Brock has been in the industry for 10 years and is currently a Concept Artist and Illustrator at We’re 5 Games. He has held several positions within the game development pipeline giving him an interesting bag of tools to pull from. He hopes to pass along as much knowledge of industry standards, general tips, and fun tricks as he can during the mentorship.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR TOOLS
Basic knowledge of Photoshop (or equivalent digital art program).
Knowledge of 3D programs is a bonus.
Must have a portfolio to review and add upon.
MENTORSHIP “TIME LIMITS”
3 – 6 months with milestones, no limits on communication between meetings.
TYPE OF MENTORSHIP
Interaction will mostly be over email and video chat. Brock’s goal is for you to make a visible upgrade to your portfolio alongside gained industry knowledge that can give you a running start on your career.
Brock’s art leans more towards stylized work. If you are looking to improve at hyperreal work, he can point you in a helpful direction, but probably won’t be able to help you himself.
