Just Started Here!
I'm BJ and I just started taking classes here and getting involved in the forums.
I never went to art school but I do have some experience in the indie game industry with a dream of becoming a full time freelancer so I can stay home with my kids.
Umm, I guess I should give some art history for you all, huh?
I've been drawing for 22 years now and have been a commission artist for 15 of those years but wound up falling into a point where I wanted to quit because I didn't like my work at all but art was a part of me so I just kept trudging along. I also worked for a couple of indie game companies, doing game cover art and some conceptual design but had to leave due to parental responsibilities and rough living conditions.
After moving to a quiet little town, I got a new drive and am even in the process of three series of art pieces that I hope to compile into books or pdfs for folks to download with one of them being completely free.
I found SVS and I am so excited to learn as much as I can!
I would love to meet some new people and get to learn some new things and get critique from my peers. I am ALWAYS willing to learn and hear what people think!
Nice to meet ya'll!
@MuttsGraphix Welcome to the forums BJ! Great place to be and look forward to seeing your projects.
I'm kind of nervous to be honest since I've never done anything like this before but I hope to get used to it!
@MuttsGraphix I was nervous at first as well. Scared to post my work, never thinking it was good enough. But everyone here is so supportive.
Welcome! You are going to love it!
Welcome to SVS! It's a great place here :-) I was scared to post here too, to start with...but that wears off with time :-) Looking forward to seeing your work..
