It is Done

*deep exhale*
It is finally done. I just sent the application. It is now out of my hands and into Blizzard's. I feel pretty good about what I ended up with. Now even if I don't get the internship I can at least feel good about giving it my best. Here are a couple pages of my portfolio with drawings I haven't posted here yet. Nothing special, just didn't want to have a post with no pictures because really, who cares what I have to say?

Tank Armor Painted

Alright, well here is the painted version of the tank armor I drew up for my Blizzard portfolio. Now I just need to finish typing up my resume and cover letter. Fingers crossed, everything is due in just three days. I'll be very relieved when it's all over with. And even if I don't get the internship at least I got a bit of practice painting. I'm still learning a ton from each painting I do. I'm excited for my next one just because it will be that much easier. Anyway, see you guys later.

Blizzard Internship

So I've been ridiculously stressed out over the past month trying to get a halfway decent portfolio together for Blizzard. It's been my dream since I was like 12 to work for Blizzard. At least half of what I know as an artist has come from watching those guys draw and having the chance to actually work with them is an opportunity I cannot pass up, no matter how much of a long shot it is for me to actually beat out all the other people who are going to be applying for the internship.

School's been keeping me so busy that I haven't been able to really do much of the old stuff I used to love and despite all the stress it's been really fun being able to go back to that. The real problem right now is that all my stuff is mostly line and very little painting. I was hoping to get a couple different paintings done by the end of the month but I'm still learning so much from each painting I do that I'm still only halfway done with the first done. It's turning out pretty nicely but it would have been nice to have a couple more by now. I'll post it when I'm done.

Anyway, here are a couple of the drawings I did that are probably going to make it into the Blizzard portfolio.

Dwarvish Mech

Last year in character design we got an assignment for "Lord of the Mechs." Long story short, I had to design Gimli's mech. I think it turned out pretty cool despite not being textured. Apparently the school did too because they changed the colors and put it in all of their advertising. Kind of a mixed blessing seeing as all these people are gonna see this half completed thing being shown as if it were complete. Anyway, concepts first and then model.

Life Drawing

I don't get to the life drawing sessions as often as I like because of school but here are a few I did a little while ago. The posses drawn ranged from about five to ten minutes.
