Travis H: Sketchbook

Just figured I’d make a thread for personal work, as I’m slowly finding old stuff that people might find interesting but isn’t really demo reel worthy.

First post:

From Other Suns

Remnant: From the Ashes

Darksiders 3

Darksiders: Genesis (caution, has music. Check your headphones)

Personal project making a dungeon crawler style loot chest. Gotta kill all the baddies around before the poisonous AoE will clear.

I love it man, maybe you can put a little offset on the light aura’s that appear out of the cracks. To break the lineair movement maybe?

But apart from that I really dig it man! well done :slight_smile:

Ooo that’s a good idea, thanks for the feedback. Maybe some parallax on them too might help

Maybe also a nice scrolling texture over it the convey the feeling of magic flowing through it :slight_smile:

I’m curious at what kind of studios you applied to back in 2015 :slight_smile: Was it alot of studios or was the first one immediately the right one?

There were almost no openings back then, least of all for Jr positions. I applied for the Heroes of the Storm team (shot myself in the foot on the art test), and a few others, but the number was very small. I didn’t attempt to apply for mid level positions. I did end up in an interview for one that I didn’t realize was mid level, and not only embarrassed myself, but I think I made the friend who got me in the door look bad :’( and I feel bad about that.

Only way I found my first job was a random retweet on twitter for the opening at Gunfire Games for a junior fx artist. That’s why I retweet and post openings as often as I find them, because a random retweet or post in facebook group or the discord channel could mean a job for someone they might not have heard about otherwise.
