BA (Hons) Games Art
Hello, my name is Donatas (Donny). The art of video games always fascinated me, cool characters, environments, monsters, all of it. Eventually I discovered the creative part myself. I ended up combining the two and decided pursue a career in Games art. Throughout the course, I tried many different creative outlets, and ways of working, but nothing interested me as much as 2D concept art. In this last project my goal was to combine all of my knowledge while focusing on digital painting. Since my interest has always been in creating characters, I made a challenge to create more unique characters than I was used to, each different to one another and most importantly try to capture the story and the feel of each one of them. I also challenged myself to portray the world with my environment pieces. The goal was to utilize 3D to my advantage, which helps to get the idea of perspective, lighting, instead of going straight to painting and starting from scratch. The whole course, helped me grow as an artist. Seeing where I started and where I am now, makes me want to strive to be the best artist I can even more.
