Episode 1: Intro to Game Art

Art is more than a pretty wrapper on a game; it’s an integral part of both the development process and the game experience delivered to players. Because decisions around the art in a game heavily impact how the game is played, game artists are experts at creative problem solving, always looking for ways to enhance the game’s clarity, satisfaction, and style.

In this video, we talk to game artists about the purpose art serves in games, as well as some of the foundational tools they use to achieve a desired experience: shape, color, and detail. These tools are leveraged across the full art pipeline, and this video provides a brief overview before we dive into each of the art sub-disciplines later in the series.
