America's Next Top Model Finalist Leaps Into Game Art

The video game industry is reaching its ever-lengthening fingers across many different entertainment venues these days, and that includes modeling. No, not 3D or artistic modeling; actual modeling with real, breathing, red-blooded babes.

If you're not familiar with Heather Kuzmich, here's your introduction. A top 5 finalist from Cycle 9 of America's Next Top Model, she has overcome the restrictions of Asperger's Syndrome and become a much sought-after model. Better yet for gamers: she has enrolled in a video game art design program at the Illinois Institute of Art. Recently interviewed by Voodoo PC founder Rahul Sood, Kuzmich talks about her transition to the gaming world:

"To be honest, I always wanted to do something that included art and creating stuff with my hands. At first I wanted to get into costume design, but that soon changed to game design, especially since I frigging love games and love doing weird designs for characters."

Kuzmich is a definite gamergirl it seems, as she mentions the likes of Resident Evil, Final Fantasy VII, Prince of Persia, and Knights of the Old Republic as being some of her all-time favorite titles. For the full interview, head on over to Sood's blog and check it out. That's one very pretty girl, and the fact that she's voluntarily pursuing work in the games industry only proves one thing: ...oh, we won't repeat it again. But if you think hot chicks have no place in the creation process of games, you need to step into the current year.
