Maybe this is not the right place for a message like this, but I’m still new, so please forgive me. ;)
I’m a Dutch graphic artist, with a few years experience in graphic design for games on the PSII and PC platforms, as wel for mobile phones. I did a lot of concept-art, pixel stuff, textures and some low-poly-modelling.
My work can be viewed at my site: http://www.allillustrations.com
If anybody knows a company in Dublin or surroundings that needs people like me, or has some tips for me, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums, Your portfolio looks great, nice work.
The only company which comes to mind which is based in Dublin and might suit your skill set would be Pop Cap games LINK I do not think they are hiring anyone or out sourcing at the moment.
The only other games company I can think of in Dublin which you could try are Skillground LINK I don’t know if your skills match what they are developing or if they are even looking for any staff etc…
Unfortunately there are not a lot of games companies in Ireland at the moment.
Best of luck in your search for work, I hope this information helps you.

As Paul mentioned, there isn’t a huge amount going on in the games industry in Ireland, but this is definitely the place to be to find out.
If you’re looking for some other non-game illustration work in the meantime, try http://www.creativeireland.com/

Thanks for the help, guys.
I’ll try those links.
I remember I tried Popcap about half a year ago, but maybe it’s worth it to send them a reminder.
In the meantime I might as well start to learn Maya, or rework my max-skills.
Which program is the most popular in Ireland for games right now?

I would go with Max, in my experience it is widely used and it would also leave the door open to you for work in other areas, eg. commercials or TV

I haven’t worked in the industry for a couple of years however then everyone seemed to be moving over to Maya and it seemed to be much more popular for TV stuff too.

I’d say Maya is more popular for game development in the UK.
