I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
Artists! You have a chance to design Ubisoft’s 2015 holiday cards and you can win some really cool prizes! Deadline is November 15th!
Christmas is coming and Ubisoft partnered with Punkpost for a new way to send holiday greetings. With the Punkpost app all you have to do is type the message you want to send, select your card and they will handwrite your wish and mail your card anywhere in the world with a functional postal system of course. In terms of the substance of the card, this is where you, the artist comes in. You have until November 15th to submit your art for a chance to have it become one of seven official Ubisoft holiday cards. Here is what they are looking for:
- Something festive and Ubisoft inspired
- Landscape format
- Something that will fit 4.5” x 5.5“
- Maximum 2 colors + white space
The reason for the two-colors, as complicated as it can be, is because Ubisoft is using an old but high-quality letterpress from the 1800s to transform your art into actual plates, so there is no digital printing involved. If you happen to be one of the seven artists who win, there is a prize package that includes a game console (Xbox One, PS4, or Wii U) and four Ubisoft games of your choice. Cool right? Winners will be notified by the email they used to sign-up. Good luck artists… here is a motivational quote from hockey player and NHL Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” So what are you waiting for?
