Ello, I'm Piper Thibodeau
I suck at these, ughhhh. Anyways, hi. I'm a creature artist. I like painting concept art around the subject and wish to work as a concept artist when I'm through with school.
At the moment, I'm attending my third and final year of Dawson College for 3D Animation. Because of the heavy workload, I can't really reply back to a lot of comments and stuff --but I certainly read them all

What programs/tools do you use?
I’m primarily a digital painter, though I use traditional mediums from time to time, such as watercolors and oils. As for tools and software, I have a small Intuos5 and use the following programs:
For painting: Photoshop CS5.
For lineart: Paint Tool SAI
For animation: Maya, Flash, Premiere
For 3D Modelling: Zbrush, 3DS Max
Do you take commissions?
Yes and no.
I'm open for job opportunities, both freelance and contractual, and also one-shot works such as illustrations for advertisements.
But in the DeviantART sense of commissions, where you paint someone's OC or something, no thank you! Nope. I'm not fond of the whole DA economy mess and I'm not going to contribute to it. Lol
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you take requests?
Free art screws up the industry.
Do you do trades?
Only with friends.
Can I use your art for *insert blank*?
Ask me first.
I'm picky. Usually if you credit me, I'll probably be alright with it. But you're NOT allowed to alter any of my stuff for use as banners and the like. If it's something like an overlay for a youtube video, so long as there's a accreditation, I'm cool with it --but ask first.
Can you make a tutorial?
What are dailies?
Dailies are timed paintings that must be submitted before 12 AM every single day. It’s an idea that I got from my friend and fellow artist, Naomi Savoie.
The painting process itself is timed and rounded to the nearest five, but the quick compositional sketch is often not included unless there’s substantial detail.
Do you go to art school? Where?
I go to school for 3D Animation and CGI at Dawson College, and I’m in my second year.
