About to become a pro game artist

Mon May 16, 2016, 1:51 PM
Hi All :)

I hope you're all well.

I know I don't journal a whole lot. Matter of fact the last one I wrote was about me entering a Game Art and Design program at the Art Institutes. It's about 3 years later and I'm set to graduate with my BS in Game Art and Design in just under a month. Not that I've been idle on DA for all that time, please check out my Featured Gallery. For those of you who like my fine art, I will be submitting more as soon as I get my career in order (those actually take a really long time to make). For those of you that like my new game models, I'll be submitting them here, SketchFab, and on my website. It's an interesting thing, game art. From the artist's point of view, it can be a way to breathe life into your visual ideas, and give them more solidity and legitimacy. And with the revival of VR, the constant advancement of resolution and frame-rate capabilities, as well as server technologies for Massive Multiplayer games, and the opening of the game-design field to indie studios through app-stores like Steam, Games are an extremely exciting field at the moment. Games are even evolving into a true art form. Indie studios like Hello Games with their new title No Man's Sky, are testing the limits of MMORPGs, both with the size of their universe and the almost limitless variety of the planets and life forms there. Blizzard is about to open a fully produced motion picture based on the strength of World of Warcraft. Small game studios like Campo Santo (FireWatch) and Night School (Oxenfree) are using the medium to tell brilliant short stories in new and interesting ways. A game can be made be one person in his/her spare time, a small group of dedicated developers, or a massive company like Activision, but the one thing that they all have in common is that the only limit is imagination.

If you're still here after reading that, Could you please take a minute to fill out a short, anonymous survey of the game industry? 6 questions:

Thanks so much :)
