MariusBota's Profile Picture
Marius Bota
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
My name is Marius Bota, I am a freelancer illustrator/ concept artist.

2004- 2008 - Finished Art High- School where i did 2 years of traditional sculpting and 2 years of artistic graphics/ compositional graphics and in the mean time studied traditional painting along side.

2008- 2009 - Went to sculpture at West University Timisoara and after one year and a half decided to let it go and proceeded to being a freelance Illustrator.

2009- Now - Working hard to get as good as I can, started to work as a professional illustrator in the mean time.

Some of the past employers:

Vivid Digital Studios - worked as a Illustrator / Concept Artist.
Darkeden - worked as a Character and Prop Designer.
Sea Wings - worked as a Character Designer.
Stamp Art Fever - Illustrator.

Feel free to contact me, I am available for freelance work.
So I don't like to make this kind of post usually but this bothered me for a long time now and I feel the need to speak my mind on this.

Many professional artists feel the need to instruct the lesser ones on different matters and tell them how they think art should be done or though about without taking into consideration the art they themselves produce. Its this trend that if they have a following they can say anything because they know that 99% of the times no one will say shit because of the army of art police that surrounds them.

I appreciate the way they got to that position cause its mostly because of the art they did but that doesn't mean they are excluded from the very topic they cover. They say don't to X thing but that X thing is found in the work they do.

Think a bit before you share these long, elaborate, well written blog posts that are supposed to help the upcoming young artist cause they may not just learn how to be a better artist but they will also learn that its not that bad to be an hypocrite.

You don't need to be a good artist to be able to critic something and if you are a good artist that doesn't mean you are a good critic.
