FYI My longest post on PC ever. Sorry in advance - OP I hope there's something useful in this for you. I'm back in your thread and giving you my morning before breakfast, is my way of saying ' I care '.
Usually between 1 - 5 NEW students, per day come to me for random pieces of advice. Some from here @ PC , some from Deviant Art - Mostly from Deviant art.
It's always the same questions maybe worded slightly differently and I do my best to answer every single time, every single message. Sometimes I get behind and have to catch up at the end of the week but I do my best.
As well as those, I did 2 10+ question interviews last week, on my time, for students who were still in school. For school essays, papers, projects etc that contain the same questions they always do.
I'm exposed to 'all this' *makes a big circle shape with hands* on a fairly constant basis. Everything that encompasses 'young artists trying to find their way in this scary fucking
Maddy's Tips: Building a Strong PortfolioAfter receiving a few emails recently asking for portfolio feedback and general advice, I decided to write up a small list of tips that can help a student or graduate create a portfolio that game studios will want to look at.Maddy's Tips: Building a Strong Portfolio1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Degree ≠ Job. A lot of studios don't look in a resume for where you went to school. The first thing they're interested in the quality of work in your portfolio. If you have the skills, then you probably have the job!
Do more than homework. Lot's of college students get turned down by studios because they give them a portfolio that only has school work in it. Studios look for people that create more outside of class. It can range anywhere from fan art to designing your own characters.
Get on forums. Stay active on the game art forums like Polycount or others like CGHub and GameArtisans. Post your work and speak with other aspiring game artists and professionals all over those sites. Lots of studios
Nyotalia England!Well, as it turns out, Bunny Pon has decided to distribute. However, she says the models are still being tested. She has posted a download link on bowlroll but has not given the password. It is likely that the password will be given out along with the model distribution video which will be made in the near future, so we'll have to be patient. I will, however, update this journal with the pass or link to the password when she gives it out, so check back often.Nyotalia England!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Unpaid Work.... and how it affects artists So, not too long ago, some one I once worked with for a game studio approached me, and asked me for some concept art work. To my surprise, this person, who has worked closely with artists in the game industry had actually come to me requesting free art. This was a saddening shock. I am used to being asked for free work, as many artists are, but this hit me hard. That some, who one knows what we do, is willing to try to take advantage of us, of me.Unpaid Work.... and how it affects artists2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is what you are telling a professional artist when you ask for free work. You are not only telling them that their skills are worthless. You are telling them that THEY are worthless. Not only is being repeatedly bombarded with free work requests, disheartening, it is depressing.
I'm writing this merely as an attempt to raise awareness. Please, respect your fellow artist. If you see some one's work, and you are in awe of what they do, do not make your first thought, "How can I get some free or cheap work off
