At Epic I worked on various projects creating assets for Paragon. I had to meet deadlines, communicate almost daily with my lead and team (verbally and written), attend dailies, game test, and more. My responsibilities were to follow document guidelines and concepts to create 3D assets using software like 3Dsmax, Zbrush, and export/import them into Unreal Engine. After creating the high and lowpoly models, I would then move onto creating PBR based textures for models. Other responsibilities included creating LOD's for main characters and environment assets.
