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.

  1. underrated video, this actually has great tips and has inspiring artists in it. ty <3

  2. Dows anybody know what song they used for the intro?

  4. Can i just mention how awesome that 'Welcome to Tatooine' shirt is.

  5. My motto is now “every time you consider stopping, consider not stopping.” Genius.

  6. Look talent is real but a non talented person has the same potential as a person who isnt. Talented people just start out a little higher on the lader

  7. I didn't know that Jim Hopper works at Riot Games

  8. I don't know why but the tone of this video feels super condescending. Like its a show for kids on public tv. Honestly can't stand it. But you have some good info and advice going for you

  9. you guys seriously motivated me. thank you to all

  10. Pleaes help me i can not under stAnd when i made game by mobile right or wrong

  11. Am I the only one who want the music list that is playing behind the artist intro titles???!!!

  12. when you wanna make a game, you how to programm but you don't know anything about art… yeah thats what I feel

  13. They can't focus on my allies when I am GIGA ChoGath!!!

  15. Give the Quantity advice guy plenty kisses and a bit of a raise. He a good man👌👌👌

  16. 6:05 "Kogmaw, Malzahar, Sivir, Xerath, Zilean, Mordekaiser, Camille, Karthus, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, this guy, Tom Clancy, UBISOFT……and so, we've removed all the bad characters from this game." #givenithinawife

  17. Awesome job, the video's fun to watch and really inspiring. I was actually having one of those down moments. I was doubting on my capacity to become good enough to become a professional game artist. I might still be in one of those moments but it actually helped me to hear that "just consider not stopping" Sentence ^^.
    Thanks alot, would love to work with Riot by the way 💜

  18. I'm better at drawing backgrounds and landscapes. I think this would be a good career for me.

  19. As an older person who is beginning my hobby as a game developer, it is truly inspiring to hear the young professionals (I have kids their age) be so encouraging.

  20. All these art leads, art directors and what not, look so damn young!… Do some people still get into this busines in their 30’s and 40’s?

  21. Very motivating content, thank you for this

  22. Okay but what if I’m an artist who can’t animate….. like… is there a team that just makes the assets look good? 😅😂

  23. whats a good way to practice 3d rendering and digital art?

  24. No wonder games are so Kool, there's a lot that goes in them. Ty for sharing this. Moving to the next episode. Cya there

  25. Ooooooooowwwwwwww, amazing video. 👏👏👏👏👏👏

  26. This is "THE" video I was searching for to understand different types of art style for game development 👍🏼

  27. 27 years old here, feeling a bit lost. I have always loved games and art and always wanted to be a game artist. Am I too late? I strongly believe not.. but idk what to do…should i go to an art school or college? I am trying to self improve my art right now. And all. But there are also bills to pay , need to have money for food … dayum … i hope to find the best way to make it work

  28. note: not for programer, but its great to understand what other thinking (yes, mind reading technique), so programer can watch too

  29. This was really fun and informative, thanks👍🏼
