Introduction to Digital Art

This is my introduction to Gold Arts Award in which I will be exploring a new art form of my choice. This post will cover the first pieces of work I created.

Current Skills:

  • Traditional art
  • Paint (Acrylic, Watercolour)
  • Pen (Fine liner, biro, markers)
  • Pencil/Tonal
  • Creative Writing
  • Photography
  • Dance (Ballet)
  • Guitar
  • Graphic Design
  • Textiles

New Art Form: Digital Art

In future, I'd like to pursue a career in the gaming industry as a concept artist. Therefore the new art form I will experiment with, and attempt to learn, will be digital art. I may branch out into other industries that require freelance artists also. Although my strengths lie in traditional art, I can apply these skills to digital tools. Currently however, I do not know how to manipulate the tools to create works of art that reach the standard of the concept art industry. I will begin with simple shapes and shading, and grow from there.

As I have yet to buy software that will allow me to sketch freely on a computer, I have practised composition with collage, filters and colour. All pieces were created using secondary images (however the geometric art layered on top is my own) but in future I will use my own photographs and develop them in programs like illustrator or Photoshop. I may use these simple geometric pieces in future. I have saved the templates so I can use them as backgrounds at a later date.

I am 17 years old and hope to pursue Video Game Design as a career path. I hope to attend university later this year, and use my place in the game design community to inspire others as much as previous games have inspired me.
