job oppurtunities in character design are very simular to that of storyboarding. character design is needed in industries such as film, tv and video games. personally i would like to pursue the video game industry for a career in character design, as the video games nature and detachment from reailty in certain genres can allow for massive exploration for an illustrators imagination.

the following show video game studios i would like to contact in regards to work within the character design field and whose works i’ am a fan of.

RockStar Studios- studios in UK and US

UbiSoft- studios in France and Canada

lionhead studios- UK based Studio

from an early age i have been creating characters for stories i have imagine. and after graduation its a career path i would love to pursue. i love the fact that the possiblities in character design can be endless, as its used in so many genres theres no limit to what you can design. its a great oppurinties for a designer/illustrators imagination truly run wild.

from looking into what is needed from a storyboard artsit ive realised what i have to do for myself to better my chances of getting work in the storyboarding industry. to better my chances i aim to better my presentation and communication skills, learn to keep people informed on whats happening. and work on my clarity of speech so not to confuse myself and others when presenting work.

in terms of my drawing skills i feel that i need to work on scences and settings, how to convingly place characters into settings and situations. if it dosent show clearly in the storyboard whats meant to be happening then the dierector isnt going to be convinced.

ways i can over come these problems are to go to life drawings classes, draw people in public places to learn how we interact with surroundings.

speak in public or in big crowds, i feel this would help me in talking clearly to large numbers of people for presentating.

and set myself deadlines and stick to them, learn to be more self dispilinced.
