A Whole Life Ahead by ISignRob A Whole Life Ahead by ISignRob
It all began when I watched for the first time Jurassic Park and Terminator 2...I hadn't any idea of what was all the things I was seeing at the screen, but I knew somehow that I wanted that for my life. When I was 12 years old, I went watching The mummy at the movies...and it was the 1st time I said consciously: "I want to work with visual effects!" I could barely draw this time...but I started to chase that.

Then I discovered the guilty for all those big screen miracles: Industrial Light & Magic. Each movie which ILM handled the effects, I got amazed more and more...I was more and more certain that I wanted to work with this...until 2007, when I watched Transformers (the 1st toy I remember to have). And they outdone themselves, made my jaw drop to the ground during almost all the movie...when I left the room I said to myself that "I WILL work on ILM". Enough said.

All that happened in my life lead me to this decision: of doing something different from the others, and to work hard for it. Since my good childhood, the years I passed on France, the Architecture course which I'm still on it, the new home; to the friends and beloved persons I met (to my right) and, most important, my family that supports me (to my left). I am, and will be eternally thankful for all of them.

I have a whole life ahead to make real the dream of working at ILM. It's up only to me to draw my path towards there. =]

My name is Roberto Gomes, and this is my dream. =]

----------------------------------------
Tudo começou quando assisti pela primeira vez Parque dos Dinossauros e o Exterminador do Futuro 2...eu n tinha nem noção do que era aquilo tudo que eu tava vendo na tela, mas de alguma forma eu sabia que era aquilo que eu queria da vida. Quando tive 12 anos, fui assistir A múmia no cinema...e foi aí que pela 1a vez eu disse conscientemente: "eu quero trabalhar com efeitos visuais!" Mal sabia desenhar nessa época...mas comecei a ir atrás.

Foi aí então que eu descobri a culpada por todos aqueles milagres da telona: a Industrial Light & Magic. A cada filme q a ILM cuidava dos efeitos, eu ficava mais e mais maravilhado...tinha mais e mais certeza de que era com isso que eu queria trabalhar...até que, em 2007, eu assisti Transformers (o 1o brinquedo q eu me lembro de ter). Eles se superaram, me fizeram ficar de queixo caído durante quase todo o filme...quando saí da sala eu disse pra mim mesmo que "VOU trabalhar na ILM". E ponto.

Tudo que aconteceu na minha vida levou a essa decisão: de fazer algo diferente dos outros, e de trabalhar duro pra isso. Desde a minha boa infância, os anos que passei na França, a faculdade de Arquitetura que continuo cursando, o novo lar; até os amigos e pessoas queridas que conheci (à minha direita) e, mais importante que tudo, minha família que me apóia e incentiva (à minha esquerda). A todos eles sou e serei eternamente grato.

Eu tenho uma vida inteira pela frente para realizar o sonho de trabalhar na ILM. Cabe somente a mim agora desenhar meu caminho até lá. =]

Meu nome é Roberto Gomes, e esse é meu sonho. =]

Robertiiiiiinhoooo! hehe brincadeira!

Muito bom cara... mas é claro que num posso ficar apenas nisso.

O trabalho ficou muito bem feito, as cores, todas elas combinaram, o efeito das pedras, o verde da grama, os detalhezinhos todos preparados, tenho certeza que você se esmerou o máximo para conseguir isso!

Realmente, quando você me mostrou os esboços eu não imaginava que chegaria até esse ponto, eu assumo que fiquei surpreso com o resultado final. Realmente, seguindo uma trilha pelo o que você descreve, da pra entender perfeitamente através do teu trabalho o que você quis passar.

Não há necessidade de fazer um trabalho incrivelmente foda a nível de técnicas, ele precisa passar uma idéia, é foi exatamente o que você conseguiu. Com bastante criatividade.

Parabéns!

