Well, here I am, writing my first DeviantArt post and I'm probably going to put more in here than I have, or will, in my bio. I have started this DeviantArt journey NOW, as opposed to several years ago when I was just as interested in art as I am now, because I have a good reason to. I am starting an epic path in my life and I am very excited and curious as to where I will be lead next or what obstacles are going to come my way.
I'm in college currently, second semester, learning game design. My ultimate dream is to open a game design studio along with myself, and the hobby (for now) game design team I am working with. That means, there is a lot going on right now, between actually leading a team and working on games (and that means struggling with the technical barriers of MAYA, Unity and programming as a newbie designer), doing well and trying my hardest in school with five classes, and beginning my financial climb, and voyage to a happy, healthy, and successful life. That is actually the very reason I started this DeviantArt account just now.
Basically, I'm going to start doing art professionally to support myself, and I feel DeviantArt is the perfect way to improve my abilities, and gain the insight required, not just to make good art, but also to better myself creatively. Selling art will give me a motive to actually do art, which is something that I have been lacking severely due to all the time I am spending elsewhere. I have been interested in art forever and always, but don't actually do enough art. It's a challenge finding the time to devote myself when, already, I am focused on school and making games using mostly Maya, while at the same time trying to improve my Maya abilities. So through you guys, the community, I beg you to please criticize my art as harshly as you can and give me as much productive insight as possible- while at the same time encouraging me through pointing out what I have done wrong.
Writing in this journal has, already, been a very pleasant experiencing, and it's exciting be able to join such a talented and passionate community as this one. You may be seeing many more of these, whether I've reached a new level of success, or whether I feel I need to improve, I will probably be back.
