BioWare hosted its first annual Fan Art Contest on this, the last day of Comic Con. The winner, Patryk Olejniczak was hired on to be a concept artist.
That's pretty cool, thought this guy's work looked incredible the first time I saw it.
Must admit, thats a really good prize for some dedication and passion.
Those 4 the only ones hes made? That Miranda pic is incredible!
The post has been updated with that. But for ease, here you go ^_^ http://garrettartlair.blogs...
Wow, thats amazing!
holy shit, I wouldn't even know where to start for drawing something like that. Those are absolutely incredible works of art. Congrats to this guy for his passion landing him a job doing his passion, what a dream come true.
Some VERY talented people out there. Great to see he got recognized for his work. I am very envious (both of his talent and hiring to Bioware).
I always like reading about stuff like this. And boy did he deserve it, look at those pictures!
Its talent like this that pretty much makes me throw in the towel for a career in concept art.
I really wish I could do stuff like this. I really enjoy art but its so damn hard to get good at. And going into college, Im really not gonna have the time to do it.
Gotta agree, that is some amazing work. Very well deserved.
The issue is that honestly for the amount of work an artist puts in, the pay is utter crap, its a rude awakening for many people who wanted to make a career of it. I realize pay is not everything, but the industry needs to make it worthwhile.
