Get to Know a Developer: Bill Yeatts -

SOE has released a dev profile of EverQuest II Art Director and Character Lead, Bill Yeatts.

How did you become a game artist? Can you tell us about what path you took?

I got my art degree from a junior college in traditional 2 dimension design/painting. I meddled with digital art here and there during school then eventually got an internship. A year after I graduated, I finally landed a full time spot. 17 years later I ended up here at SOE doing what I love, making games.

Did you ever think you'd end up as a game artist?

No, I didn't even think art was a valid career beyond illustration.

I am glad I was wrong.

Which of these was your first love: games or art?

Games. I have always been a crazy gamer. I love computer games, online games, pen and paper role playing games, card games… you name it, I probably like playing it.
