I'm a concept artist with a background in traditional animation who picked up 3d modelling for environment art, characters, a bit of rigging, 3d animation and vfx - along with engine implementation. I have about 5 years of experience working in games for both AAA and mobile, but a few more used to be spent working in comics, music videos, tv commercials and short films. Learning new software and finding new ways to do things is pretty fun when I'm solving problems with designers and engineers.
Responsibilities as a game artist are to create 2d/3d assets for both characters and environments which also include rigging, animation, vfx and game engine implementation.
As of recent projects I have been taking on an art lead role and also helped create the art direction.
