Phoenix-06 is my favorite Luminarium member. <3 It is always a treat to go through his gallery and just to marvel at all the things he can do. I hope he can land a major contract somewhere like with, like you said, the Halo franchise with 343 Studios or better yet. Be on the front lines as head designer for the next blockbuster franchise. Because there is always a huge Sci-Fi video game series at the front of the industry Halo, Gears, Mass Effect and so on. And I am excited to see Adam's work in big settings such to rival the great games of this decade.
Some parts of his artistic...err, "journey" sound a bit like mine finding an interest in art from practically a baby and space coming in not too much later, it's inevitable that the two will collide and make something awesome one day and I agree that having done traditional art is a good foundation for a good digital artist too! I don't think enouhg people get that
