This took me forever. I'm not particularly fond of sci-fi design but this is going to be a great exercise when it's all said and done. I need to choose one of these and then make a few variations of it and then pick one and finalize it. Not completely sold that some of these can be sci-fi soldiers at all. Lol. Hrrrm.... Lets see.

ALLODS contacted me and told me i misunderstood the directions. Apparently i wasn't suppose 'simply' illustrate the dresses from the references onto the 3d render they gave me but i was suppose to design my own versions... FAIL. I'm not sure if they already chose someone for the job, but I think personally, I will redue the test and finish it for my sake. It is a great exercise and it would be great for my illustration portfolio.
I decided to take up their other test which is a Sci-Fi soldier test. I blotched in some interesting shapes and started sketching in the designs. This might actually take some time... But hopefully when it's all said and done, I'll have a really interesting character.

Boars,Gore and Swords. They 2 comedians who initially started talking about the show but started to read and comment on the books right after. And everything they say is hilarious and golden. I decided to use their banner on their podcast facebook page as a reference and illustrate them.
They really loved it and made it their banner! Lol. Boars,Gore, And Swords Podcast Facebook Page If you guys are a fan of Game of Thrones and the book series, I highly recommend listen to their podcast. They can be found on iTunes as well.
I love the show, don't get me wrong, but the problem with it is, when you're reading, you see the characters in your mind, but since the show started, I've been replacing those images in my head with how they look on the show. Still looking forward to Beric Dondarian though. They showed him in season 1 but I'm sure they will recast him. I just hope they don't downplay his flaming sword like they did Stannis's flaming sword.

Anywho, during my week of applying for jobs, I realized something. After working at a casual gaming company with a small art department, I knew they required us to do a lot there. I did everything from 3D/2D/Animation/HUD/Illustrations/Texturing/Particle Effects/Rigging/etc. Whatever needed to be done, I did it if I could. In that environment it was good to know all those skills. The problem lies in applying for studios that require expertise in specific areas. In my latest Demo Reel I compiled most of the work I've done into what I think is a really great generalist reel. The problem is, most positions are calling for either 3D or 2D. I can't be both.
I feel like I have to choose between the 2. 2D or 3D, that is the question. I love both so much but until i can settle on 1, I don't feel like i can excel to my potential in either...
Either way, I have to start somewhere and this month isn't over yet. My search continues. Job hunting is fun and disappointing at the same time. Fun in that I'm coming across all these awesome companies and sometimes I apply to them, but most times there's no positions open.
I'm not losing hope. This is going to be the epic year of happenings and it all starts this week.
