Game Art & Animation



It goes without saying that playing video games is the best way animators and designers can learn about design.  Exploring game environments and watching character models quickly reveals the techniques employed by designers and animators to bring a virtual world to life.  Perhaps equally as important are board and card games.  These allow designers to learn the rules and gameplay elements that can be applied to video games. 

Below are some examples of the board, card, and video games currently provided for use by the Richard Welsh Library.
