Artistry is a skill that, for most is inherent. While many require formal training to hone those skills, others are self-taught and can accomplish great things. Noble Valerian is one of those self-taught artists with a tremendous amount of skill. Picking up the skill while helping a friend, he found he had a knack for it and continued to pursue it. Today, he lives in the Tampa area and is responsible for graphics including the new branding for this year's Pinellas Comic and Maker Con.
In addition to 2D graphics, he has also been working on an indie game, which he hopes to release before the end of the year. The game is based on research conducted from potential players via survey. As it is his first game, he plans to release it for free, with the hopes of getting more feedback from players. To follow along with his journey, check out his blog.
