The Poppy by megillakitty The Poppy by megillakitty
My narrative project for Illustration 2. My five items to incorporate in one image were scrolls, sheep's head, spider, poppy, and ice caves.

This picture is about an explorer/traveler ram who has gone out to see some rare mountain poppies. He has made camp in an ice cave, and pulls out a flower and reflects on his home and lady sheep that he temporarily left behind.

Watercolor 11x17

EDIT: Thank you for the DD!!
EDIT2: Reuploaded with truer, better colors.

Kinda. I have some preliminary work pictures as well as some cruddy WIP shots. I don't know how informational they would be - but if you're curious I'd be happy to share them with you.

Ahh perfect!! I'm in Illustration but looking at visdev for video games. Any dream companies you'd love to work for?

:iconcrickatoo:
Crickatoo Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I was initially illustration too, but when they announced visual development I had to jump on it :giggle:. I would love to do character sketches and concept art for Pixar or any big animation studio (but Pixar is the top of my list). It's so nice that Dreamworks and Pixar are both local!
Ooh yes, video game art sounds awesome too! What about you? Any dream companies? :D

megillakitty Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah yeah visdev sounds perfect. It's basically a mix between 2d animation and illustration - and the ILL program here is very strong!! Disney and Pixar come on campus every now and then.

I'm looking at Blizzard or Riot (League of Legends)..Bethesda too. I've adored Blizzard for years. :)

Crickatoo Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Ooooh I was hoping you'd say Blizzard! I think your work would fit in very well with them; Bethesda too! I'm not as familiar with Riot, but with your skill I'm sure you won't have trouble finding work.

:iconmegillakitty:
megillakitty Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Riot has a very similar art style to Blizzard in my opinion. I believe they used their world generator at first. Although since League of Legends got big I'm sure they're independent.

Thank you so kindly. I hope you keep me posted on your semester in the fall! :)
