Firefall

I’ve had the pleasure to work on the game Firefall at Red 5 Studios with some of the most talented artists in the games industry. Under the tutelage of our art lead Jonathan Ryder I learned new art techniques, and further developed my design process. Firefall is a special project to me because it really challenged my design skills. At Red 5 we really strove to hit the right proportions of form and detail to maintain our anime inspired aesthetic, and the concept team had to work as one to fulfill the vision of the game. Fortunately Red 5 is full of passionate people that made it a real pleasure to work at. The game has a really fun and well thought out art style and I very much enjoyed working within the Firefall world.
