Been working hard all week at my new job, so didn’t have that much time for drawing. Yeah, I got a new job as a game designer/associate producer at Tarsier Studios here in Malmö, since three weeks. Tarsier is perhaps best know for their work with Little Big Planet Vita and LBP DLC. It’s awesome there and I’m very excited about it. Gonna tell you more when I got the time for it. I even work with some old Junebudders and a bunch of new, super talented people! Very excited for the future right now. Things feel bright again after some uncertainty and many sleepless nights where I was laying in my bed, looking at the starts and trying to figure out the future. I’m feeling hopeful!
So I went to this week’s croquis lesson, and it was very nice. I’ve noticed the first couple of drawings always look like shit, but when you are warmed-up things start to look a lot better. Like sports. You need to warm-up if you intend to deliver something cool. Croquis really puts me into flow mode, time just flies by when I’m there! Wish I could attend more than one class every week.
I decided to participate in the current round of “character of the week” at CA. The theme is the one I described in my last post, a D&D character; “The Hag Countess”. Deadline is next weekend. Let’s see if I can make it. Already poured like 5 hours into it and learned plenty about how to organize your work process.
