Before advances in computer technology offered illustrators a functional alternative in the visual arts, Anthony Marriott was happily sitting in a corner somewhere mastering the fundamentals. Studying key illustration skills such as anatomy, life drawing, perspective, light & shade, color theory and design layout with the eternal tools of an illustrator: ink, pens, pencils, paint, brushes and coffee.
After being thrown headlong into Computer Generated Imagery he developed an aptitude for the silicon based tool, gravitating toward Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator with a passion. Anthony also acquired substantial training in Sculpting, 2D animation, Special FX and Film Making.
