I really like that stroke thing to the left haha, you've done a good job making it have a 'realistic' presence. Nice forms as usual. I've been inspired by a section of this, gonna work on something soon I think.
Yeah i got interested a while ago in the idea of 3d brush strokes after reading about voxel (volumetric pixel) sculpting, the idea appeals to me cos in the real world paint does have a third dimension... like using really thick acrylic! Maybe i can explore it more sometime : )
ah sounds good. Been pretty busy with university. It's got me a bit tied down with personal work, but apart from that, been still active on DF and that. we seem to be growing and have good things happening lately.
Glad to hear that man! Sadly helping design the new version of Evoke and getting into an illustration agency hasn't left me any time for DF (or other projects i wanted to be involved in). Good luck with your university stuff, definately important to get that under your belt : )
definitely do. Thanks a lot for that Ben. Tell me however, how is it possible to gain say a freelance job or part time job here in the UK for digital design. What we do is definitely different to traditional graphic design. Are the any companies that specialize in digital design?
Looking forward to the next stage of Evoke. looking like it's got some big things for the public soon
" What we do is definitely different to traditional graphic design. "
That's a very good point and something i've been thinking about for a while now.. there are a handful of very creative people that can do there own thing and be successful for it, i think the rest of us then believe we can do it to but that's not realistic. I was fairly surprised the agency took me on because much of my portfolio is pretty leftfield! I think in reality though to get decent work in the future i will need to start working in a more 'marketable' style, aiming to keep creative credibility (sincereity really), hopefuly it's a means to keep doing what i love!
Those are just my thoughts.. i guess experiences with this are as diverse as the artists themselves : )
3D Modeling is mainly my field. doing a degree at University and on my 2nd year. 1 more year to go. But I most of the time try to find a part time job in the graphics field, thinking I would be able to help with the skills I've got, but it becomes impossible to find any jobs and graphic design has strict rules. print, alignment etc, you don't get the freedom you'd want with the style we have so i think they sometime ignore us or they simply don't look at all applications
