Capstone project by Sushan Manandhar
Build incredible characters.
As a character artist you're the person that translates the story into the life like characters that the players interact with. While environment art is a rapidly changing field, character artists are rewarded by diving deeper into their craft and mastering things like anatomy. The game industry is growing at an annual rate of 16% and continues it's take over of the entainment industry. Our students go to jobs in AAA studios like Bungie, Bioware, EA and CD Projekt Red as well as tech companies like Houzz. If you have grit, persistance and a love for characters then becoming a character artist could be a career for you.
