I just had the most amazing talk with my mentor and a former member of Lucasfilms, Terryl Whitlatch an hour ago and god shes amazing and the actual best. The advice she gave me just helped to boost my confidence level so look out, ill be bringing the art fury!
Three big tips for upcoming artists Terryl mentioned that I would like to share with you all:
*Keep building the portfolio if you want your place in the industry, even if you land a pitch or get the job it will take you even further to keep practicing.
*Constantly explore new ideas while your skill is fresh. Study all the programs and dip your hands into many different oppertunities. Its what separates the amateurs from the professionals.
*NEVER EVER EVER LOSE HEART. Be patient. Your chance is out there and you will spend a good portion of your time preparing for it! Your not a failure if you haven’t achieved your goal yet, it just means you need a little more seasoning for the big moment!
I now have a public twitter, where I will post sketches, work in progress and art related news and things!
