Kat Unsworth

United Kingdom,  Leicester De Montfort University,  Game Art Design,  July 11, 2015

My name is Kat Unsworth and I am a final year student at De Montfort University studying Game Art Design. My career aspiration is to become a character artist.
I come from a mainly fine art background and I have always had a love for people, anatomy and portraiture. Since starting my course I have had the opportunity to concept and create props, environments, vehicles and characters. But after dabbling in all of them I of course found my interest was in 3D character creation.

Now I am very driven to constantly improve my skills and push myself to level up whenever I can. My three years on my degree have helped me build my confidence, build the right skills to enable me to pursue my career and with such an amazing community of other artists around me has meant that I have achieved much more than I ever could on my own.

I am currently working on my final major project with another artist, I am creating characters to populate a small environment. You can see our progress here -
