Still Life  Red and goat  FINAL with border by Irina-Ari

Artist's Notes:

Still life painted digitally from observation. Was playing around with this one for awhile, and was going to make it more detailed, but I decided that I prefer how it looks when painterly, undefined areas are combined with more polished, finished surfaces. Gonna keep doing still lives, but will try to keep em quick and dirty-- it's more fun that way!

Hi, I'm Irina Ari! I'm an aspiring artist in the field of concept art and illustration for the video game industry. Ultimately, I would love to be an art director and independent game developer.

I received my BFA in Visual Arts from Mason Gross School of Arts (Rutgers University) earlier in 2014. There I focused for my first three years on traditional painting and drawing, but as classes became available I took an interest in film, production and direction, costume design, animation and 3D. So far I've produced and received awards for one short film and a co-produced animation short.

I can admit, I may not currently have as much experience with concept art and illustration as others who went to schools with a focus in it, but I value the unique experience I already have, and am rigorously practicing and building a whole new portfolio.

My video game soul mates are Fumito Ueda's "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus," and if I had to pick one artist who inspires and motivates me to do more, it's Noah Bradley.

Ooooh~,  your art is SO pretty (and it resembles you; I don't know if that sounds strange, but it's a bit hard to fully explain), and of course it would be! You made sure you studied your craft to a T! Thank you so much for your favorites on much more underwhelming pieces! :icontinoplz: If I could color your way...:iconmiseryplz:
