I got a job at Gameloft as a pixel artist like a couple of months ago at the studio in Madrid, and today was my first day :s I was really nervous and embarrased, but the people there seem really good guys and great artists.

Well, so far I don't seem to be doing any pixel sprites.. which confused me a bit o_o but I guess it's kinda early to judge, I'm gonna suffer a lot if there isn't really any pixel involved! Hopefully I can catch with the other people at the studio, this is actually my first full time job too.

Let's see how everything goes >_> if it's a disaster I can allways do uhh... programming... maybe, I got my degree not long ago.

Bueno, esto veo que es súper antiguo, pero ¿sigues en Gameloft? ¿Podrías comentar tus experiencias brevemente? Siempre me he preguntado qué juegos comerciales habrán tenido el honor de usar tus gráficos (exceptuando el CSW) :D

Si, sigo en Gameloft como artista 2d.
La verdad es que al principio aprendi muchas tecnicas y herramientas que me ayudaron mucho para probar nuevas cosas y hacer mi trabajo mas rapido y mejor, pero ultimamente apenas aprendo nada y siento que me he estancado, practicamente me paso el dia implementando assets de otros artistas... llega a ser un poco frustrante. El ambiente de trabajo es lo mejor que tiene, la verdad.

Oh hi, i work at Gameloft too :P (Montreal).
I don't know for other studios, but we in Montreal don't make games in pixel art anymore (well at least it seems so); in consequence, most of the pixel artists that were here had to learn 3D.
But they must have told you what there were hiring you for, didn't they? :P

The position was for "Pixel Artist" but in my opinion it would be more accurate to call it just "2D Artist"... though in the Barcelona studio they seem to be doing still a tiny bit of pixelart.

I wouldn't really mind learning 3D though :P

I have worked for GL Berlin (Closed now) then GL Paris for 2 years. And now, I was looking for a job and succeed test for GL Madrid 6 month ago too, but I've never called them back because finaly my girlfriend can't move from Paris, so I'm happy they took a guy with such skill like you. Hope you'll enjoy working there like I've enjoyed working in GL Paris ^^

Even if I'm not doing any pixel art at all so far and the project we started isn't exactly.. my taste, I do actually really enjoy working there. It's still such a shame that they refuse so hard to make true pixel art games...
