Golden Grass - Background by NadiavanderDonk Golden Grass - Background by NadiavanderDonk
Background version from my recently finished commission:



Inspired by this photo: [link]
------------

Yesterday I have been to an Art College to check out about Game Art. (What I want to do next year.) I had showed them my portfolio and got some feedback on it. One of these feedbacks was to make :

- more background illustrations.
- Less animals
- more human gestures/drawings/portrait work
- Creature Designs

And I agree with them! But I want to work more traditional as well.

The most laughable thing was that they called my animal anatomy studies "furries".......... stereotypes.

well Game Art does not ivolve the coding though x3 just the creative side!

and animal games are indeed rarely focus on. Feral Heart is one, but I dont concider that a real good game...

o.o wait..ohh..yes! i recall going to the Galleries sections on games, your right. That's really cool :) I'm stuck doing codings and such for a living...not too creative much /headdesk

Yeah I totally agree :D, it's only a decent game IF the right people are there..by that I mean your close friends and not random 10 yr old strangers x'D But in general Kovu did a wonderful job :)

Its cool game, definately. But the gameplay is boring as hell and its crowded with children and roleplayers its not even fun anymore . It lacks extra servers, the maps lag as crazy because of ammount of players . I rather call it a virtual chat rather than a real game.
