Alan Blackwell Concept Artist, Transformers Battle Tactics

"I came out with about 3 finished pieces which directly led to me being picked up by DeNA Studios. My mentor took me through some homework exercises related to getting my portfolio quality kicked up a notch. We also ran through some more basic thinking behind image creating such as composition, thumbnailing etc. In the end I came out with about 3 finished pieces which directly led to me being picked up by DeNA Studios Canada late 2012 as a Junior Concept Artist. I really appreciated the time I got to work with my mentor during those sessions."
