Blizzard Internship

So I've been ridiculously stressed out over the past month trying to get a halfway decent portfolio together for Blizzard. It's been my dream since I was like 12 to work for Blizzard. At least half of what I know as an artist has come from watching those guys draw and having the chance to actually work with them is an opportunity I cannot pass up, no matter how much of a long shot it is for me to actually beat out all the other people who are going to be applying for the internship.

School's been keeping me so busy that I haven't been able to really do much of the old stuff I used to love and despite all the stress it's been really fun being able to go back to that. The real problem right now is that all my stuff is mostly line and very little painting. I was hoping to get a couple different paintings done by the end of the month but I'm still learning so much from each painting I do that I'm still only halfway done with the first done. It's turning out pretty nicely but it would have been nice to have a couple more by now. I'll post it when I'm done.

Anyway, here are a couple of the drawings I did that are probably going to make it into the Blizzard portfolio.

Sup Dude, you hear back from them yet? Definetly the best place you could possibly go :)

Yeah I just heard back from them and I didn't make it in. Ah well, just means I have some more work to do.

Hey dude valiant effort! I assume what you posted was just a fraction of what you sent them. You're off to a good start though. Break a leg!

Good job on those characters. Keep them coming and don't give up! If you wanna make it into Blizzard, I guess you'll just have to keep applying for the position year after year.

Strength and Honor!

Unfortunately for now Blizzard is on hold. I have an internship in Seattle modeling for Zombie Studios. The team is small and I am getting a TON of invaluable experience so for now I wanna stick around here. That's not to say that I've given up on Blizzard forever. Just gonna sit tight for a while and enjoy what I've got with some pretty cool people here at Zombie Studios
