Khyzyl Saleem is a concept artist who works E.A and Ghost Games. Working on games such as Need For Speed Most Wanted and Need For Speed Hot Pursuit. He also makes concept art in his free time to bolster his portfolio.
The reason I’m writing this essay it becuse we need to write about an artist who has inspired our synoptic project. Our synoptic project is a racing game, which is why I chose Khyzyl.
His designs aid our ideas, because we can use his designs as inspirations. He has a unique art style, where he takes a manufactured car and puts his own twist on it. For example, one of his prints was a 2015 Chevrolet corvette, but he put his own body kit and visual aspect to it. We are also using some of the games he has worked on to help us with the design and gameplay mechanics. With my self being a programmer, this could help me with learning code to implement into our games.
He is quite important to his team, because the concept art he makes helps the direction of the game. And with out his art the game will be stuck in limbo, choosing which art style to go for. Once he has make is concept art, it allows the 3D modeller to create his vision, which gives a game it’s own feel.
Ghost Games has been around since 2011 and is based in Sweden. They have worked on games such as Need For Speed Rivals and Need For Speed Payback. Ghost Games is a subsidy, which members of staff previously working on other Need For Speed titles, Battlefield titles, the Skate franchise and also Forza Horizon.This gives Ghost Games to make Amazing games, which amazing members of staff. They have already made a couple of well received racing games. With Ghost Games being a fairly young developer, they have time on their side, becuse they can really show the racing scene what they can do.
I like his art style because he knows how to make correct lighting. What I mean by this is that in every piece of his work, his lighting always stands out. He chooses the correct lighting to contrast with car in view.
Khyzyl Saleem is a young artists with lots of experience, he’s work on many games and has a large portfolio of work. He does do work in his own time when he isn’t working on a game.
With this blog being about inspiration for our synoptic project I will compare a piece of work from a concept artist on my team. Here is a piece of artwork by Tazz, he design’s all of our concept art for this game. As you can see Tazz is more of a track artist than car artist. You can’t really compare each others work, because one has worked in the industry for many years and one has the potential to be just as good. la la la la la la.
