Summary

Hi! I'm Chris! I'm a Senior Environment Artist / Associate Lead Artist in the games industry!

I've been in the industry for about 10 years, so I've been around working with all kinds of games. I specialize in World-Building and I'm also a professional mentor and have been mentoring young artists for about 2 years now.

Apart from everything that comes with the Senior & Lead Roles of Environment Art, I tend to align myself heavily on the tech-side of things. During my spare time I try to make myself into a one-man army game-developer, focusing on programming and making my own games.

My current list of shipped AAA-titles are:

- Motorstorm Apocalypse + DLC (PS3)
- Wipeout 2048 + DLC (Playstation Vita)
- Far Cry 3 + DLC (PC, Xbox 360, PS3)
- The Division + DLC (PS4/XONE/PC)
- The Division 2 : Warlords of New York Expansion (PS4/XBONE/PC)

  • Level Artist at Massive Entertainment - A Ubisoft Studio
    Malmö, Sweden
    August 2011 - December 2012

    My main responsibilites as a level artist for the FC3 CO-OP campaign was to be responsible for the general look and feel of the levels, bringing them from blockout to full working levels together with prop artists and level designers.

    Specific responsibilities includes:

    Terraforming:

    The shaping and texturing of the terrain.

    General Dressing:

    The placement of props, buildings, trees, bushes, rocks etc.

    Composition:

    Bringing it all together for beautiful key-shot locations in every part of the level.

    Optimizing:

    Making sure the level ran at the target frame-rate. Helping out designers to make sure we had proper occlusion and following basic culling principles.

    Lighting:

    FC3 COOP had no assigned lighting artist so the responsibility was placed on each Environment Artist to light their own levels. All lights and (at times lightmaps) were placed and created by me.

    In all I was responsible for three levels of the co-op campaign including the DLC. Though there were times I had to help out on other levels, but in game-development everybody has a hand in everything.
