Sam McHaffie

Computer Games Art - BA (Hons)

My name is Sam McHaffie and I’m a 3rd year Computer Games Art student specialising in environment and concept art.

Since a young age I have always wanted to be a part of the game industry. I have always been inspired by the art of video games and films, collecting many art books over the last few years. Before deciding to do my course I had always enjoyed drawing and creating art for myself and as commission work which allowed me to gain the confidence and drive to have a career in this industry. Learning from this course has allowed me to find a passion in creating environmental art and has increased my drive to join the game industry.

These environments are from my personal project from my final year. The first project was inspired by Attack on Titan. I was inspired by other artists I follow to create an environment which was originally stylised but remade in a realistic style. The second project is an environment based on my own concept. I modelled, textured and rendered the project using my own workflow which allowed me to create the environment I envisioned, culminating in a great project to finish off my time at university. I look forward to developing my skills and starting my career further in the games industry.
