Méabh Deloughry, a former intern who now has a role as a Junior Concept Artist describes the experience of completing the ‘Awesome Image’ brief:
“The brief proved invaluable to me as I learnt how to work with constructive criticism, translating it into artwork amends. There is a work efficiency here that you pick up very quickly, which makes everyone gel, constantly strengthening teamwork skills, and making us all work like a well-oiled machine.”
The challenges at Atomhawk vary from project to project. Some require a lot of stylisation and some demand more realistic results, which is great for learning different ways to approach projects. Our artists need to be versatile and use the full extent of their skills, sometimes pivoting from one skillset to another in an instant.
Dennis van Kessel, a former Atomhawk intern who also now works with us as an Intermediate Concept Artist, says:
“Receiving constructive feedback was incredibly valuable to help improve my illustration and fundamental skills, for example, for colour iterations, and to improve my approach when going from greyscale to colour.”
We’ve had the privilege to invite many interns through our doors during ten plus years of Atomhawk, and have gone on to hire many in full-time roles. Sharing our collective knowledge with future concept artists and providing a space where potential can be fulfilled is central to who we are as a studio.
