Disney Infinity Frost Giant by Artsammich
Disney Infinity Frost Giant
I posted a bunch of frost giant designs I did for Disney Infinity on my blog. This is my favorite of the bunch.

Hey everyone, I always feel strange putting this sort of thing in my journal, but I don't know where else to go.
There's some awesome news: Schoolism is trying to move to an inexpensive subscription service for the self-taught classes. There's a kickstarter telling more about it (and giving you a chance to sign up for a subscription) here: 
www.kickstarter.com/projects/b…

In order to help spread the word, I'm going to give away one of the spots in my full critiqued classes for free. They normally cost $1000, so if you've been wanting to take a critiqued class but haven't had the money, here's your chance. Signing up to win is simple: go HERE and share and like the post. That's it! I'll pick a winner out of the list facebook generates of shares/likes.

Hey Sam, did you design the Disney Infinity characters? Because the shapes and everything look a bit like your handwriting to me! I got me a Venom today as an action figure. It was actually meant to be a Christmas present, but I thought  friends come and go but you will be here for yourself.. haha XD 

have a great Christmas time and see you around!

ps.: I am definitely going to do your schoolism course next time, one of my friends does it and I really enjoy watching how his submissions improve! :beer:

I was on the concept team for Infinity, and I helped develop the style. It was a great team and they deserve most of the credit. But yes, I did work on them. Thank you, I hope you're able to take the class!

Hey there, I just wanted to say your work is truly terrific! And also ask you, are you able to earn a living with your art? I am a young (19 yrs) art student whose dream it is to eventually become a professional self-sustainable artist. But even though my friends tell me my work is good (it's not good enough!), I have no idea how to attract buyers when I start to feel more confident about the quality of my work. Do you have any tips??

Yes, many people make a good living with art. I am currently working for a university (BYU) as an animation professor, but I was working for Disney for 10 years before that. And even with my current job, I'm constantly getting contacted for freelance work---I have to turn a lot of it down because I don't have enough time, but I could probably make a living doing just that if I wanted to take that path.

But you don't make lots of money just from being a good artist. You make good money from being an artist that knows how to meet the demands of a client and design things in a way that finds/satisfies an audience. Some people figure out naturally how to to this, and for others it takes a bit of training and experience to learn.

I don't know anything about doing my own art and finding buyers for it, that is a completely different thing that very few artists are able to make money at.
