In 2003, right before graduating from College I applied to Oddworld Inhabitants. This studio was my dream studio and when they said they were interested and sent me an art test I was beside myself. They gave me 5 days to model texture and light a scene based off a concept. At the time I had no knowledge of Maya and since OW used Maya I created the test in MAYA. I think the test suffered for it. I should have just made the test in Max and exported into Maya (which is what I did years later for my Naughty Dog test). I submitted the test on time and the response I got was that they had re-evaluated their pipeline and decided they didn't need another artist. I was crushed but at least they didn't say that my test sucked. 2 years later Oddworld closed their doors after finishing Strangers Wrath.
