Today’s video game graphics are more realistic and impactful than ever. If you’ve considered taking your artistic talents to the game industry, Full Sail’s Game Art bachelor’s degree program can help you learn the same production methods used to create 3D art for gaming projects.
This degree program focuses on the fundamentals of interactive graphics development – including character creation, environment and prop creation, the production pipeline, in-game effects, and animation.
You’ll learn how these principles function within a game engine, and how to take traditional art and animation principles and apply them to models that look, move, and articulate 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 happens in your final portfolio courses, in which you will create content within a chosen discipline of study to showcase your artistic skills.
In addition to giving you a physical example of the art production techniques you’ve learned, your experience in the Game Art program also helps you develop the personal and professional skills that will help you be an effective member of a game development team.