Eu quero saber é, que se depois que você conseguir os seus objetivos, você vai terminar de colorir esse trabalho? hehehe

Forte Abraço
Miguel Couto

Sorry for this comment so late after submission, but this image really touched my heart.

Your hope for the future is so similar to mine, it almost makes me cry. Just like you, I too want my destination to be ILM,
and the thing what sparked this off was - just like you said - the movie "Transformers". Their special effects were/are so
incredibly stunning, and I'm so happy to have found an fellow artist with the same dream who has been able to portray
it in this amazing way! I love all the details and how you displayed your prevoius way of life in this special way, and how
you displayed your future vision!

I just love this artwork! I hope so you get to ILM someday (or have already? ;) ), you deserve it!

(Oh wait, may I ask you what the gap/gorge in the path means? If it's too personal, you don't have to tell, of course!)

Hi! I'm really glad this artwork meant something to you, it's great to know that :)

Unfortunately I'm not there...yet, but who knows what the future gives us? :)

The gap/blank area means something simple actually: it's up to myself to fill in the gaps and blanks. The amount of hard work and will to get over the obstacles will make me finish the "full picture". Or at least, something like that. :)

Feel free to see my other artworks, I will be glad to answer any questions! :D

Cheers and have a nice day!

No problem, I really like it!

Still not there? Awww, but I'm sure you'll make it - your art is amazing, you can draw so well and realistic! :aww: (If you meet Optimus, tell me :eager:)

Actually, I was meaning the gorge above your second (or first?) car and the blue and red pencils (what are they meaning? The start of your artistic life?). But I hope you'll be able to color in the other, blank parts of your picture soon!

Hey Roberto - this is a very nice piece. The contrast between the finished and unfinished bits are a great concept. I've looked at a few of the entries over the past while and have not seen this idea used, so it makes your entry stand out in that respect. Excellent job. Good luck to you my friend!!

Thank you once again my friend ;)

It really, really looks amazing! I really love the whole concept of the picture and that the beach far away looks still 'unfinished'. It shows that we can create all the amazing stuff by drawing our imagination. Also I like how you have drawn all the people there as if they all want to get to the other side.
I really feel a little bit like you, because I also dream of working for a game/movie company and this picture really can enbody this dream- it's well done indeed! :D
I just feel like it would still need some differences in the value- like a darker foreground as a contrast to the very bright background. Other than that, I can't give any critique, it looks really wonderful- I hope you win something with this picture! :hug:

Owww thank you for the wishes of luck :hug: Actually I thought about darken a little the foreground; I even did that, but not too much to make it harder to 'read', because all my life until there, since the day I was born (the lower left corner) was important to depict, so I tried to darken where there is shadows, and to make it as bright as possible when there is light, to give some high-contrast spots...it's something from my own drawing style #)

I'm really happy to know you liked my entry! =D I wish you could participate as well =D
Cheers and hugs! :hug:

OrmIrian Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Still, I think it would fit, if the foreground would be a little bit darker- I mean, it's your past and you might not remember everything very clear, so it will lay more in the dark than the present and the future :)
Yeah, and it's really a cool style, I think :meow:

You're very welcome! :D
Awww, I also wished I could have enter, but somehow I didn't have a really brilliant idea for a concept and I was lacking also of the time (although I surely would have managed to finish it in time, when I had a really great idea)- but I somehow lost a little bit of my motivation since the last time :P

Hey Roberto!!

I can't stop staring at all the little details you've put in! The little shadings of the cliffs....the Eiffle Tower...the little mecha robot in the corner ... even the roof tiles are amazing!! Omg! The tree even! All that hardwork has paid off :P

Boa sorte para o concurso...ja vi varios trabalhos..alguns mt bons...outros bons, mas em termos d criatividade mt fracos....o teu tá bom nas duas coisas....esperemos q desta vez tudo seja como o consurso anterior e de preferencia a ficares nos primeiros lugares ;)

SORTEEEE
