Just Started Here!



  • Hi!

    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.



  • Thank you!
    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..
