Finished '-'
The timer lies probably by a few hours, but still: It -took- forever.

I'm actually somewhat happy about this. Besides the fact that the pose is boring and the casted shadows/lights didn't came out like I wished them to...
I sure will never ever do my part for an ordinary trade in this size again.

Crits and comments are very welcome &lt;3

This is a nice picture, I like your use of texture, it brings the piece together.

That's so great that you know what you want to do! A website that you might really enjoy is conceptart.org.

Also, there is a thread on their forums by a video game concept artist about how to approach the field of concept art.

A book you may want to read is 'Japanese Comickers' (it has a few tutorials and works by video game concept artists -the guy that did the Soul Calibur II illustrations).

Another thing that my be useful is checking out a few college websites that have an Illustration major. (scad.edu/ I think MICA and Ringling have that major, but I am not positive.)

Excuse me for the long comment, but I thought it may be helpful (I wanted to do concept art until I realized I would be just as happy being a painter).

This's lovely~ The amount of detail in the background is pretty impressive o_o I always lose interest once I get to the BG xD

One thing about character design though, is my comicking teacher at SCAD (I went there for summer camp) said it's an incredibly competitive field-- really only the best of the best get the jobs, and you have to constantly be able to spout out new and unique designs.

I always liked illustration though-- animation gets too repetitive (I tried it at SCAD-- it took me 3 days to illustrate a 3 second short of a stick figure and a dog). But illustration you usually don't have to redraw the same character/scene TOO many times C:

I always thought being a concept artist would be awesome, I just don't think I could come up with enough interesting designs. XD;

Anyway, good luck with your endeavors~! c:

*-* Oh.. I really don't know what to say. Thank you so much for the archive &lt;33

And also thank you all who said something about the concept artist thing, I knew about the risks of not getting employed if you aren't really, -really- good. But it could've been the case I didn't, which makes it really awesome you told me &lt;3
