Wiggley sea by westykid Wiggley sea by westykid
Kay, so, I was talking to Alex Devol a little while back (if you don't know him he's an amazing designer and a total dude [link]) I was asking him about how he go a foot in the illustration/animation industry and one of the pointers he gave me was to give out free postcards/fliers to companies you want to eventually work with, in the hopes that even if they don't respond they'll hopefully hold on to it because it looks nice. So that's what i set out to do this afternoon and eventually this is what i coughed out. I've been told (and i had this suspicion myself) that it's abit dull and not playing up to my strengths enough : (
So what i'm asking is (if you'll excuse how shamelessly attention seeking this sounds) what aspect of my work do you like the most and would be silly of me to overlook when trying to sum up what i can do in a postcard. Like if there's been a part in one of my games or films where you've been like "damn Adam, make that scene into a print"

Any of your half-cute half-creepy characters always go down a treat, and I'd say are pretty iconic of you and your art cuz.

I like the unique style of your little villages combined with your landscape techniques.
I think the way you make fog and water or other kind of ambience is really impressive.

I like the colors you picked (although I prefer your pastel tones) and the shapes you made up. But the text is hard to read, although that's basically the most important for you. However, what I always liked about your art are your compositions. I think that regarding the composition, this picture is under your strengths because it looks too crowded and there is no clear center of focus. Maybe you should go over and question each shape, if it's neccessary in the composition. By the way, I'm a little confused because as far as I remember, this is the first abstract picture I see from you. You should also create more tension by creating more contrast in dark/ bright.

i personally think that this looks like a generic vector image.

What your good at is creating quirky, mystical places. with little details that make the viewer want to visit. Also, creatures with loads of character.

You seem to have dropped your usual colour palette too :( dont get me wrong, these colours are great. but, they aren't the colours i would associate to your work.

i personally think that a combination of these are what makes you, you:
