Introduce Yourself


(Chris Anderson) #61

Hello
Im Chris. I’m finally able to afford this course “woohoo”. That being said, I’m currently a self-taught/student looking to get in the art world. I’m skeptical about going to a big university just learn art and really not 100% sure if its the right decision or not. Therefore, I’m looking to grow with the community and show off my stuff with LearnSquared.

Thanks to all the Learn Squared team for their continued efforts to make this such a killer learning platform!!

Hope everyone enjoys their courses and has fun making dope work :slightly_smiling:

Hey Calina!! Go Teddy bears!! :wink:


(Guido Salto) #77

the game still hans’t come out unfortunately, i donno why, anyway it was meant to be a PC game with a port on PS4 later, but i still haven’t heard any news from the company about it’s release


(Lorne Hawke) #78

OMG! You worked on UI for Far Cry 2!?! I love that game and the UI was one of my favourite parts! I really liked how minimal it was. The map was brilliant, I had so many tense moments hiding in the bushes with the map trying to plan an escape. The title screen gives me chills just thinking about it, it captures the mood of the game so perfectly and blends so well with the music (how good is that music BTW)! I can’t believe the odds that I’d see you on Lean Squared.


(Lorne Hawke) #79

Hello. My name is Lorne Hawke. I’m from Christchurch, New Zealand.
I’m working towards becoming a concept artist. I’ve been practicing and improving my skills for the last few years and I’m starting to get to a stage where I’m happy with how my work looks and I would feel confident applying to jobs. I joined Learn Squared for Maciej’s character design tutorial and I’m glad I did, the tutorial is really great and the community here is really cool.
My work is on my Artstation page: https://www.artstation.com/artist/cosmic-hawke . I’m hoping to add some to it soon.


(Benoit Perreault) #80

hey,
Glad you liked it. FarCry 2 was a blast to work on. I might still have the old sketch book that I scanned for the menus and maps somewhere. The “diegetic” style of UI was quite challenging, but really rewarding.
I’m taking the class “Design for Production: Workflow” by Michael Rigley. I want to start using C4D more and see how he approches the briefs and comes up with those great style frames. So far I like it!


(Lorne Hawke) #81

That’d be really cool to see some of the work in progress stuff for the menus. I imagine it would have been hard to make the maps it was really unique, I can’t think of a game before it that does the same thing. You guys also went all out on it, like there were so many small touches that made it awesome like putting the GPS on the dash of the car.
Good luck with your course, it looks really cool.
