I am pushing myself now to work on backgrounds, if you've ever noticed I rarely do intricate ones it's because I usually lose patience and I need to practice more on them. So I'm going to be trying to do intricate background paintings in Photoshop or Painter 12. If anyone cool backgrounds that wants me to do a free digital rendering please shoot me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo attached or a link to a flickr or photobucket.
I am looking to practice on outdoor scenes in daylight and night time, as well as inside buildings with one or multiple light sources. If you have photos of a foyer with a winding staircase or any sort of Cathedral interior please send me a link or e-mail me your photo.
Professional wise I am currently illustrating a children's book and in the works of sealing a deal to illustrate a native storytelling with a publishing company.
This is my free lancing, illustration, until I can find a full time Graphic Design or Illustration job. We don't have really anything in Oklahoma illustration wise, and hardly Graphic Design things. I work part time with the same job I've had for almost five years and as of late it has been...hectic to say the least. I am very eager to move on and hopefully find a job on one of the coasts like California where there are an abundance of Illustration jobs.
Thanks for listening~
