As Character Art Lead I spend my time at MachineGames bringing digital actors to life and pushing the state of the art of storytelling in games. My work involves designing workflows, simulating garments, sculpting digital models, building hard surface accessories, directing outsourcing partners, integrating third party assets and setting up PBR-materials and shaders.
