Our team will review it and let you know if it has been approved. During our review, we are mainly looking at fundamentals and design.
THE ART TEST
You will have two weeks to complete an art test from a brief. The Art test will include environment design, character design and composition. The whole art test can be done with the software of your choice and will test your skills. The point here is to see what you can do under a specific deadline.
If you have been selected after the art test, we will then conduct an interview in English. This is preferably done in our facility, but Skype call is possible. We are looking for people with a great mentality, drive and team spirit.
Who are we?
New3dge Concept Art is born out of a passion for games and films, but also an understanding of the industry needs. Since our opening in 2010, we have mastered digital art education and taught proven techniques to many of our alumni who are now working in the video game and film industry across the world.
We are amongst the best art schools in France, and our internationnal renown grows stronger every year. From traditional modeling and oil painting, to 3D procedural modeling and photorealistic rendering, we have been teaching the next generation of game and film artists for a decade.
« The concept art curiculum offers a complete program with professional teachers working in the industry to teach us everything we need to know to be a concept artist. I aleady learned a lot about differents processes to develop and achieve a project, improved my design and learned to use new technologies such as Virtual Reality. The small number of students and the amount of feedbacks we can get allows us to get better much faster. »
