So it is official, I graduated this past Saturday from the Columbus College of Art & Design with honors, not to brag, but it felt good, it was a personal goal for myself, and I did it. Maybe it's that it hasn't set in, or I don't want to think about it, but for a lot of us, we will never be in the same room again, at least not together. My hope is that the close group will stay in touch, I'm sure we will. It was an incredible experience, but I feel as though I must decompress first then acknowledge everything I learned, but I know it is already soaking in. I would also like to give a big shout out to Miss Meg Krueger for landing the Hasbro Internship- Part of me selfishly wants her to stay in the area since we had a project planned for the summer, but of course, I am thrilled that she got such an incredible opportunity.
I'll post more thoughts as they come about, You will see some changes to the blog in the coming month, part of a major re-haul in branding, including my main website kylebrowndesign.com, but if you do take a visit over there, don't judge to harshly, I have taken down some things in preparation of the reconstruction. The artwork to be posted will be sketches and design work for my concept art portfolio. I have been watching my Gnomon DVD subscription in hopes of learning some new tricks. I may or may not apply to their one year entertainment design program, but doing so would require a portfolio rework with my coherent pieces.
Now this little piece was just for fun tonight, took about an hour. I am going to try and do some studies from life and photos to work on both anatomy and digital painting. I found some cool reference online and just went for it. One brush, two layers, very fast, very stylized. Crit if you like, it was just for practice, but words of advice are always welcomed and desired
As for family, Grace and friends, I will be doing a special post for you guys next
Thanks everyone, I look forward to the future
