Your models are looking sweeter everytime i look at them. I learnt a few things from looking at your mesh. I think if you could just push those textures further you'd really do well. Dont be affraid to saturate the texture when the style calls for it too.

Time to stop being unemployed ;) Push your portfolio out to some of the local studios or something.

Yeah, getting into the games industry is tough. I spent 4 months trying to get a games job (I'm a programmer) before having to put it on hold and just go and get whatever work I could find.

A year and a half later, with a lot of good (if questionably relevant) experience under my belt, I got my current games programming job (at substantially less pay... but it's worth it).

I'm guessing it's even harder for artists (not as many other jobs you can take while you wait for the right opportunity). But after all the disappointments there is a great sense of accomplishment when you land the job.

Good luck!

Im catching up i think ive spent 2 1/2 months.

I havnt got to the stage where ill ever put my search on hold, i believe diligance and persistance to be key and its not so bad in the meantime as im able to participate (around my current dead end job :) in things such as the art comps and the indie game which will do me good in the long run for practice.

I can say without a doubt though that when i do actually land a job ill be over the moon :D

Thanx for the comments Anonymous

Nice modelling and texture work, there! Good stuff! Concept art looks great too!

Thanks Souri. Especially about the comment on the concept art as thats one of the areas i think im in need of improving on.

The textures are really great! They add so much detail. And the model is so simple! It's amazing work! I'm still trying to get down the idea that most of the details are in the texture, not the model.

Man, talking about dressing sora for war, just like gears. tetsuya nomura must be jealous of laughing his guts off.
