Daaaang... I really need to work on my character modeling skills. 3D certificate and all I can show for it is a bunch of crappy student work. :\

His hook move, we wanted one side to be a razor sharp axe and the other a vicious hook.

I am a Design and Architecture major, proficient in Photoshop and know a little bit of Rhino and 3dsMax, is that something that could qualify me to get a job at Riot? What kind of qualifications or skills does Riot look for in a person who wants to work in the conceptual/design/art/3d modeling department?

This sculpts are so incredibly detailed.. Are they ported into the game wholesale? Or do you guys have to tweak them?

I was just curious as to what your background/training in art? Did you go to school for this ind of stuff or were you mainly self taught?

I was going to a liberal arts college but majoring in animation, but I wasn't really progressing as to how I would have liked and after talking to some professionals, like cgsammu or Monty Oum, I decided to switch to an arts college (SCAD) starting this upcoming semester so that I can focus primarily on my work/be challenged and hopefully improve a lot more than I was before. I'm always curious to hear about the backgrounds of people in the industry, and I know that in the end it's up to me to do the work in order to improve myself, and that switching colleges won't instantly make me better, but it does help motivate me and talking to people already in the industry always gives me a little nudge in what I hope is the right direction.
