You know good video game graphics when you see them, and if you’re interested in a career creating the content you see up on screen, Full Sail’s Game Art Bachelor’s Degree Program can help you learn the same production methods used to create 3D art in the professional gaming industry.
This degree program focuses on the fundamentals of interactive graphics development – including character creation, scene design, asset production, in-game effects, and the physics of motion.
You’ll learn how these principles function within a game engine, and how to take your ideas from a simple sketch to a complex 3D model that moves and articulates realistically. Further classes will show you how to add even greater depth to your models with the use of textures, lighting, and visual effects.
The practical application of these combined skills is your final design project, which pairs you with students in our Game Design and Game Development degree programs to create a complete game. You’ll collaborate with this team of programmers and producers to design and create the characters and objects, as well as build the 3D environments they inhabit.
In addition to giving you a physical example of the art production techniques you’ve learned during the Game Art degree, the experience also helps you develop the personal and professional skills that will help you be a more effective member of a game development team.
