not to say I'm limiting to just improving those Two skills)
All prior work to December will be considered "prior work" and no longer counted as serious work (restarting yo) with the exceptions of a few successful pieces (such as "Jenny's foot") which will remain in my current portfolio.
Thank you for all your support over the years, you have given me confidence when I felt I lacked, and helped me realize that I can do this (if I keep to it)
