Artistic Power-Ups: Upskilling Program for Defizens

As an art outsourcing company, we want to continue to provide high-quality game art assets to our partners. To do that, we need to make sure we support our artists' growth.

Our artists benefit from our upskilling program; we provide them with the materials they need to hone their skills and further develop their art styles.

Any good company knows that in order to grow, you need to develop your people.


Sometimes, an employee may not have the technical skills to handle certain projects. That does not mean you need to find a replacement, however. A great way to retain and develop effective employees that may not have as much experience is called upskilling or reskilling.


In our case, upskilling is a great way for our artists to learn and develop different art styles and workflows. As an art outsourcing company, we want to continue to provide high-quality game art assets to our partners. To do that, we need to make sure we support our artists' growth. Our artists benefit from our upskilling program; we provide them with the materials they need to hone their skills and further develop their art styles.


For the first part of the upskilling program, we tackle the fundamentals of art like perspective, anatomy, and lighting. This acts as a warm-up for beginners. It is also a great exercise for those that want to improve on the basics.


We believe that every artist should be familiar with the basics first because a strong understanding of advanced concepts relies heavily upon the knowledge of the fundamentals. It is essential to foster a good co-working environment where everyone can engage with each other and share tips and tricks. With different workflows and techniques, the artists can learn a thing or two from each other by sharing their experiences.


We are on our second batch in the program, and it is good to see the artists collaborating to develop their skills. On top of that, it is a great time to socialize and get to know each other since we have a work-from-home setup. The program aims to not only teach but also provide a short reprieve from the hectic work life.


The program has exceeded our initial expectations, and we plan on providing more programs. Eventually, we will have a program available for any Defizen that wants to develop their craft or explore new areas of expertise. This is also an assurance to our partners that our services will continue to be of the utmost quality.


As a people-centric company, Definite Studios' main goal is to foster the growth of its Defizens and encourage their development.
