Hello, good people of the internet. My name is Cory Trego-Erdner, known in various art websites as Moai. I'm an art student. I already have an AA degree, but I'm still taking various figure drawing and other classes to continue my education. I've been drawing for about fifteen years (since I was six), and I've been painting digitally for about two and a half years. I have aspirations of being an illustrator and/or a concept artist. I hope to begin getting some freelance work this year.
I am a creature designer through and through. It's my passion. My brain is wired for it. I saw creature designs in trees and clouds when I was a kid, and I still see designs in various objects. I've been working seriously on my anatomy and figure drawing skills for the past year, and I'm also expanding into doing environments and artificial things, like weapons and architecture.
As far as my other interests go, I'm an avid reader of science fiction, and also read some horror, fantasy, and other fiction from time to time. I dabble in writing sometimes. I like to surf, and I play the guitar and ukulele.
I'll be uploading some of my more popular and recent-ish images in the next few posts. If you want to see my older stuff, just check out my ConceptArt.org and Deviantart gallery links off to the right.
