Hi, I’m Nicolas Vogelbusch, first and foremost, I’m an Artist, from 3D Art to 2D illustrations I love it all.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

I would love to be an Art Direktor and a Freelance Artist for Companies like Wizards of the Coast or other Fantasy Based Companies.

What is a good design for you?

Creativity. It’s all about making new things with your own twist on it. The Craftsmanship comes with time, the creativity must be nurtured and continuously implemented.

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

Learning to let go of ideas and iterating even if I think the idea is already good. It took me a while to understand the iteration process and all the benefits it brings with it. And who like cutting out their own ideas. But I think over the Years I have learned to deal and like both of those concepts, and I use them a lot in all my Projects..

Who or what inspires you?

Artists like Scott Fischer or Karl Kopinski, have been a big influence on me since my childhood really. But of course, I learn and get inspired a lot by my friend and of course my Professors.

How do you approach a new project?

I love Planning and organising Projects and I think a careful preproduction and Iteration phase makes or breaks a Project.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Try everything and give 100% in every course, if you don’t you will only learn half as much as what you could learn. And isn’t learning the reason why we are all here?

Have you changed during your studies? How?

Yes, my Skills have improved a lot over the Years and my understanding for feedback, Iteration and the whole process of making Games. If I looke back my knowledge is like night and day.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

I allways loved Video Games and Art so why not combine the two.

What are you not going to miss in your studies?

All the none game related theory parts, I love debates but those courses drained me so much.

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

l go out and celebrate with Friends and Family and I will definitely go on a big holiday with my Girlfriend.

Say hi!
