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."
