THE TEAM

This team began as 5 but eventually grew to over 30 artists including Character, Environment, and Prop artists. 

THE WORK

My team was tasked with taking a range of assets from the blockout through texturing, by combining traditional sculpting and modeling techniques, with new workflows and programs such as Substance Designer.
