Becoming a Video Game and Multimedia Artist

0

Game art and design is a subset of game development and is concerned with game’s artwork, such as character modeling, 2D and 3D animation, game-level designing, environment and effects, game conception and texturing. A game’s artwork has a significant impact on the entire look and feel of a game, thus ultimately becoming one of the most important factors that drive customer behaviour.

The video game industry generates multi-billion dollars as revenue annually and employs thousands of game artists. As the competition is stiffening, the demand for multimedia artists, animators and game art work designers is increasing significantly. Another factor contributing to the demand for gaming professionals is consumers’ requirements for more realistic and varied video games. These games are no longer children-specific. Rather video gaming has become a preferable recreation mean for people of all ages.

Becoming a Game Art and Design Professional

Being passionate about video games is certainly important. However, what make you eligible for employment in this industry are your creative and technical skills, qualifications and hands-on experience. Therefore, it’s important to enroll yourself in a post-secondary game design program at a reputable college, in order to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to build a sustainable career.

A game and art design program will help you in:Learning how to build 2D and 3D art assets for gamesUnderstanding how to develop game environment and charactersLearning how to conceptualize, design and develop a game levelDeveloping programming skillsBuilding skills in composition and colour, texturing, painting, post effects and material editing

What Will You Study?

A post-secondary game art and design diploma program runs for two years through four semesters. The program covers a wide selection of subjects, including drawing for 3D modeling and animation, anatomy and construction, creativity in context, composition and colour, 3D modeling and texturing, game theory, social history of design, architectural design, character design, digital painting, unreal editor, integrated media, UE3 material editing, lighting, post effects and material editing, compositing and final project studio.

This is a comprehensive program that covers all aspects of games art work and prepares you to work as character modeller, character animator, level designer, texture artist, game concept artist or environment and effects artist.

Studying Game Art Design in Toronto

Numerous schools game design in Toronto offer courses in game design. Unfortunately, not all are good. A program is worth considering if it:Is delivered by industry professionals who have strong academic backgroundsOffers intensive hands-on training for building 2D and 3D art assets for games, environment and charactersProvides valuable experience through studio visits and industry eventsIncorporates industry field placement, helping you gain hands-on experience

Centennial College’s game art and design program fulfills all the above mention criteria and may be the right choice for you. The USP of this program is that it is intensively creative and is delivered in 16 consecutive months, which reduces your time to industry. You can then gain hands-on experience through industry field placement.

The author of the article discusses the process of becoming a game artist. He also writes about how Centennial College’s game design program prepares students for careers in games art works in just two years.

Game Art and Design Program Takes Creativity and Turns It Into Business Savvy

0

Success in the videogame industry is dependent upon making titles and hardware appeal to 34 million core gamers in the U.S., according to a new report released by the market research company the NPD Group. The 34 million that NPD cited in its report, spend an average of 22 hours per week playing video games and five or more hours a week on a PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, or Mac. Games they play cover the action, adventure, fighting, flight, massively multi-player, racing, real time strategy, role-playing, shooter and sports genres. It takes some creative minds to keep up with the ever-evolving industry — whether one works in Canada or the U.S.

Centennial College’s game design program — officially called Game Art and Design — trains students over a span of two years (of sixteen consecutive months) to be prepared for careers as: character modelers or animators, level designers, environment and effects artists, texture artists and game concept artists. “Now that I’ve finished the program, I can definitely look back and say that everything I’ve learned is relevant and has been applied where I’ve worked,” says 2007 program graduate Helen Thatch.

Because industry professionals and instructors developed the offering, it takes a forward-thinking approach towards the next wave of interactive games. As such, students receive hands-on training that allows them to express their own creativity while building 2D and 3D art assets for games, and developing game environment and characters. Learning occurs at the Story Arts Centre, which is Centennial College’s campus for all of its creative programs within the School of Communication, Media and Design. This location houses up-to-date computer labs, where students use the latest software to enhance their learning. Among courses that student attend are: Creativity in Context, Composition and Colour, Game Theory, Architectural Design, Unreal Editor, Life Drawing, Digital Painting, Character Design and many others.

A supplemental feature is the program’s field placement during the last semester. To make the experience as realistic as possible, students must send their portfolio to the company of your choice to show their work and be considered for a position. Once they find a placement, students work alongside professionals, and get to apply their knowledge and encounter real life scenarios.

As with most schools game design, Centennial’s has admission requirements. Academically, students must have completed an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, or have mature student status (19 years or older) and Grade 12 English C or U, or equivalent (minimum grade required) or take the Centennial College English Skills Assessment for Admission. Additionally, students must demonstrate a passion and basics skills through the submission of a portfolio that may include 10 to 15 pieces such as life drawings, sketches, paintings, sculptures or digitally produced artwork.

Emma, the author who wrote this article, notes that because Centennial College’s game design program takes two years to complete, it offers a thorough overview of the industry in addition to practical application.
