Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.

PAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for CryamoreYOYOPAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for Cryamore6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I rise from my grave to say that I'm looking for one or two reliable, very brave souls who are not scared of drawing rocks and boulders (and other cool setpiece'y environments).
As you may know, I'm currently (yes, still…) working on Cryamore and we're about to have another boost in our productivity but this time I'm looking to contract out 1 or 2 artists to directly assist me with background work and environments.
At this moment, this mainly consists of inking rough layouts of areas (in a very moderate resolution; we draw assets near-native of the game's resolution) within the defined style. (If you are comfortable with color and think you can render in the appropriate style, then that's a plus. I'll think about giving out assignments like that but only if I can see that you're capable of it in your work, cuz I'm a stickler for keeping things within the style of the game… hence the reason why I've been doing every environment myself

Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio TipsEven if you’re just starting out to be a revision artist, the most important items in your portfolio will be your storyboard samples. The main reason why is that the studio will be looking for someone that they know can eventually grow and develop into the role of a full storyboard artist. The only way you can demonstrate that is to have a few samples in your portfolio.Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A storyboard revisionist is much more than a cleanup artist; they have to know how storyboards and film language work — a director might ask a revisionist to “restage this sequence and make it work.” A revisionist has to be well-versed in the art of storyboarding to interpret that kind of vague and common request (I ask my crew to do this sort of thing all the time).
Many artists that are just starting out don’t have any storyboard samples, but there is a surefire remedy for that: Go make some
You can create your own storyboard samples based on stories you come up with, or “borr
