Hello! My name is Josh Lynch and I am a Senior Texture Artist with over 7 years of industry experience. I have been fortunate to contribute to multiple AAA projects including Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Defiance.

I am very passionate about teaching and mentoring fellow artists. Recently, I have had the opportunity to give live demonstrations at Gnomon, GDC, and SIGGRAPH. As well, I have created online video tutorials focused on PBR material creation. Head on over to my ArtStation page to check out my personal and professional work.

My email is [email protected].

Why Am I Doing This Mentorship?

There are a couple of reasons I wanted to set up this Patreon. The first reason is that I love teaching and sharing with fellow artists. The second is that I am passionate about PBR material creation and I want to share that passion with you and help you grow in this discipline.

I want to help artists grow their texture creation skills, critical eye for detail, and help put some story and character into the textures being created. I want to help you present your materials in a professional manner and help you with building your branding and web presence.

Who Is This Mentorship For?

I am open to working with student, junior artists, or experienced industry artists. The main thing is that this mentorship is for motivated artists who are looking to improve their texture creation skills.

This mentorship is not for artists who are just opening up Photoshop, ZBrush, Substance Designer, etc. In other words, this is not a class or tutorial and you should already be creating art already. This is for artists who are skilled in content creation and are looking guidance in pushing themselves and their art forward.

I am very excited to meet you and help you grow, but you will only get out of this what you want to put into it. If you don’t do any art for a week and have nothing for me to give feedback on, that is on you.

What Can We Focus On?

Over the course of this month long mentorship you will have access to a Senior Texture Artist who is not only passionate about texture creation but is passionate about seeing you grow as an artist. Ultimately it is up to you what you want to focus on over this month long mentorship.

Are you looking to create a material from scratch? Do you have an existing material you want to improve? Are you looking for advice on lighting and presentation? Are you looking for advice on branding and web presence?

We can focus entirely on one of those aspects or a mix of a little bit of everything. It is entirely up to you, but whatever you choose I am excited to help you grow in that area!

How will it go?

Because this mentorship is for one month it is important that we maximize our time together. Please reach out to me via email so we can discuss your goals and go over any questions you may have and discuss what you want to get out of this mentorship.

Each week you will submit an update and I will talk to you about what you are working on and provide you with one-on-one guidance via online communication, paint overs, and notes.

Month Long One-On-One Mentorship

  • For this month long membership you will get dedicated one-on-one time each week. Every week you will submit your updated work for review. We will meet to discuss your submitted work over voice chat or messenger every Sunday for 1.5 hours. During these meetings I will provide dedicated one-on-one feedback via chat with screen sharing, paint overs, and possible personalized demonstrations if needed. As well as any other notes or reference material that may help. During our schedule meetings I will also give you advice on what your next step is, I want you to walk away each week feeling motivated and excited!

  • Prior to the start of your mentorship email me ( [email protected] ) with the ideas and goals you have for the mentorship so we can finalize the goals before getting started. Are you looking to create a material from scratch? Do you have an existing material you want to improve? Are you looking for advice on lighting and presentation? Are you looking for advice on branding and web presence? We can focus entirely on one of those aspects or a mix of a little bit of everything.

  • At the conclusion I will hand over all materials from the mentorship. This will include notes, reference, documentation, and any paint overs from your mentorship for you to have as reference.

Disclaimers


  • This mentorship does not guarantee you a job in the industry or employment or internship possibilities with my current employer. This mentorship is designed to help you grow your skills as an artist to better your artwork.
  • As I mentioned previously, please email me directly prior to starting to the start of this mentorship so we can go over goals for the month.
  • I am currently working full time so I will not always be able to be reached outside of our weekly meetings. If I dont get back to you for a few days outside of our weekly meetings, that is why.
