Hey there! I've been lucky to work in the TV animation industry as a background painter, and I want to pay forward to those who need guidance and encouragement to become one of us! So I'm offering mentorships to emerging artists. My specialty is painting, but I think I still have something to contribute to designers and storyboarders. And if you're just not sure what you want to do, I can probably help you there as well!
There's no charge but I have very limited slots available due to time constraints. I can offer 1-2 hours a month via skype &/or e-mail, spent in whichever way will best suit your needs. Here are some examples of the help I can provide:
- Critiques of your work
- General career guidance
- Industry resources
- Life advice
- Homework assignments
- Demos & tutorials
- David King's personal e-mail address
If you're interested, just fill out this form. I'll be deciding on mentees some time in late February. If you don't get selected, don't fret! A slot may open up in the future and I'll be coming back to these applications. Looking forward to meeting you!
