The Conversation
This was an assignment for my junior Illustration class where the only requirement was to have two or more character conversing in some way. During this time, I was also taking a fairy tales class that influenced a lot of my work that semester.
I consider this piece my “breakthrough piece” where I finally realized the style I wanted to pursue and my medium of choice: oil paints. I spent my entire sophomore year floundering with Photoshop trying to produce high-quality digital work like the rest of my classmates, but I just could not do it Looking back, it really hurt my progress as an artist. But hey, it was a learning experience, and that’s what counts.
Taking those fine arts painting classes really opened my eyes and made me realize, “Hey, I don’t have to just do this for my minor. I can apply this to Illustration too!” I probably would not have made the connection if not for my wonderful professor, C.F. Payne (if you don’t know who C.F. Payne is, look him up on Google Images right this minute), who also works chiefly with traditional media and encouraged me to pursue this. I thank immensely him for that.
