STORY

Lets get things going again!

Recently I made a decision, one that my parents aren’t going to like (but I’m not a teenager anymore so…). Since I left school I’ve studied computers in one way or another, college, university and even worked in IT until I was diagnosed with epilepsy and had to quit my job. I did this mainly as a compromise. My parents wanted me to study business or accountancy as they saw this as something that would lead to a secure and successful career, it wasn’t what I was interested in. Around that time computing and computer science was a huge thing and I thought this was at least a little creative so took a B-Tech National Diploma in Computing at college followed by the Higher National Diploma in Computer Studies, focusing on Multimedia in the second year at university. Sure I got the grades and I actually kind of enjoyed it but deep down I knew that that wasn’t what I wanted to do in the long run. See I am one of those people that needs to be passionate about something to be successful at it and that thing that I’m passionate about is art and in particular concept art and illustrations. I have made the decision to focus on improving my skills, learning new skills and doing all I can to get the exposure that I need to hopefully take commissions and build a following. Getting my art out there is an ongoing mission, thank goodness for social media I say… :) I intend to post more of my work on here in the near future, I hope all of you will too!

Hi Henry John Basically it’s as simple as finding a project that you would like to be involved in, if you have a skill that they are currently looking for or just feel that you have something to offer you can request to join that project group.
On the other hand if you would prefer to start your own project you simply start a project by clicking on the Start link on the top left and fill out the required fields. Remember to keep the project description and tasks as clear and concise as possible and keep your tasks clear and simple so that people who request to join your project may complete them easily.
If you have other questions please don’t hesitate to ask Henry.

Hi Anton Voltchok, I use Inkscape for vector art, but Illustrator and Photoshop for everything else. I would say that I’ve used Photoshop more so than Illustrator but I am equally competent using both. I’m always learning new tips and tricks. I’m liking using the latest versions too.

Thanks John Rodrigues :p
