Aliyah Jawad

Computer Games Art - BA (Hons)

My name is Aliyah, I am a third year Computer Games Art student who specialises in 3D environment art. Inspired by games, art, photography and film, my work strongly communicates my passion for developing narrative with a focus on lighting, composition, prop-modelling and material work.

I focus heavily on realism and semi-realism within my works with a strong understanding of the 3D modelling pipeline that I have built during my time at ARU. This course has provided me with the opportunity to use industry standard software to successfully develop my skills and prepare myself for a career in the games industry.

This scene is my final project for the course. I was inspired by the game ‘Stray’ as the game’s visual focus on lighting and colour was something that I wanted to develop within my own work. With this scene, I successfully met the game’s art style and enriched the environment with a narrative that would fit in the game’s world.

I hope to be able to work within a team in the games industry to push myself further with my own development, as well as being able to engage with others who have the same interests and their own skills.
