Advice For Artists

Art is one of the gaping holes in my knowledge of the game industry, so when students come to me asking about art, I usually throw up my hands and say, “I don’t know.”

Today, a coworker of mine pointed me to a forum thread she posted with a ton of advice for aspiring game artists. It’s great stuff, not just her initial posts but the whole discussion. So, my loyal artist readers, go forth and be educated! I know I learned a lot reading it over.

My suggestion: don’t crap out. >:(

My suggestion, if you’re interested in freelancing you should consider working for an outsourcing firm. I’d prefer to work with a small 5-20 person firm than an army like Vykarian, but thats the scale of budget and production I’m working at right now. If you work for a firm you’re downtime is more consistently distributed and producers are more likely to want to work with you because the crapping out risks are lower.
