    No, not really :s
    Would be worth looking at, and using. It can be pretty difficult initially but you can find plenty of guides on the web! You'll find the download in the top right corner of the website.

    hey, basically by what i've heard/come to understand is that if you want to get into the art side of the gaming industry you probably won't need to do much story board work, as their is 'game design' and 'game art'. I guess for you doing a university degree in it would help allot with improving all round and creating a portfolio and contacts etc.? Or you can just do programming for games, which will use very little art (if any!) at all. But being on the art team would mean you need to learn how to use more computer art programs, as basic drawing skills are good for now, but if you want to get ahead of yourself its something to look for.

    What they say on their guidelines tho is that you need to stop drawing manga/anime characters - becoming really good at them will not help you get into the art side of the gaming industry at all. They like realistic artwork to beginning with as you then become a more all rounded person with your art skills.By all means experiment in different styles but you want to focus on getting good at realistic art if your going to get into the gaming industry.

    You also need to stop focusing on characters and do some environments/landscapes/creators too - or if you are going to focus around characters do the full body. If you want ideas on what to draw or the kind of style, have a look at some of the artworks.

    or look on youtube for tutorials - but basically just practice practice and try more realistic stuff at this point
