Hello, I'm Zara Nelson and I've been studying MA at Escape Studios. I'm very passionate about making materials for games. I love the Substance suite and being able to create 3D looking objects with just Designer. I would love to start off as an environment artist and then find a job as a material artist.


Describe yourself in 5 words.

Sweet, Friendly, Happy, Motivated and Free.

If you were an animal, which one would you be? and why?

I'd be a shapeshifting animal so I could turn into any animal which matched my mood on that day.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

There are two projects I've worked on that were drafted by the Rookies. It showed me that hard work really pays off.

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

From always being around my teammates to not being around them at all. Normally I'd hang out with them after hours but because of the pandemic we only had meetings together. We tackled this by creating movie nights and game nights so we could get to socialise and bond.

Would you rather be a wizard, Jedi or superhero? and why?

A Wizard because I could transform a Jedi or a Superhero into a frog and no one would be able to stop me.

If you woke up in a in a videogame, what would your special ability be?

The ability to gain more abilities as I progress through the game. Like Skyrim.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

When I first started Escape, I had no clue how to make a game and now I do. I am proud of how far I've come.
