My name is Jeff Parrott. I am a full-time freelance Environment Artist (AVAILABLE FOR WORK). My online art portfolio for sample work is environmentartist.com. I also teach in the Game Art degree program at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. I have worked professionally in house or as a freelance Artist on in the video game industry since 2005. I have contributed to around 15 games at this point (some unannounced). My twitter account is @envart. Please follow that for shorter rants than this blog will have.
This is a repost from my blog.environmentartist.com. It covers some words of advice with regards to starting out in the world of video game art creation. Hopefully my path and experiences can you others out.
