Hannah Crosby, Game Character Artist, speaks to Women in Games Jobs

Hannah Crosby, Australian Character Artist with Microsoft Rare, met with Antonia Cullum of Women in Games Jobs at the Develop Conference in Brighton, UK. Her advice on the qualities needed seeking a job in the games industry. “I think persistence; there are sometimes a limited number of roles, especially in character art out there so you might need to be prepared to go into a slightly different role. I started out in environment art even though character art is what I wanted to get into. There are a lot more roles in environment art, so sometimes you need to get into a parallel role or into a similar industry. Basically doing your own work. If you go as an artist and having a portfolio of art you can present that shows you know how to do this stuff and that you’re passionate about it and do it on your own time.”
