Game Art Combine your artistic talents with your love for video games and turn that creative combination into a professional career. Traditional skills, such as sketching and life drawing, with character design work in 2D/3D, will allow you to develop your craft using industry-standard technology and production methods. You will create art for games played across multiple platforms and you'll build worlds that players want to lose themselves in. Our hands-on approach will see you experimenting with different design concepts to find your own personal flair and you will produce your own showreel to ensure that you are job-ready on graduation.
