Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
The Rookies was founded by Andrew McDonald and Alwyn Hunt. They both worked in the Visual Effects Industry for over 18 years, each working at some of the world’s top studios. Since 2009, the team has grown to include an Advisory Board which helps the company head in the right direction and evolve as quickly as possible.Learn More

… and they’re saying a lot of great things about us! It's super humbling for us to here these opinions, but our team truly enjoys helping everyone as we have all been on this same journey before.
I personally think The Rookies is better than Artstation, because it exposes you to the level of artists that you're competing against.
