Over at the official Star Wars Galaxies website there's a new Team Profile posted. This time it features the Lead Artist of SWG. Allexis Allen.
What is your real name?
Alexis Allen, but please call me Alex.
What is your official title/position?
I'm the Lead Artist on Star Wars Galaxies.
How long have you been working on Star Wars Galaxies?
Ever since I can remember… No, really about 4 years.
What do you enjoy most about your job on SWG, and why?
I like to watch the evolution of the game and know that I had a hand in growing it. I also like to see all the Star Wars concept art that most people never see. Our partnership with LucasArts affords the capability of seeing the 'behind the scenes' work to a certain extent, and I think that's cool.
What types of things do you do in a typical day at work?
I ride my bicycle to work most days because I really need the exercise. I eat breakfast while I go over my email. Then I might have a meeting with the other leads to discuss what art items we need in order to accomplish a certain design goal. I gather up those art requests and asses their order of importance and time consumption. I assign those art tasks to the art team, and include myself as much as possible. I work on some art tasks that vary from 3-D objects to new vehicles to icons and UI screens. I have lunch, usually at my desk. I look into and implement new tools or processes that make the artist's job easier and faster. I work on some art tasks some more. I take a break and play with a yo-yo and have a snack. I wrap up my work on my art tasks and check them in. I ride my bike home.
