Dev Profile: Sigbjørn “Siggy” Galåen - MMORPG.com

Every month, we feature a new member of Funcom's Age of Conan team in the form of a Developer Profile. This month, it's Sigbjørn “Siggy” Galåen, the Technical Art Director for Age of Conan.

MMORPG.com:

Besides games what other influences brought you into your career? Whether it is books, movies, or artwork everyone has different tastes, tell us about yours.

Sigbjørn “Siggy” Galåen:

I was very much into comics during my teen years, and I used to read every issue of the Conan comic that was published here in Norway. I also bought US fantasy mags, such as “Heavy Metal”, as well as various art books. I was just as much aiming for a career as a fantasy artist / illustrator, as considering computer game development. Reading mags about computer games taught me a few things about development, while I still had this just as a hobby. I was also a part of a demo group, which was further inspiring for making computer visuals and technical effects. Movies were influential, as I enjoyed especially horror and sci-fi movies with creatures and special effects.
