  1. Hey there good folks of the Mapcore ! Pretty excited to announce that the studio is growing. We're currently looking for 3 talented, nice and enthusiastic devs to join our studio in Montreal to contribute to We Happy Few Senior Level Designer : https://goo.gl/J8WX45 Senior Ai Programmer : https://goo.gl/KyKNrf Gameplay Programmer : https://goo.gl/0pZ93X
  2. Heyyy dude ! Antoine here nice to meet you . Jr. Level Designer going to work at Compulsion Games on We Happy Few in a bit. This portfolio looks awesome ! Nice explanations of the development of your maps, clear concise stuff. The feeling that I get though from some of the CG:GO level explanation pages is that it's very art focused somehow. Like, if I take De_Meat for example, you've two nice screenshots at the top. It's cool that you have pics to show the feel of the level but later down there's plenty more that may or may not achieve to explain how you thought of this map design wise. What I feel is that the explanations are more geared towards letting others know about your technical process rather than explaining what your design intentions were. I think the first thing people would like to see from a designer (after your flavor screenshot and the process explanation) is an annotated top down map. You've got one but I'd nudge it higher than the pack of screenshots because it's more designer-y. It's where people can understand what your design intentions were for the map, like... This is the sniper area for these and these reasons and this is the choke point and so on. A video explaining that is always a winner because... people are lazy and reading is hard lul. I think that changing curriculum vitae to Resume would make your menu stuff more punchy. I don't think a lot of people use "Curriculum Vitae" (or maybe it's a dutch thing ?). In your resume, I've always been told that experience is a much better thing to put than education. So I would nudge your experience up and put education down there somewhere, maybe after skills and before your interests. In there I would try to find a way to say that you've shipped 4 titles and worked on consoles too. It's a pretty awesome thing to mention, It's like... automatically this guy knows what he's talking about. Right ? Your downloadable resume is a little different. You've got an intro paragraph in there that's pretty cool but I would reorganize your enumeration of cool stuff that you did. Rather than putting mods first I would put 4 shipped titles there, worked on consoles, did talks at GDC, showcased stuff at E3 and did some mods. I actually missed the download link, maybe because of the mute color ? I know it's like right under the title, but my attention when directly at your information for some reason. Hope that can help you
  3. Hey buddy ! Got a few things that might improve your website. I think there's too many clicks for me to get to your work. Just put your work (soundcloud widgets and such) in your first page (what's supposed to be the home page). Also instead of putting the "Home" bit bigger, just remove it and replace it with your name and your title (i.e. video game music composer or just composer... whatever defines you). That way if I just land on your page I won't be searching for what you do if I didn't want to read your introduction paragraph. Hope that helps !
  4. Gotham just dropped on Netflix. Gaaaah can't stop watching. I'm kind of in a Batman phase right now. Been catching up on the Batman games (how did miss out on them sooo good).
  5. My condolences Mazy... Last my grandmother not too long ago (she was awesome !). Pfewww my brain needs a nap. Been interviewing for this small startup in Vancouver. They look like a really nice bunch of human beings. Got a design test and finished the scripting test today. That scripting test was insane haha. Got it yesterday at around 4pm-ish and finished it today at 5pm (eat and sleep... didn't pass the night on it). I really tried to push for modular/reusable scripts... hence why my brain needs a nap. Feels pretty awesome to get stuff done like that. There's a movie shoot right under where I live and there's a huge crane with an immense spotlight flooding my apartment. Can't sleep. I got blinds but it's like insane lighting. Note that as I am writing this it's pitch black night here in Vancouver. Linked a picture to give you guys an idea. Apparently it's a new show called "Minority Report" (based on the movie).
  6. Yep ! I totally agree. Needs to be quicker to access information. I'll give other layouts a try. When I've reorganized this stuff I'll post an update in here. Thanks guys !
  7. Ohh yeah ! First interview today. Nervous ? A little. Excited ? Yessss.

  8. Just discovered a sort of up and coming artist from Montreal (Eliott Maginot). Really cool style. The first song feels like it could be put in Life is Strange and fit perfectly. The other one is... hard to describe but really awesome.
  9. Hey Franck ! Thanks a bunch. Absolutely no offense taken (it's a fact ! No experience yet). I've put the education bit there because almost all my instructors said "In this industry... People don't really care for education. It's more what you can do". So that's that... Not too sure what to do with it to be honest.
  10. Hola good people of the Mapcore ! I've been commenting a bunch on other's portfolio and thought I'd submit myself to the exercise as well. Here's the link ! I also want to mention that I'm looking for work :). Thanks ! http://antoineladouceurld.weebly.com/
  11. Bumping from the depths of the necro stuff. So there's a new free DLC. Pretty cool, at least I think... It's all stealthy with night vision thingies (called Night Operations). Any of you going to boot up BF4 again out of curiosity ?
  12. Hey dude ! There's one thing that comes up for me. I have no idea what you actually do... do. I know your name is Shea Lane, but if you are an environment artist or a concept artist is a little bit hard for me to discover. The thing is I shouldn't even try to guess it should right in my face so there's no confusion.
  13. Hey there again John ! I've read your introduction and I think there's some little tweaks you could do in there (my opinion of the course ). I've also dug a little deeper in your portfolio. I'd really try to replace anything with "aspiring". Maybe Junior like Stefan said ? I wouldn't say "high level understanding" I think I would just go for "understanding". Some producer are very knowledgeable of pipeline stuff (anyone correct me if I'm wrong). In fact I would write this sentence with a different angle. More like... "I am a junior producer with a wide range of interests in game development things" and then mention what you like to do. In your enumeration of things you created I'd place game design documents first. I feel that for a producer it might be more important cause producers organize things, write things... For the "ultra-low resolution settings" I would rephrase that. I know what you mean, you know how to do low-poly things, but it could come off as I have this super high rez model and just put the quality settings to "low". "I employ my educational background" is super cool. The way it's phrased though I'm sort of waiting for a "I employ my experience with this ----- to do this". There's just the "to do" bit that's missing (example: I employ my expertise at climbing rocks. (To walk 4 steps at the time... that sort of thing)). Dude real talk... Your 3D things rock wayyyy harder than the 2D things. I was expecting concept art stuff. In the 3D part I would put that power up (that is totally siiiiick) way up there. So people don't have to scroll to uncover cool shit. The title for the things in the 2D art section are barely readable same thing for the 3D art bit. Imagine your readers to be a grandma who lost its glasses and has an attention deficit problem haha. In your resume I would say either "non-professional" or "personal", because they both mean the same things. Hope this helps. Making a nice portfolio is the most fucking hardest thing seriously. I know someone who's done some pretty cool stuff in a producer role at EA here in Vancouver and you know what he did back when he was junior, he made time organization sheets and pipeline sketches to prove he understood game producing stuff (waterfall things). If you do that you could showcase that in your website. That could make people go like... yep he's a producer he knows what needs to be done . Just an idea.
  14. Yep totally agree with Stefan . I also caught that in your text "I employ my educational background as managing member of...". I'd maybe put that in the first few sentences then mention your experience with 2D art, 3D, etc. I feel like it sounds more producer-ish. Just an idea.
