The art director also provides leadership for how the user interface (UI) will be inte-
grated into the game. Again, storyboards can be used to work out how each UI screen
should look and function. The end result should be consistent with the look and feel
of the game, and provide the user intuitive access to and control of in-game functions.
Additionally, the art director has responsibility for the overall memory and polygon
budgets for the game art. Once the various game scenes and UI screens are worked
out, art tasks are listed in detail and assigned to individual artists, along with specific
memory and polygon budgets for each task.
