Digital Dragons 2019 Talk on May 28th @ 12pm!

News / 22 May 2019

Time's a ticking! Slides are mostly ready, just need to pack and I'll be flying off to Krakow, Poland this coming Friday! Very excited (and slightly nervous) to be giving my first game dev-related talk! They announced the time a few weeks ago -- I'll be giving my talk on the 2nd day of the conference on Tuesday, May 28th @ 12pm! 

Hope I'll be able to see some of you there! Anyone else going to the conference?




Star Wars JEDI: Fallen Order Reveal + Live Podcast Interview w/Ryan Kingslien later today

News / 11 April 2019

As if this week culminating in pulling back the curtain on the game I've been working on for the last two years wasn't enough (stay tuned for the livestream from Star Wars Celebration on Saturday, April 13th @ 1:30pm CST!)...


"Don't Stand Out..."

I'm also excited to be doing a live interview with Ryan Kingslien and his Game Art Institute class later today, Thursday at 1pm PST! It'll be an interview talking about my career, career advice and all that -- mostly geared towards students or people looking to break into the industry. You'll be able to watch live at this link: https://learn.gameartinstitute.com/game-artist-podcast-live?utm_source=Jobye-Kyle&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=Jobye-Kyle&fbclid=IwAR3geGypHzoCIJ6z518c4SL0rr6qjJE2N6rMceYhoIOU7fbfRe2Ik5O6-Rw 


It should be a fun and casual conversation, looking forward to it! It's nice to be able to give back to the next generation of game artists. It's something I wish I had when I was back in 3D School back in 2007-2011!



  

Upcoming Digital Dragons 2019 Talk - Approaching Modular Vegetation in Games

News / 08 April 2019

I've shared the news on every other social platform, but figure I'd do it here as well! 

I'm Incredibly excited to announce that I'll be doing my first game dev-related talk at the end of May...all the way in Poland -- for the Digital Dragons game conference! I'll be talking about the modular approach I took to creating the vegetation in ME: Shadow of War. Big thanks for Kacper Niepokólczycki who thought of approaching me for this :).

This explains the big push to get my portfolio updated on here ahead of this (minus the fact that it's been long overdue!), as a lot of the media will feed into the talk naturally. I'll, of course, make sure to post up the slides and eventual video of the talk on here, once they're available!

Between preparing for this and big milestones at work with JEDI: Fallen Order, it's going to be a *buuuuusy* next few months!
