Oh gosh, this looks amazing! I would love to be a character designer~Lord knows I have so many original Avatar-themed characters myself.

Dammit. I did not realise that this journal is months old and the thing is filled. Sigh. It's my dream to work with Bryke. I'm even working on my own "fanseries" xD

Being a Character Designer for a show like this would be my dream come true! I'd love to apply to make a career change, but my current work online does not have much range. I wish I knew how long this job posting is going to be up so I can make some things that might impress them. :(

Wish I had something I could put in an app for.

I'm such a weak artist, I could cry... There's a slight chance I could have been hired to help make one of my favorite cartoons... Best of luck to those who apply!

You must have sent them an email or some sort of message to tell them to look at your portfolio (either a cover letter if a flat book portfolio, or email). You could have attached it or printed it out then.

Such an amazing opportunity! I just recently heard about these positions, ahhh! I want to apply for the character design position, but I feel like I'm lacking in things... gahhh. I have drawn several character sheets but no turn-arounds!!
Do you have advice on anything I can add to my portfolio? ;v;

rufftoon Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012
You have some nice designs there, and your characters have some nice expression and poses. You're right though, no characters turn around. One or two example would do the trick.
Another thing to consider in the future, to beef up the portfolio, is to draw different body types and different ages: old men, old women, fat, beefy, crippled...just to add a bit more range. But what you have there right now is very nice.

rasenth Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
Ohh thank you Rufftoon! ;v; I really appreciate your feedback! My school rarely ever gets working industry professionals to look over our stuff, so I'm reallyreallyreally thankful! I'll make sure to add a turn-around or two (hopefully Nickelodeon hasn't checked portfolios yet)!
Beefy and crippled is a good suggestion~! I've been meaning to make more characters in my comic, so that sounds like interesting body types to go for!

:iconrufftoon:
rufftoon Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
Glad to help. And about body type: just look at all the people around you at all times, and try and sketch (when you can) the ones that really jump out at you as having something a little unique. You might get a good character out of that :)

Quelques part en Automne. J'ai pas les dates, mais j'assume entre Septembre-Octobre. Peut-être Novembre. Plus tôt pour les designs, et un petit peu plus tard pour les storyboards.

Oh, I guess that's the kind of job I would look for if I'd lived in the U.S.A..in my Country is almost impossible to find this kind of jobs openings :/

There are a few animation studios in Italy, but they are small and seem to live from little production to another *sigh*. But you may be able to move within Europe. May be easier than getting to work in the US. Mind you, it is not impossible. Just a lot of administrative juggling.

Whyyyy are all the job openings happening BEFORE I graduate and get out there? WHY

Maybe I can apply to help with the fourth season if I'm lucky? *sigh*

There will be more work after you graduate. You can bet any of these guys will continue creating shows (Avatar related or not)

I'm curious: How long does it usually take for Nick to fill positions like this after they are first posted?
Reply
:iconrufftoon:
rufftoon Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
It depends on many things: how many portfolios they have to review, how many people they have reviewing them, whatever other bureaucratic reviewing is needed and how busy everyone is. They may also wish to give themselves sometime, to get to see as many port folios as possible. Nothing would be more frustrating than closing the position and seeing the perfect portfolio show up 2 days later (which may still happen).

any word on voice acting? Don't get me wrong, I would love to be good enough to create on something like Avatar, but I need a lot more practice before that. But I do love the concept of voice acting. It's the next best thing to creating a character, bringing them to life! through dialog :p
Reply
:iconrufftoon:
rufftoon Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012
Hmmm... I'm not quite certain, but I think they pretty much only hire voice actors that are affiliated with a guild (either actor or voice actors). I'm not quite sure how it works, mind you.

:iconquinnman:
QuinnMan Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
i figure that your mostly correct. that's usually the case, voice acting is a hard job to get mainly because if a voice actor is good enough to get hired, they're normally good enough to do more than one voice. and without an agent or guild, as you mentioned, probably be near impossible. but it never hurts to ask :P

I would totally apply there, but I currently have commitments that I need to see through to the end. If these jobs are still open come may of 2013, let me know. I will apply then, when these commitments are finished.

Hmm...it will depend, I guess, if the whole crew sticks until the very end. They may be done or close to be done by then. Depending when they start.

Good luck, everyone! I'm a dedicated writer, and sometimes a designer ([link]), but I can't draw at all! Haha. Hopefully some more talented artists who are passionate about the universe will get added to the team!
