What is the seed to inspire game creation?

Let me take you back to the late 1970s. George Lucas had a groundbreaking idea for a science fiction epic called "Star Wars," but he faced a significant challenge: how to convey his vision to studio executives who couldn't see what he imagined. Enter Ralph McQuarrie, a brilliant concept artist whose stunning visuals brought Lucas’s ideas to life. McQuarrie’s artwork didn’t just illustrate the world of Star Wars; it transformed it into something palpable, something real that could be pitched to the studios. His work was a crucial turning point that helped turn a dream into one of the most iconic film franchises of all time.

Just like McQuarrie did for Star Wars, concept art can be the bridge between your ideas and reality in the world of video game design. It all starts with inspiration.

One of the key elements I’ll discuss in our educational program is the source of inspiration for your work. So, what inspires me today? Where do I find it? And how can you make it part of your routine?

I draw immense inspiration from a collection of incredible books that delve into the principles of game design, the nuances of color and light, and the detailed processes behind creating compelling video games. These volumes are not just informative but visually stunning, offering invaluable insights for anyone looking to bring their creative visions to life.

Additionally, I make it a daily routine to visit Artstation, a treasure trove of incredible 2D art and concept designs. The sheer talent and creativity on display can spark new ideas and keep your creative juices flowing. From character designs to breathtaking landscapes, the art on this platform helps visualize the endless possibilities for your own projects.

Inspiration is the seed from which your creative journey will grow. By immersing yourself in the work of great artists, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of what makes designs resonate. It’s about learning to see the world through the eyes of others and then using that vision to fuel your own unique creations. Making inspiration a part of your daily routine is crucial because it continuously feeds your creativity and keeps you motivated to innovate.

Are you a person who wants to create video games, learn the potential of tools beyond gaming, and build a solid career without fear of the current layoff conditions in the industry? If so, I want to talk with you. Reserve a time in my calendar this week to connect and help me create the content that will allow you to transform into a Video Game Creator. 

Let’s create the next great game together! Tony Munoz
