Focus on the big picture before jumping into the details“I highly recommend you frequently focus on getting a clear picture of your overall environment. I’ve seen so many students jump straight into the small details such as spending too much time focusing on a prop, but if the entire structure has a problem, then it can amount to wasted time.”
Document the process of your projects“Your future employers care about this process, even if it’s a simple grey-box model or a terrible mistake that didn’t pan out. It presents your thinking process and creative problem-solving skills. It’s also part of how I secured an interview opportunity to work at Blizzard.”
Show off your work“Since most 3D artists post their work on ArtStation, I highly recommend getting a Pro account, so that you can get more visibility to the public. ArtStation even has discounts on student subscriptions. For instance, after the art director of Diablo IV saw my portfolio there, he reached out to me on LinkedIn, which was another place I’d post my work because that’s where a lot of professional artists and recruiters are looking for candidates.”
