Put aside a little time to paint something for the sake of my sanity! Photoshop CS5 & Wacom Intuos 5.
Sunny days are made for The Go! Team’s best song ever.
I felt like painting some gold!

rooiphine asked: Hey there! I've been following you for quite a while now and I truly admire your work! I just wanted to know if you know of any jobs that are highly related to concept art work in the video game industry but don't require a ridiculously high skill level. I'm sort of trying to become an artist myself, but I'm not really any good and worry about my options. Even though art is somehow my main skill, there's just too much I still can't paint properly, I have no style, no technique...What to do? :' (
Oh boy. *Sucks in a deep breath*
Well thank you, first of all. I have to say I’m obviously not aware of -every single job going in the concept art industry- but: are there many that don’t require a high skill level?
No. Not to be a downer, but it’s highly unlikely. It’s a specialized, highly competitive industry. There are related jobs, of course, texture artists, modellers… but they don’t require less skill, just skills in a different area.
Perhaps it’s just something that’s meant to be more of a hobby? Get some practice and some confidence! Not having a job in the industry doesn’t make you any less of an artist.

I haven’t sketched for myself in what feels like ages. So it was time for Damien Rice and short haired girls <3
Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture
Ever since I first watched Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture I’ve rewatched it every year or so. It’s one of the most inspiring, funny and moving things I’ve had the pleasure to watch. It really stayed with me. If you ever need a good dose of perspective or a reminder of why you’re chasing your dreams; it’s this right here. Everyone should watch this at least once!
“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson
“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley
"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney
“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well. It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer
"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy
“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner
“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner
"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance
"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage
It’s still a work in progress, but after being here for a year our office is no longer decorated like a nursery! WIN.
