Train2Game students looking to make that critical first step into the games industry need to be creative and full of good ideas. That’s according to BioWare Associate Art Director David Lam.
“Like anything in this world, if you want to achieve anything it takes hard work and commitment.” he told BioWare blog, emphasising how you need a good portfolio too.
“Our field is highly competitive, so you have to know your stuff and be able to show it. If you want to be an artist, draw! If you want to be a programmer, code! Never underestimate the power of ideas.”
“Creativity and good ideas are what drives our business. If someone asks you what makes you better than somebody else, have an answer.” he added.
The full interview in which Lam describes his role as Associate Art Director and his life at BioWare is here.
