- Game Description

Project Beasts is a USC Games 2019 Advanced Games Project directed by Michelle Olson.


As a concept artist, I focus on designing the magical creatures that inhabit the island as well as the main character, Marina. I also assist with the 3D pipeline with lo-poly models, illustrating alpha cards, UV painting, and texturing.
