Sup guys and girls!

First of all, I want to apologize for not responding to you guys. I get piles of comments and notes on this account. 
I know I've been getting many questions via PM and notes on DA and Facebook, but I haven't been able to answer them all. I do read them so keep commenting and sending notes!
I would like to have the opportunity for all to ask me common questions about me or anything art and game related here. I'll look through the comments and update this Journal Entry with new Q&A.
Only request is that you ask some relevant questions and not something too personal and inappropriate. 

With that said, ask away!

1. What type of Program do you use? What tablet do you use?
  • I use Adobe Photoshop CS5. I have tried couple other programs like SAI, Alias Sketchbook Pro, and Painter X, but photoshop has all the tools I need to create art.
  • I have Wacom Intuos 5 and Wacome Cintiq 22UX mounted on ergotron arm. 
2. How long does it take to complete a piece?
  • It really depends on what I'm working on, complexity of the piece, what style I'm going for, etc. 
  • For a simple sketch and drawing that I've been doing, they take about couple of hours to a day. 
  • For a full on rendering painting, I spend like 5 to 8 hours a day total of 1 to 3 weeks depending on the complexity of the piece. 
  • On personal project, I take my time and try to have fun rather than race myself to a deadline. 
  • At Riot, we do have deadlines but producers are very generous about giving us more time if needed especially when there are necessary changes that needs to be made towards the end. But I usually hit the deadlines :D
3. Did you go to school for art?
  • I did! I went to Art Center College of Design for 3 years. I almost graduated but I decided to leave and get an early start in the industry. That's when I got hired at Riot Games. 
4. How did you learn about concept art and character design? Have you had a course or did you study it yourself? 
  • Both! at first I was mostly self taught. I grew up in Arizona state, where there's absolutely no decent art programs in schools. I studied Computer Science Engineering for first semester then I went undecided for another semester because of how much I hated programming and I wasn't sure what to do with my life. Then I discovered Industrial Design, closest profession to concept art for games and movies available to me at the time. I wasn't very passionate about it, so I struggled through it for 3 years, doing fantasy art and doodles on the side. Then I heard students talking about Art Center College of Design which is highly respected school in NA for industrial design and I guess they're one of the first to provide concept art degree. So I took a year to prepare my application and portfolio. Art Center gave me a lot of knowledge about art and connections in the industry. 
  • The course at Art Center have been useful. I still think about it til this day! Anatomy, Shape Language, Silhouette, Color Theory, etc.
5. have you ever thought about making any tutorials on how you digitally paint? if there is one that already exists, can you provide links or resources? thank you!
  • I'm working on some tutorial video or timelapse video with commentary. There will be one from and my Gumroad page. Please check back in a month or two!

Thanks for the questions more Answers coming up!
