Unfortunately time was not on my side couldn't finalize the piece, due to work schedules and life in general, but I think I came up with a cool idea for a demon prince. Graphite on ledger paper

My second proko challenge. I got really inspired by the motorcycle reference and suddenly created a beetle-slaying techno-crusader. Ive taken to calling him moon knight like the marvel hero but totally open to suggestions for the dogs name. Anyway, thanks for noticing... drop a like for good fortune in the wars to come

Danea Fidler
Hello, My name is Danea (30), and I’m a Colorado based fantasy illustrator, creature designer, and wildlife artist. I have a BA in illustration and have been a partial professional artist for a while but aspire to be an illustrator full-time instead of relying on a non-art day job. My artistic goals ultimately include creating creatures for TTRPGs, while also possibly illustrating creatures and concepts for other games or books. I’m also open to the possibility of creature design concept work for cinematics/movies as well. Here are a few of my creatures and illustrations out of my portfolio. Any feedback or critiques welcome. Thank you all for your time and the opportunity!

Kyo Tagawa
Hello! My name is Kyo! My goal is to become a creature designer (concept artist!) in the game industry. I personally enjoy doing things that are believable and realistic, dark fantasy and sci-fi themed beasts (and a little in between). The past 2 years I've really buckled down and put my nose to the grind stone, attending mentorships, practicing, and constantly improving my weaker areas. I would love to one day be able to brainstorm and work with a group of fellow creatives and see my work come to life! And eventually, work at my dream studio, Bungie. I've chased this long term goal for many years with no signs of slowing down or stopping! I'm presently freelancing right now but would like to work in house to experience studio life. Thank you for providing this opportunity!

My name is Cuong a German hobby artist of vietnamese descent and I started out pencil drawing but in the past year have been mostly drawing digitally. I learned everything I know from online tutorials and books. I want to become a high school art teacher, illustrator at a company or a freelance illustrator. I would like to mostly improve on my composition, mood, color vibrancy/movement and drawing faster because I keep being unsatisified with the smallest things at the moment.

Hey, if you get to me thank you very much, Im 23 learning animation and architecture, havent really been able to make a splash yet so any tips to get noticed would be huge. Im working on adding more landscapes and still lifes, but for an animator, is that really what is being looked for? also, any advice on cover letters? Thanks, Mike Crean

Hi im 22 and studying animation and fine art. two questions; 1, how do you set up your scene, i.e. how do you choose where to place objects for balance and lighting, such as the ravens in this videos thumbnail? 2. i Noticed some submissions were not reviewed in your video today, and wanted to ask why some were left out, if it was due to time or something else? Thanks, Mike Crean

I am in love with the classic painted Hollywood movie poster aesthetic, especially horror ones. It's amazing how busy, bright and colourful they were compared to their modern counterparts! So, I've decided to take every artist's nightmare and the story of my life essentially, and turn it into a classic scary flick. Enjoy! I'm sure you all can relate ;P Painted digitally from scratch.

"THE MAKER" The scene represents the hunger for creativity that awakened my imaginative side since I was a child. I have always been inventing new worlds and scenarios, at first to be able to create context when I was playing with my toys and currently in my professional life as an architect and concept artist.  I hope I could transmit the duality between being a human being in a physical world and a global creator in an imaginative one. And being a global creator is not easy, a lot of multitasking involved... but all the time and effort pays off when that moment of illumination enlightens your life and it is impossible to think in anything but developing that amazing idea just witnessed in your head. It is inspired in those movies that merge thriller,horror and Sci-Fi. Digitally painted from scratch. Hope you like it!
