Anonymous said: hii! i also was going to apply to intern @ riot and i was wondering what you sent them? like a portfolio? with what kind of art? thanks!
I went to their hiring page and looked over the internship page first! It basically says to send them a “note” with what you want to get out of an internship at Riot Games and what sort of skill set you have.
I wrote them a very personal, letter of intent that was about three paragraphs long. I tried to explain myself and my artistic career up until now and where I want to be heading. I also sent my portfolio!
Ultimately my suggestion is to try and speak about your strengths and what you want to do at Riot Games. They said that internships are pretty much made up if your skillset is desired. I was really apprehensive about sending my application in but a lot of Rioters gave me a lot of supportive words and wished me luck. The best advice was that you can’t achieve anything if you don’t try, so best of luck to you if you do send in an application!!
I took a few courses on hyperventilating and sent in a letter of intent for internships at Riot Games today. Wish me luck! I did this to avoid doing other work, so now I’m a bit behind for AUSA but no regrets right now…
By the way I’ll be headed off for D.C. for Anime USA this weekend (tomorrow the journey begins) so please stop by and say hello! I did the badge artwork for the convention like previous years, so I’ll be on the guest area—not sure where that is. But I hope to see you there!!
Working with Riot
I finally got the prompt for my art test with Riot!! I wish I could post the preliminary sketch and the prompt but I most likely won’t be able to release anything until it’s accepted and or published in the Journal of Justice but I’m so incredibly excited and nervous.
Hopefully what I sent will be critiqued and accepted so I can move on to the painting process and finer detailing. Regardless it’s an incredible feeling to know that I’m working with a real company in the gaming industry and all this experience will be something I can use in my future career hunting.
Now if only I could tame the butterflies in my stomach————-!!!
