Great site and great artwork you have here.
My 'nick' is VoidBroid.
I work for a Games company in the UK. I obtained my degree in Illustration just over a year ago. After which I came to my current company.
Actually I'm desperate for some advice from somebody more experienced than myself who may have been in a similar situation as me.
The score is:
I am classed as a 'Artist' but the work I have to do is just plain chore. And I face doing this kind of work for the next year. this will mean that I will have learned nothing for two years.
Doing this work has sucked any passion, love, dedication, ambition and self-belief I had out of me. I came here all starry eyed. Now the bubble has most definatley burst and the games industry seems ruthless and cold to me. There is no spirit and it's every man for themselves. No glamour, no appreciation. I feel like a robot.
I need advice on what to do. I have to decide whether or not to leave my current job and go somewhere I'll be appreciated, stay here, or save up and go study another subject completley.
At my lowest points I think of giving up art altogether. These days I still have the will to create, but I cannot seem to face doing any art.
I hope somebody has been here, and fought back. I hope someone can give me some form of advice. It would be greatley appreciated.
