Anyways, the whole point of this post was to mention Motivarti. If you don't know already, Motivarti (not Moriarty, mind you) is a neat program where artists working in the industry or with past experience take on other artists as mentees. I'm going to apply for this fall and I'm stoked :D Lately I've been working on bulking up my portfolio and resume. Looking forward to see what happens--the experience and the chance to ask the questions I have will be priceless. I'm hoping (provided I am accepted) that it will be as useful as the Pixar/VanArts masterclass I attended a few years ago. That class was intense, and, at the time, over my head. But I remember everything and seeing it make sense as the months go by is inspiring.
Here's a vector test...thing I did today. I haven't signed up for Creative Cloud yet so I'm learning how to make vectors in Photoshop CS5, which I already own.
CAN'T WAIT FOR HTTYD2, AHH
