Hello all. I didn't see an introduction area so i'll post one here. This is probably the best category to do so.
I'm Andy, 26, father of 2, former Marine, Aspiring Graphic artist. I have been drawing/painting since October 2012. I was medically seperated from Active Duty in 2011 and was in a very depressed state. I started painting with Acrylics on Canvas in October 2011 when i decided to make my wife a birthday present.
My favorite Paninting. Tree in a Field
Lake infront of Mountians
I know i'm no picasso, I have a ways to learn... But with Youtube, Message boards, Art Schoool (starting this year I hope), and time i will get it down!
In November 2011 I found the work of Feng Zhu on youtube while browsing painting videos, trying to get better, and tried messing around with some stuff in photoshop. I was instantly hooked. Having a background in Professional E-Sports I contacted some of my buddies and made Graphic Design images for them. Logo's, Overlays, Backgrounds, things of this nature. I took skills i learned from painting and applied them to the design. I pride myself knowing I make everything from scratch and don't copy and paste like i see some do.
Starcraft 2 Streaming Overlay
Call of Duty Team Logo (this is what he wanted. I don't like the logo, but compositionally i like it. He drew the logo and had arrows designating what he would like there. I added the shadows and texture of which he was not expecting)
My Logo. A few of my friends said i should start doing these for the community, and i should brand them, and make a few $. I usually do not charge for my graphics since i'm very very new, but 5$ here and there makes it worthwhile!
Team Aspiration Gaming Jersey. I started to add backgrounds to make the images more professional. I haven't perfected it 100% but i'm grasping the concept. As we see with my logo i'm slowly getting it.

One of my personal Favorites!
Well that is a little about me and my work. I would love to become an artist in the entertainment industy. I am not sure where I want to be, but eventually would love to become a concept designer (don't everyone!). If I make it Great! If not, at least I tried. Here is an idea i had of a "character". Horribly rendered but i got the concept down!
I sign everything because i'm proud of my work. I need to move the signature on this one though :/
Thanks for taking the time to read my post and i look forward to talking to everyone! I am doing my best at learning, any critiques/help is greatly appriciated.
I own a sketchbook, which nobody will probably ever see, as well as a website/gallery... However I must redo it because IMO its not professional!
