My Role: 
Art Direction, Concept Art, Visual Development, Illustration, Background Art, User Interface Art

While at Scopely, I had the opportunity to work on some really awesome projects. One of them being the digital take on the classic boardgame: Yahtzee. My role and responsibilities encompassed everything from directing artists on external teams to creating character and background art for our in game mechanics including challengable “Dice Masters,” purchasable vanity dice, and vanity portraits.

Thematic Approaches

At Scopely, we engaged our audience and fan base regularly in game using different towers of challengable Dice Masters. These in-game challenges were incentiviced with custom vanity dice only attainable by defeating a tower of Dice Masters. These thematic approaches required a lot of design and art support, and included concept ideation, concept art, character illustration, interface art, and background art.
