Though every aspect in the game developing process is as important as the next, the first factor that a game will be judged on are its graphics. This is where game artists come into play. Game artists specialize in the creation of everything visual in the game, from characters to the interface.

Game artists play an integral role in the game development pipeline. They are responsible for creating concept art for the game, and this concept art will give the rest of the development team, namely the designers a better idea on how to create content based on that concept. Without concept art, the game design team will have a hard time imagining how to create gameplay mechanics and level designs for that game. In other words, the art team is necessary to begin those first few steps in the development stages.

Those choosing to major in Game Art under KDU’s Game Development program will be trained to do just that. You will be taught on how to create good concept art, 2D sprites, 3D models, animations, and effective user interface. Aiding you in the creation of these assets are digital imaging software such as Adobe Photoshop as well as texture, imaging and 3D modeling and animation software such as 3D SMax 2012.

Students in this major are expected to be well-versed in production art such as digital painting and drawing. Apart from that, they will be required to come up with good illustrative work such as typography and graphic design. You will be required to draw on both paper and digitally via tablets. By equipping students with these skills, a foundation for both digital and non-digital output can be  established.

Being a game artist, the freedom to express your creativity is always present. Take games like El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron and Okami for example. The graphics and artwork present in these games were produced by game artists, and truth be told, without the visual cues from them, these games wouldn’t have made much of an impact.
