Nib's "Need to Know" About Vanguard Art
Jeff Damron, an Associate Artist at Sigil Games Online, was kind enough to indulge Ten Ton Hammer staffer Niborea's questions about the artistic talent behind Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
Ten Ton Hammer: What skills do you feel are paramount to up and coming artists looking to break into the gaming industry?
I don’t know all of the fancy words for it….light and form and shape and foreground and background, weight and balance, and this and that…you just need to know art and what looks good. The tools come second. You need to be creative because for as massive as a game as Vanguard is, you never know what you will be making from one week to the next.
