Naomi Freire, an Advanced Game Development student from Brazil, shared insights during a recent conversation about her final sixth semester at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Entertainment Arts program.
She walks us through her video game project, outlining the comprehensive development process, including the use of Blender for 3D modeling and Substance Painter for texturing. Naomi also touched on her experience with Unity and Unreal Engine.
Naomi emphasizes the importance of balancing creative development and technical skills, drawing from her attendance at a studio presentation by Felix Bernard, the lead concept artist at Relic Entertainment Studio.
