I'm a 3D Stylised Environment Artist with a strong 2D background. I enjoy hand-painting textures and creating vibrant, quirky assets! I would love to partake in projects where I can expand on my art-style or even learn new ones to further push myself as an artist.

GET TO KNOW HESSA

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Adventurous, charismatic, sincere, proactive and amiable.

What three things would you take to a desert island and why?

A very large sketchbook and some pencils to pass the time, as well as a knife to sharpen said pencils.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself in a Mid-to-Senior position as an Environment Artist within a Studio I've been working at for a couple years. I also see myself with 3 cats.

Describe a challenge that you had to overcome in your group projects.

Honestly, one of the bigger challenges I had was having the courage to ask my group members for help. I felt like I needed to be seen as self sufficient and to know everything but I learned over the past two group projects that it's okay to ask for help, as it will help everyone in the end create a great project.

Which game inspired you the most to choose this career path and why/how?

I've always loved the wonky art style and lighting of Blinx: The Time Sweeper. It's a two-decades-old Xbox title, but I'd like to think Blinx was the start of my curiosity into Environment Art.

What video game character best embodies you and why?

GLaDOS from the Portal series, because I enjoy experimenting and problem-solving. I'm also partial to some Black Forest cake.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

My third year specialism project gave me so much confidence in myself and my work - it's probably one of my favourite pieces of art I've made to date. If I didn't do as well as I did, I think I would have struggled both creatively and technically on my final group project, which also turned out amazingly.
