Hey, I was just wondering if you guys could help me and a friend out in regards to salaries for beginner concept artists. We have been browsing arty job listings in various companies for a laugh, and to see what skills we need to get them(a lot more than we have now) But I see jobs advertised in the US with $45,000 as a starting figure, and I see what appears to be the same job with the same requirements here in the UK for £16,000, which is $25,400. And lots of them seem to be in London, which I hear is nearly as expensive to live in as NYC. We were just wondering if there actually is some crazy discrepancy between the UK and USA salaries? And if, so how hard it would be to get a job in a games company in the States, pretty impossible right? Obviously not right now, but if we got really, really good?
Thanks for any help, we are depressing ourselves a little. Moneys not everything, but it sure helps when you want food. Or a roof.
EDIT, I think this is the wrong section. Oh shi-
