Devon Fay

Lead Artist at Riot Games

After graduating from the Gnomon School of VFX, Devon Fay started his career in Blizzard Entertainment's film department. He began working on matte-painted environments for projects such as Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Devon continued his work at Blizzard as a Matte Painting Lead for Diablo III, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria and Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm. While constantly seeking new challenges and techniques, he decided to transfer his career to real-time environments for games. Currently, Devon is working at Infinity Ward as a Senior Environment Artist, working on such games as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Coming full circle, he has returned to the Gnomon School as an online instructor, bringing his unique perspectives to environment creation, drawing from his experience in both pre-rendered and in-game environments.
