A talent for creating LEGO characters has helped UCA BA (Hons) Games Arts graduate Lewis Blythe to a rapid rise in the industry and now he’s been accepted onto the prestigious BAFTA Crew Programme, giving him a priceless opportunity to raise his profile even further. Lewis, who graduated in 2017, specialised in character art for his final major project, and throughout his course did a number of LEGO-themed commissions and side projects. Just a few months after his graduation, a job opened up at TT Games, developers of the LEGO games which are so popular. He became a Junior Character Artist, and in his three years there has already been promoted to Character Concept Artist. Lewis said “I grew so much as an artist during my three years at UCA, and really got the opportunity to direct myself and become an independent learner in my final year,” he continued “I got to make some very strong connections with a number of people that have also made their way into the games industry and being down south at Farnham was so useful as it allowed me to visit a lot of different games industry events in London and the surrounding area.” Read more about Lewis' experience: https://bit.ly/39HyLEs The next Games virtual open day is on the 25th March, sign up: http://bit.ly/3l56zQ7 #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #Gamesart #gamesartist #gameartwork #gamearts #gameartanddesign #gamesartstudent #gameart #digitalpainting #digitalillustration #digitalartwork #digitalarts #digitaldrawing #digitaldraw #digital_painting #digitalpaint #digitalartist #lego
