Your work is too good to live in a cave. Hope you figure out something sometime.

Last image is cool.

awesome work. Dont go to uni, get yourself up to Auckland, do a 3D course and get into the games/film industry.

No guarantees of course, but your artistic ability and grasp of color and lighting already give you an edge.

At the very least you'll find doing a 3D course helps your 2D art as well.
:bravo:

For your age you're showing a lot of promise just have to keep at it boy ;) Pity there aren't any traditional Atelier art schools here in NZ (like the ca.org run Atelier for example) because i would suggest you go down that route, i know of 2 NZ artists who have gone overseas to learn at Atelier's and they seriously kick ass, one guy goes by the nick "DirtyC" on the ca.org forums and the other fulla is Zarahn Southon.

Hit em up if you want to learn more about it.

Stuuuufff! I’m so damn good at posting on the interwebs it amazes me. Didn’t realize how old my last post was, Ill be good from now on I promise! or at least try and be less of a zombie ghost.

Worzel: nah shucks :) I think I would stay a cave rat no matter how good I got though.
oatestwder: But there are humans outside!!
mattforsyth: 3D is fo dem science folks! it hurts my brain to much. But Yeah, 3D is super useful Iv just never been able to motivate myself to do it, even with all the crazy cool 3D stuff you see out there.
Rusty: Thanks Rusty, Yeah I'm thinking about heading to an atelier in auz for a year hopefully, Its pretty tough to get into the States especially if the school your trying to go to isn’t registered or owned by the government :S

Sup man, just thought I'd throw out a suggested change for your Gohan and Piccolo pic. Just a little liquify magic.

Children tend to have smaller face to head ratios than adults, and their features tend to be a little softer. In fact this suggested picture should have smaller hands too.

Good luck with your future endeavors man, looking good so far :)
