Well in advance of graduation, Becker College game design student William Parker, from Shrewsbury, Mass., was in the running for “Boston Visual Artist of the Year” in 2013. Parker’s ZBrush sculptures, character designs that can be used in video games or film, are on display at http://www.rawartists.org/boston/rawards2013.
After submitting his work to the RAW Boston Encompass Showcase, Parker was invited to enter his work in the fifth annual RAW Indie Arts Awards competition. He moved from the top five nominees to the top three. Parker set his sights on earning the top slot at the RAWards semifinals in Boston, which would put him in competition for the “National Visual Artist of the Year,” to be held in Los Angeles.

A student teaching assistant in game design, Parker plans to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in interactive media design and an understanding of the processes involved in designing character and environmental assets for video games or film. He plans to move into a career that focuses on modeling and sculpting within this industry. His artwork can be used in a variety of ways, from a fine rendered image or transferred into a film or video game and brought to life through animation. His website is www.krop.com/williamparker.
