Interested in being a video game designer?

The computer graphics and digital arts program at Springfield College can show you how to make the magic.

Want an iPad? We want your best game character drawing as a concept drawing, digital image, or 3-D model, which will be judged by experts in the field. 

The rules are simple: Send a simple JPG of your work to (with subject line: Artwork for Game Lab by "your name") by Oct. 29 and we'll print it out. Or, arrive with a full-color drawing, mixed-media image, or print. Your work will be judged on concept, visual skill, and gameness. The artist of the winning piece will be awarded an iPad. Individuals must be present to win.
