I am a game developer and artist. http://www.marcusmeler.com/environment.html
Recently went to a review at a studio and was told I was lacking. I felt really down about it and felt like giving up (I know, the worst thing one can do). I can take critique and have a thick skin, but the reviewer did not really look at my portfolio as far as I could tell. They were no real help in telling me how I could improve (which is why I am here). I am but a lowly peasant, but I am hungry, and wanting to prove myself and start my career in the game industry. Was considering focusing on design and shifting away from art after the experience I had.
Anyway, I am looking for some more positive feedback and suggestions on what I could do to really beef myself up. I want to get back at the artist who roasted me, prove my worth, but I know I have a ways to go. Any suggestions on what I should make next? What am I worst at? Where am I strongest? How can I improve? I want to start to specialize and find my niche. I am not really sure where I fit in the machine which is why I am considering going full game design. Any and all help/advice I will take.
Thank you for your time
