I recently had a friend that works in the animation industry give me critiques on my portfolio. Strengths I have many, but my weakness is my dependency in line. I guess having always wanted to be a comic book artist as a kid has set me in some habits I wasn’t quite aware of. To make it in the animation (specifically 3D) a development artist needs to be able to render things with the use of color and light. Both of which I struggle with. So going through my portfolio, I’ve decided to revamp it by adding more current work. I’ve been so busy working, teaching, and animating that I’ve started letting my artist side sit on the side lines. So this holiday break, along with Christmas break, I’m hoping to get some work done.
Here is a sample of a piece I’m working on at the moment. I call it Little Darkness Hunter.
