Hi there! I'm Anya.
I am happy to run through your portfolio and talk through your strengths and weaknesses, and what we can do to address these in mind of creating a strong portfolio for interviews. I am also pleased to review individual pieces that you may have created in-engine or as a 2D concept.
The session is a time for you to learn whatever you have on your mind with regards to concept creation for 3D art, and 3D art creation such as colour, composition, and lighting. We can also discuss technical limitations when working in 3D or technical considerations when creating concept art for games. Please come to the session with some idea of what you wish to address with me. We can talk about whatever you like!
I am a freelance concept and environment artist for games based in the UK. I began my career at Creative Assembly on the Total War series before taking on some freelance work and joining Rare Ltd on Everwild. Since then, I have gone freelance full-time and work for clients such as Gameloft, Supercell, Amazon Games, and more, doing a mixture of 3D and 2D work. I have taught at multiple UK universities and online institutions, whilst also offering personal online mentorships more recently. I want these sessions to be a forum for you to ask questions and find guidance through the complex world of art creation.
I have experience teaching at many establishments across the UK, such as DeMontfort University, Teesside University, and Escape Studios, in addition to creating my own Youtube tutorials.
I have also done demonstrations for events such as Industry Workshops in London, and have published a workshop in ImagineFX.
I offer an easy-going, clear, and concise style of teaching which I can easily adapt to your personal learning style and speed.
You will come away from the session with an agreed set of actions to take, which will take you a step forwards on your journey to creating great art and finding your niche.
Mentorship sessions take place on Discord with screen-share.
