My plans after university are to hopefully start off at a UK company as a junior environmental, I have a strong interest in this subject and find it really entertaining creating the worlds the player will be exploring.
After working after i while i would like become a senior environmental artist and hopefully maybe even become a art director after a few years. I wish to work for irrational studios (well know for the bioshock series) as I find the art style and worlds that they create very unique and very interesting and think that the art style is nice chance to get creative while staying working for a large company.
Their are a few people in this field that i wish to aspire to such as Viktor Antanov, Scott Sinclair and Jamie McNutty.
Each of the areas discussed will have blog posts that go into more details following this.
