Anyway, my internship ended today which was really sad (at least for me haha) I wish i could stay there longer it was such a great work environment. This is the last piece i did while i was there. I mostly did super rough concepts and in-house asset work which i’ll show a bit of later, so it was nice to do something illustrative for my final hurrah as it were.
The whole process took 2 days* and the final piece took just over one of those days (*8 hour working days). The whole piece was a bit of an amalgamation of all the stuff i learnt, so the development pipeline as well as a lot of technical and theoretical art stuff i picked up from Chris Green, their in-house illustrator (who is so nice, and skilled and just was so ready to teach me stuff which i am so appreciative for). Basically the subject matter tied into some other concept stuff i was working on (i did lots of concepts for the tank robot which i’ll post later) and the rabbits are the 'Double Happy' rabbits. The process i went through was sketching the thumbnails until lunch and presenting them to Justin (Producer/manager). I then fleshed out colour thumbnails for the three i liked best until maybe 3pm-ish that day. Justin chose the final colour thumbnail he liked to take to a finished piece and then i polished it up for the rest of that day and today.
The development process is something i’m really happy i learnt and went through as i think it will help a lot in my freelance work in the future. Definately one of the biggest things i got out of the internship was becoming confident in pitching ideas and working for ‘clients’.
I want to write more but i have an essay that is for actual grades to finish so i will write more about this stuff later :)
