@binman8 The colours would definitely be fun to play around with "electric and neon".
I am 28 years old and since I was 21 I have had 3 serious health crisis and GAD (general anxiety disorder) as a result of my experiences. I am also a Christian and my faith plays a pivotal role in sharing stories and the values I incorporate in my work.
I specialised in Art & Art History, photography and print media and graduated in 2016. I have a genuine desire to pursue illustration. My outside interests include working with children and youth, socialising with friends playing board/card games and retreats, and an art group with ladies from my church.
My future Illustration aspirations include a range from:
Children's Books, Book Covers, Comic/Graphic Novels, Board/Card Game Art, and Concept Art.
My favourite Subjects include:
Landscapes and Environments, Animal and Creatures, Story/Relationships. Just recently cute robots.
@burvantill Thank you. I do notes like a journal entry and to help me learn. But even with understanding things are made up of shape and form I struggle to be able to build structure without references and I am yet unsure how I would combine say 3 references and draw my own from them. I also like drawing animals, people, and environments but find it exhausting stretching myself as I try to learn the fundamentals to build them. Would it be best to focus on one until I understand how to draw them or should I keep practising drawing all three categories?
I also want to help my work be more loose but still have a strong line, not stiff if you catch my drift?
Anyways it was real nice of you to comment.
@rachy lols I thought of something similar. This story wasn't the first thing that came to mind. But it certainly helped me with my idea. Right now it looks like the piper is drawing them to him but not drawing them away from town. Perhaps have the town buildings farther off to the sides so it looks like they are leaving town.
My brother played the Trombone so this caught my eye, and the memory of the sound is pounding in my head. We had a dog at the time. He'd howl with my brother's trombone and my flute playing. The love sacrifice of listeners lols. I love how the momentum of playing lifted the son up and for that reason why would not he need to tie up his shoe laces (you can't trip on them in the air =)) I also enjoy how his parents have just grabbed anything to mussel the sound.
@binman8 Looking at your work I would say Posters best (that nice graphic hard edge, minimal colour selection and how you present your subject (portrait and action poses)) or Comic covers if that's an viable option for the same reasons.

@chip-valecek Not knowing the story at all, who is Riot? "as one of five symbiotes who are effectively the "children" of Venom" from a ScreenReant Article.
Anyways "symbiotic" came up as well. Maybe develop in your work how Riot came into being along with battling. An extension from human/Spider man to Venom and from Venom the "child" Riot. As I said I don't know the stroy very well, but even if others are not doing it, but it has been asked to include it, do take their suggestion to heart if you feel you are capable of pulling it off!

@Chip-Valecek C has a lot more drama and struggle with transformation and pose so I am liking that one for that reason. I don't know much about Venom as a character past what I have seen in maybe one movie, but I think he is really cool. I definitely like internal turmoil in characters that manifests on the exterior. No one by God really knows our inner struggle so I think that's a real powerful subject to tackle. Whether you win or not, good for you for challenging yourself! Have you an idea for your background?
