What to do as an artist in training.

What to do as an artist in training.

There are many ways to Rome they say. But I meet a lot of aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidance and this is what I tell them. (This is a revisited version of an old journal with new and updated guidelines/info) Find out what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions or hobbies to take on. Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of book covers or for card games and so much more. Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must do research on the most valued artwork from that niece. Find out what makes the best artist of your favorite field the best artist. Wha

Loving Doc Strange I really Knew who that was! Shub is so cool!

One of the most terrifying yet fascinating gallery i've ever watched (O__O)

Rarely seen such an amazing mix between such gorgeous choices of colors, matching your visions of Sins, Hells, Terror & Despair  Clap
 
Got many favs on your portfolio but "Dead eyes allways dreaming", "Embrace your Punishment", "Descarnado", "Organectomy", "Brand of sacrifice" & "Endless reign" are just breathtaking  :p
Their set of colour tones coupled with circle / spiky forms give a new meaning to "Twisted", "Scarred", "Madness", "Chaos", "Apocalypse" ... on a whole new scale !!!

These are perfect illustrations of the Darkness and Horrors lurking not only in the Universe, but also in every human. When I'm watching at them, words from Poe, Baudelaire, Lovecraft come to my mind (congrats for your part in Deep Madness btw, awesome boardgame)  :)

Thank you so much for sharing this original, immersive & mesmerizing Season in the Abyss (wink to Slayer ;) )

Wish you the best, cheers

Hello Mr. Sena, 
I want to start off by saying that I have deep admiration for your art and I am always excited to see what you post next!

Due to numerous other commitments in my life, I have never made time for myself to pursue/develop art (digital or otherwise) as a skill. Seeing your work has greatly inspired me to start dipping my toes in! I was wondering if you could share any of your experiences of how you started learning. I know that there are a truly overwhelming number of resources on the internet, but because I am especially "drawn" (ha. ha.) to your particular style of digital art, I wanted to ask you, if that is okay! Do you have any advice for beginner artists? All the best!

Hi there ! 

 Thank you very Much, your words means a lot to me really  !
 Well im not sure exactly what do advice. You just need to practise every single day and you will see you will have better and better results, you cant be negative because it´s a learning process and you will fail more then succed. In all my portfolio i might like only 20% of it because we can always see wrong things around it that you can improve it.
 Practise every day, and do what you like, dont force yourelf to do something that you know it´s not what you want and specially try to find your own style, very important.  If you create your own style people will search you because you are unique, actually that´s the most dificult part of everything - being original.
 For this, ofc, you need to learn the basics and fundamentals. You have it actually, everywhere. Youtube, books, patrons, photo studies are always very good too.
 I hope i was helpfull and good Luck with everything. You will make it. Cheers !
