Some days at work are crazy busy, tonight thankfully was not one of those nights.
I’ve been painting Kiki at work during my breaks!
here are some silly sketches i did today after retail, a loose sketch which turned into my skyrim wood elf, and my witchsona which is basically a super cute outfit i’ve been meaning to wear together.
Sketching more lady knights! Trying new shapes and studying different types of armor.
While I was in NYC i saw HTTDY2, and i was not prepared for all the feels i would feel. And I totally fell in love with Ruffnut, and got a mystery vinyl figure of a Zippleback. And total headcannon that Ruffnut babytalks to Barf which makes Belch jealous…
So I tried to paint with acrylics and promptly remembered all the reasons we don’t get along.
Watching Robin Hood: Men in Tights! I am a total sucker for everything Robin Hood, especially this movie. Gonna keep drawing more of em, like Ah-chu and King Richard, and Prince John next time I watch it!
Anonymous said: Thank you so much for taking the time to reply! I really appreciate this. I'd like to be a production artist. I think you mentioned somewhere that you made clip art for them at some point, so I'm assuming you were a production artist intern? I mainly wanted to know what the second (face to face) interview was like? Like what did they ask? What did they have you do? I hear that interview is really long and intensive. Also did you apply through jobvite? I've got some questions about that too.
I was actually an Expert Production Art Intern. The big difference between the two is that EPAs handle customer uploaded images, and vector them and PAs handle more of checking EPAs vectors making sure they are printable, checking and making sure all the items are placed properly to be sent out, and making minor adjustments to designs customers create in the design lab. The making clip art is only during the slow parts of the year and when orders are running low.
The face to face interview is a bit long. It includes a standard interview, another art test, and then a shadowing session. They forgot to mention the second art test the time I went there, but now you are prepared! haha! A lot of the questions are pretty standard for job interviews; like what you like about the company, how you found them, why you think you are a good fit, etc. The biggest thing about PA is attention to detail, you’ll be doing a good deal of proof reading of both EPAs work and of customer uploaded stuff.
And yes, I think the only way to apply is via Jobvite. I found the job posting for them on Craigslist, then applied via Jobvite.
:) And I’d love to help in any way I can, so keep asking away!
Hey guys, on my other blog I have a lovely anon asking about getting a job at CustomInk, and so I figured I’d share some responses with you guys too.
BTW CustomInk is a great company to work for, and the people there are amazing.
Here’s a little painting as practice while listening to some great inspiration by Chris Oatley
I’ve been doing face studies! There is so much I need to get better at, and drawing from life and reference will help so much. So I’ve started googling ‘portrait’ and ‘selfie’ and I’ll be checking those tags and using peoples lovely faces!
Gotta remember to go slow, and not try to rush through these…
Tonight’s sketch while on break features a lovely customer that I had earlier and her son.
I am ashamed to say I let her use both coupons so she would get the hell out of my line. If you are an obnoxious person in my line please be informed I will draw a hideous picture of you. And she was buying cotton fucking candy.
