I recently got promoted to Senior Character Artist and I had some questions about what that actually entails.
Our company structure currently is rather flat and I am the only one creating Characters as of now , I think we'd be hiring in the future , but for now I am the sole character dude.
I asked some friends what it actually means and what the responsibilities entail of being a Senior. As much as it excites me that I got promoted , I at the same time feel that this has put some pressure on me to perform even more and deliver even better quality ( Because I can't stop comparing myself to others on Artstation who are Seniors at larger Studios )
So from what I was told , it's more or less a confirmation from the company itself that the work you are doing is good and you will have some more non-art responsibilities including management or preparation for xyz.
Does anyone else have some more stuff to add? I get the impression that it's just not that simple, or perhaps I have overthinking it.
Either way it has lit a fire under my ass and rekindled my motivation
PS: I have checked out job ads where seniors are hired but the majority of them just list the skillset that one should have which mostly doesn't differ too much from a normal character job ad.
