You’ll also be introduced to everything from the different aspects of graphic design to creative and technical writing. This comprehensive approach will inform and inspire your work as a game artist!
A game artist’s tools are an imagination and a good grasp of computer technology. You’ll spend a lot of your time working over a laptop or in front of a desktop; a tablet and stylus will become a part of your routine.
