Art Lead
Responsible for leading and managing an amazing team of artists to maintain a visual style while hitting performance budgets. During my time on the project I created 3D models and textures, created art style guides, held, and engaged in meetings with artists and other team leads, created vignettes, and assisted level designers. A large portion of my work shown is here is my contribution to the environment art of level 1.

Level one was designed by Konstantinos Tzinas and you can see his breakdown of the level before the art pass here: https://www.konstantinos-tzinas.com/keepersofthetrees
