Erin Lamoreux - Keep on Learning!

First off let me say I'm sorry for all the time in between posts. I really don't have a good excuse for it this time; I haven't been pursuing artists as much as I could, and Wrath of the Lich King just came out, so that definitely delayed this post by a couple days. Anyway...on to what you guys actually came here for!

Erin Lamoreux. Another lifetime artist, now 23 years old and living in Austin, Texas, Erin has been drawing since before she should have been trusted with drawing tools (and the walls of her childhood home can attest to it). Even though she hasn't given up on traditional methods, her favorite medium has become digital. Using Photoshop, Artrage, Painter, 3dsMax, Maya, and others she creates wonderfully colored and atmospheric pieces. Even Erin's "speedpaints" (a few of which are linked below) come alive with great style.
"I'm inspired by many things. Nature is a big one," she says. "Ideas matter to me. If someone communicates a really awesome idea, I don't care if its roughly done." Craig Mullins, Bobby Chiu, and David Levy are some of her favorite artist just to name a few.
Erin's one goal is to keep learning. "A lot of people say 'if I could be as good as ____ I'd be happy.' I used to say that too, but the truth is when I get closer to that point, all I can see are points beyond, and that's not a bad thing! I enjoy every minute of it."

French Style - Sabrina Miramon

Being back from a long halloween weekend we now turn our attentions to Sabrina Miramon, a wonderful cg artist and colorist from Lille, France. Sabrina started drawing about six years ago when she was 20. "Surrounded by talented people during my studies, it was hard at first to realize I was not good at it," she says, "but I worked and worked and here I am."
Sabrina draws inspiration in one way or another from everything she sees without really realizing it. She uses a Wacom tablet and Photoshop to work her magic. "I'm still rather impressed by traditional methods. They don't use ctrl+z/cancel." Currently she spends most of her time working as a background artist for an animated series in France. Sabrina would like someday to land a good, creative job or work on great movie productions.
She plays way too many video games, likes chocolate, and has a bunny named Indianna.

Spotlight on Philip Myrick

In the spotlight today stands Philip Myrick, a 25 year old painter from Kennesaw, Georgia. Like so many of our featured artists, Philip can't remember a time when art was not a part of him. He grew up painting, drawing influence from family, friends, life experiences, and the world around him. Artists the likes of George Grosz, Francis Bacon, and Paul Cezanne also had a major impact. Philip's favorite media is oil on canvas using brushes, pallet knives, and "stuff I pick up off the street." He is currently working on his own tarot card series, painting both the major and minor arcana. In his open time he works with his friend, Doug Cole, on his films. Philip's has great outlook and direction, saying, "I hope to help broaden the influence of art in Atlanta and change the idea of what southern art is all about."
