A word with jmbroderick
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
Hopefully I'll end up as a lead concept artist/3D Modeller. Also I have an interest and knowledge of game design so hopefully some point down the line I can work on my own game.
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
Hopefully to have some finished paintings that I am proud of and getting as much as I can from the uni course. Working on improving a lot of different stuff atm so any critique on my work will be handy.
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
Recently I have been looking into anatomy and drawing faces like mad as I suck at them. The Andrew Loomis books have been really helpful with construction. Now I am working on tone, perspective and colour through painting, using loads of references.
Where does your motivation come from?
Mostly looking at artists work and wondering how the hell they do certain things, That and knowing that I need to keep working in order to eventually get to a position of working on my own game or something, which is way down the line.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
Syd Mead, Isamu Kamikokuryo, Charles Vess, Chris Foss. Sci Fi, Gritty, Fantasy art, quite a variety of other things.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
I haven't done a lot of reading recently but I like the Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter series.
What do you listen to?
Florence + The Machine, Kasabian, The Prodigy, Movie/game soundtracks. Other stuff, not autopop stuff though like 1D and Bieber, and Nicki Minaj. :P
What is your favorite website?
Google, because I can find other websites. And Youtube, there is always something interesting there, a bit bad sometimes though if I'm trying to do work.
