I have a dream of working in the game industry as a concept artist. I have trained as an industrial designer in the U.S. and I have practised industrial design for 12 years here in Athens. I am now 37 and I have decided to try and follow my dream and become a concept artist.
However, Greece does not offer anything like that, therefore, if I get an offer I will have to move away from familly and friends taking my wife with me. I was wondering if you knew anything about how concept artists are hired. Are the jobs usually temporary(on a project by project basis) or are they more full-time? If I have to move around the world every time I have to get a job it is going to be difficult..I will probably need to work for a studio on a more full-time basis. Is that scenario realistic?
I am getting my portfolio ready as we speak and I will be sending it to many studios around the world. If you want to see what my self taught work is like go to http://spill-blog.blogspot.com or go to my gallery here on CA. I am Stathis. Thanx!
