ttr_58_rick_schmitzIt’s Game Time, baby. We’ve talked syndicated comics, webcomics, magazine comics, animation…well, it’s time to jump headlong into the world of video game art. And who better to talk about what it takes to get into that world and what it entails than the studio art director for Pop Cap Games, Rick Schmitz.  Rick is a great artist (check out his stuff here), and has a ton of video game experience. If you’ve heard of “Everquest” or “Lord of the Rings Online,” then you’ve seen his handiwork.

I’m sure this interview will create a lot of questions from all the artists out there who might be thinking about going into the game world, so if you have any specific questions, be sure to send them to me at
