    I'm interested in Game Art Design, but I am not sure what category it falls under. I'm so confused... Can someone lend me a hand? [​IMG]

    Developers code and designers plan don't they?

    Game Developer's acctually make the game and can be split between coding, artwork, music, storyline
    Game Designer's generally plan out the game how it should look, how certain things happen this is also split but usually only between artwork and storyline.

    Hope i've helped

    Game designer is like a movie director.
    Developers as I see it include programmers, graphic designers, composers, story script writer, etc.

    Designer decides which part to cut if they run out of time or space, overall look and feel including control scheme and stuff, and more.
