30 Character Challenger: Shayna Hall

| October 25, 2010 | 4 Comments

Hey there, Shayna here… I’m a new participant to the 30 Characters Challenge this year!

I’m originally from Lubbock, Texas; now I live in Montreal, Quebec. That’s in Canada! I attended Savannah College of Art and Design as a Sequential Art major, and am now currently padding my portfolio to work here at one of the game companies in Montreal.

As far as publishing and achievements go, I feel a little underwhelming compared to some of the other participants: I’ve not yet started or published a graphic novel or webcomic.  I do have a strong sequential style however, and telling a story with an image is an integral part to my creative process.

I took on this challenge to build up my speed and skills as a digital painter, and to start a looser painterly style.  I typically nitpick over every little detail in my drawings/paintings, and this slows my progress towards that deadline down to a crawl…ugh.  I’m typing slower now even as I think about it. I would also like to work on male characters (as I create predominately female characters.)   So expect to see some randomness from me, as these characters are not necessarily for one project, but for several projects to come together in my portfolio as a whole!

    Your work looks really nice. Looking forward to seeing what you pull out of your hat over the 30 days.

    The fact you are a Canuck now, and went to SCAD are also pluses. (Lived outside of Ottawa for 4 years and have relatives in Georgia)
