What does a Game Artist do?

Here’s how LinkedIn describes it: “Game artists work with game designers and game developers to create artistic elements such as locations and characters in digital games using 3D modeling and illustration.”

A game artist is the person responsible for the creation of visual content for the game during the game design and production process. These may include the game’s characters, locations, effects, interfaces, and other visual elements. The game artist creates the visual language for the game to support the atmosphere and story of the game.

Game artists use a range of tools and software used to design content such as the graphics, characters, locations, effects and interfaces of games. In the middle of these tools are well-known software such as Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk Maya, ZBrush and Unity.

Game artisans are always collaborating with the game design group and other game developers and submitting content they design to support the game’s visual form, story and mechanics.

Game artists may also involve creating concept art, character design, location design, effects design and other visual elements for games.

In order to work in this field, it is necessary to have received training in related fields such as graphic design, art or cinema production and to have a sufficient knowledge of software and tools.
