Concept Creation: The Boat House

Instructor Info

Anya Elvidge is a 3D Environment and Concept Artist who had experience working in Creative Assembly on the Total War: Warhammer franchise. She had always enjoyed art as a child, but when she discovered that she could study to become a digital artist on video games, she attended a university to study Game Art. That was 5 years ago and she had never looked back. Red Dead Redemption is her favorite game and had many wonderful memories playing it with friends, and it was part of what inspired her to join the game industry. Advice she gives to artists just starting out is to work hard and make stuff in your spare time! As often as you can. Learn off your own back, and don’t expect to be spoon-fed information by anyone out there. The more you work on your own personal projects, the sooner you will find your own style and niche, and you will become unique in what you can offer.
