After a 6 month hold as requested by Activision, I can share my art test I completed for Raven Software for the Senior Concept Artist position.
I've been working at Raven Software for 3 months now and it's been amazing!
I was provided with several choices of what to start from and what to concept. I chose an arctic fishing village with some military dudes coming to visit an old double agent (made the story up myself, haha).
Gathered refs and did thumb sketches in Photoshop, then did a 3D blockout in Maya and Octane, took some renders, compiled them back into Photoshop and then painted over it!
Total 36 hours.

Renders kicked out of Maya with Octane Render. I compile these together when doing my paintover.
