My name is Adrian and I'm moving to London in 1 week. I was pretty sure that after my last few months I'll be able to get my first job in the game industry in London. I've spend almost a year on a professional game creation course lead by experts from the industry like CD PROJECT RED (The Witcher, Cyberpunk 2077) or 11bit studios (Frostpunk, This War of Mine) creating 3 games and learning about everything. After sending many personalized applications to London game studios that I wanted to work in, I hit the ground getting no response and I started to have doubts... I wanted to find a job as generalist, but maybe the problem is that you need to specify even at this stage? Go deep into characters or environment?
Another thing is software. I'm using Blender/Substance Painter/Zbrush and learning Maya (seems UK/London companies are using this one as the main software). Maybe "learning" stage is not enough for it...
I'd appreciate if you guys would give me an honest and harsh opinion on what you think about it and my portfolio. Is it enough to work as professional yet or still needs a lot of work? What would you change? What piece should I remove/improve? Were you in the same place? How did you overcome it?http://www.artstation.com/adrianzaplata
Thank you a lot for your time and I'm looking forward to help you too!
