Review

Tell us about yourself: Who are you, what do you love to do, and where are you from?

My name is Alessandro, I am a freelance concept artist and illustrator focused mainly on Environment Design. I’m from Turin, in the north of Italy.

What did you do during the mentorship, and what helped you on each task?

I did two different mentorships: The first was focused on 2D Environment Concept Art and was focused on improving my skills in Photobashing, Perspective, and Lighting. The second one was focused on learning Blender to produce concepts and illustrations.

What was it that we did differently, that made you trust us and get a mentorship with us in comparison to other ways of learning?

What got me into taking the mentorship was the works of the teachers that I saw on Artstation as well as the works of the students. After sending an email to get further information, Chris and his team were very helpful, describing all the different parts of the mentorship to be sure it was really useful for me and if it was what I was looking for.

Concept Environment

This work was done as the final concept for the 2D mentorship using perspective grids, photo bash, and painting.

How was the mentorship for you?

It was an amazing experience! The class was really small and even if the overall lesson was around 2h, it always ended up being even 4/5h to be sure that we got everything correct. After the mentorship, the teachers were very open to additional questions and feedback and learned a lot from that too.

What would you say when you recommend us to someone who needs help?

This school boosted my knowledge and skills in environment design, both 2D and 3D, and thanks to CGVerse I was able to land my first in-house job as an Environment Concept Artist.

3D & 2D Concept Environment

This work was done at the end of the 3D mentorship using Blender and Photoshop. I created all the assets and textured them to be able to create my final scene.

What would you love to do in the future as a digital artist?

I will continue to push myself in the hopes that I can one day land a commission as an artist for Wizards of the Coast.
