I'm not even remotely professionally experienced and I'm also self taught, and so my work will likely continue to have that touch of amateurishness. You know? Something I think about a lot though is that if I was already super talented and everything I did was exactly how I want it to turn out, then that means I have nothing left to learn. I don't want that. I would get bored. What I'm doing now is challenging and unfamiliar.
So, I've been playing this little game called No Man's Sky...
I never thought I would ever see the day where I can write that and mean it. Even though I've had it in my hands for the past few days, I still can't believe it. Every time I jump in my starship and set off into the stars to see what I might find... it's just a crazy addictive experience. It's something I've really wanted to play ever since I was a kid.
I've been taking a whole lot of screenshots and sharing them with the world. Check me out on Twitter (@Zemus101) because I've been making little animated shorts when I do or find something interesting in the game.
I'm also finding a tonne of inspiration in the game in the form of planets, outer space scenes, starships, and aliens. In fact, the creature I drew above was inspired by one of the main alien species in the game; The Gek. Although looking at him now he's clearly his own thing, but a bit of the face and arms are similar.
