Landscapes are not enough. How to get people's attention
Recently I've also been drawing landscapes appearing in my dreams. I don't know why, but there were some pretty awesome ones, and I was thinking about making it a series for a long time.
However, it seems like people are not interested in landscape illustration. The key is to use a single character and a title to give the series consistency. For the series about my dreams, I used a girl with ram horns. Maybe a tad too easy? (laughs)
The other day I saw "Your Name" by Makoto Shinkai, and after a while I was moved by his incredible talent. To be honest, I was moved and frustrated at the same time. I've always admired his work, and when I found out he produced "Voices of a Distant Star" when he was only 29 I was shocked, to say the least. I'm 26 right now, and if I think I've only have three years left until I turn 29... Actually, there are many things I could do in three years. That's one of my goals, and the reason why I'm mainly doing concept art right now.
I'd love to be able to have something to be proud of, three years from now.
