Thanks everybody! I appreciate the warm welcome. I'm so brain-dead at the end of the day that I'm going to need all of the help I can get to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully I won't disappoint too much
- I don't do a lot of the cool stuff like motorcycle helmets/tanks or portraits, etc - I've gone through the gallery here and I have to say there's a lot of really impressive work. I'll be doing more product design illustration, kids or kid-friendly illustration - stuff like that. I've been studying up on Petty and Vargas' techniques a little and want to incorporate some of that into what I do (only without the scantily-clad women, unfortunately) stylistically...so I may be an odd mix into the crowd but hey, that's kind of okay I think. I was really impressed with airbrush tutor's youtube videos and need to get the basics down before I go buck-wild though.
I'm working on an idea now trying to find a stinking reference photo (or two or three) - but my organization system is about as tight as my ab skills, so it looks like I'll be sitting here for a while.
