Content of my avatar. Might as well post it here too. It was a speed painting-- which meant, given the whole painting part, it still took four hours. https://mastodon.art/media/ucsXourLcDtf3dzl6Cc
Hi there, I'm FlipFlop I'm an illustrator currently working on my colorwork with a focus in concept and editorial! This piece is from a project called Opposites Attract and is titled 'Forget Me Not' #introduction #mastoart #art #illustration #painting #digitalpainting #digital #elephant #flowers #forgetmenots #conceptart #concept #hithere #retropost
I'm posting one page every day for ten days of my webcomic, #Eos, until I start posting new pages weekly starting December 1st! If you like stories about girls and their robots, this might be for you! Please check it out!
Advice on breaking into commercial illustration. Show more
I was just asked:
"Can I ask more about how you broke into the field? I dropped out of art school and it feels like there aren't many paths to proffesional gigs without the connections"
I'm a high school dropout who entered the field while living in a rural town of 600-ish folks. Zero connections -- unless my pet rooster was an agent and I never knew about it.
Success is partly luck outside of your control, but only you dictate your volume of work. I made tons and posted it everywhere.
More work in the world = better odds of people seeing it. That part of the equation is entirely up to you.
Trying to add more backgrounds to my characters. Any tips on how I could make pieces like this work better? I'm always struggling with the background overtaking the subject, so usually I don't use backgrounds at all, or end up blurring them like this. Open to critique and suggestions! https://mastodon.art/media/EimSnxmrfwwdKlrpmtA
Finally have some time to post some art on here. Hello! I love exploring diversity and creating D&D themed art as well as doing photo studies. Always looking for ways that I can grow and improve ^_^ #introductions https://mastodon.art/media/XyiRp4VT13G55STQQ0k https://mastodon.art/media/NA2SICIFU1ig6MFv09g https://mastodon.art/media/vc8ujL1Mb7fWtHW0Zq0 https://mastodon.art/media/eq81vu8c6VB9E2FX42o
