Oh hey there, I wasn't expecting to bump into you here, on my website. How have you been? Me? I was just taking a look at the website of this incredible artist named Alexander Alza, who is currently a senior environment artist at High Moon Studios. He's mostly a 3D environment artist, and he has worked on some really big names such as God of War and Destiny 2. Here, have a little peek:
Now those are some impressive stuff. But wait, these are just his artworks. What about his website? Is is just as good?
"Yes, yes it is." - Howard Lin
For starter, the whole interface is a pretty toned down and easy on the eye. He uses black and grey theme, white text, and some small doses of colours here and there - good for not being too distracting and gives the spotlight to his art. The whole page just look clean and pleasant. His resume is relatively short and to the point, no useless information at all like some of those art students with nothing to show. The icons of his software proficiency session is a good touch. What's even better though, is the fact that he listed everything he has worked on, categorized them neatly, and put all of their cover arts right beside them. If that's not a eye catching visual resume, I don't know what is.
Now let's take a look at his home page. Right off the bat, we see banners of his work samples, organized into ENV personal, ENV professional, props, and misc. The horizontal samples look amazing together. It's user friendly and professional. It's always good to put the same links on some big pictures because people are far less tempted to click on things when they are just words, but that doesn't mean you could slack on that!
Overall, it's a clean, professional, and beautiful portfolio website. In the distant future, I will have the same quality site without being a lowly slave of wordpress. JUST WAIT AND SEE.
