My name is Ward Silverman. I intend on going into the industry at some point. I have had some freelance illustration experience. My focus has been on illustration but I also hope to head into concept art in the future.This is my latest digital painting I’ve worked on. My vision for this scene starts off with the storm clouds over the farmland. Everything is fairly dark. Suddenly the clouds separate in one spot, as light begins to pour out and a giant mechanical hand reaches down. Perhaps some people come out of the farmhouse to look. I envisioned this as an eerie scene from a science fiction film. I prefer acrylic painting to digital and feel that my traditional pieces are of a higher quality, as far as rendering goes. I would greatly appreciate feedback, especially with the lighting. Thank you.
