Many Benefits of Learning Video Game Characters Design

Video games are a team sport. Therefore, even if you won't be focusing on game art in the future, understanding the fundamentals of it will prove to be super useful. Having knowledge in different fields will make you an irreplaceable member of any game development team after you finish this game design course. Furthermore, it can help you create a much more impressive portfolio and as a result, boost your career chances.

Another great thing about gaining hands-on experience with game art is that you'll be able to understand how artists work. There are two upsides to this understanding. First, game artists will be happy to contribute to any of your projects since you'll be able to work together fluently and understand each other's needs better. Secondly, you'll be able to evaluate the quality of someone's art better. This will help you hire better game artists without overpaying them.

Create Character Designs and Backgrounds the Easy Way

As mentioned before, this course will begin with an explanation of how to hire a freelancer and how to acquire stock images. Right after that, you'll dive straight into learning video game character design. You'll gain hands-on experience when it comes to creating character design, icons, launch images and much more!

You'll see how to make beautiful backgrounds, final game screen, level objectives and other game assets in Adobe Photoshop for a Candy Crush style game. If you don't have Photoshop, you can always use GIMP. However, most of the 2D game artists will tell you that mastering Photoshop is a must. And now you have a chance to do just that!
