Game Industry Advice4studentsI was asked by an aspiring 3d artist who was about a year from actually attending college, for some advice about the gaming industry and this is what I had to say to her. She was specifically thinking about going to Digipen, which is the same college I went to. But the advice applies to just about any school that offers a program in "video game' 3d art.Game Industry Advice4students by Athey
Well, there are a few things I'd suggest you do, if you have the goal of being a 3D Artist in the gaming industry.
First off, you need to really decide if you want to aim for the gaming industry or production film 3d.
Most schools that offer degrees in 3D Animation could go either way. The big animation projects that they all have you do are big prerendered, storyboarded 3d animated sequencees - which is obviously much more along the lines of film production. The limitations and techniques used in a planed out, storyboarded 30sec/1-2min animation are entirely different from the limitations and techniques used

with a lot of fantasy that he can't express good enough in digital paintings because he's such a lazy arse person to practise.
That pretty much sums it up for me... or doesn't it?
I'm absolutely addicted to game of thrones, supernatural, sherlock and... the powerpuff girls! yeah I said it.
My favourite movie of all time is Pulp fiction
I listen to all kinds of musical genres these days (most of it is either alternative or hardcore but also classical and melodical stuff in general)
I'm... kind of tall (boy I'm scared of thin steel doorframes)
And I'm hopefully a nice person
that's all you need to know about me^^
