The Army provides you with the training, experience and knowledge that will allow you to go from your military service into a civilian job, without pausing for additional training or the need for a college degree.
Army Computer Graphics & Computer Illustration
Army computer graphic designers and computer graphic illustrators not only provide graphic illustrations for publications like newspapers, posters and other print items. Graphic designers also provide the graphics used in military recruitment films and broadcast news productions.
One of the exciting areas that is opening for computer graphic illustrators is the development of computer gaming technology for illustrations and simulations that are used for training in the Army today. With so many young people becoming familiar with computer video games, the military has decided to use this technology for training purposes and as a recruitment tool. The end result is that there are many opportunities for a computer graphic illustrator with artistic and illustrative talents.
