Short Essay: Discovered Wildfire Games while browsing game development online. Having playing games like Age of Empires and Stronghold when I was younger, now having a chance to contribute to that genre is very exciting. I also hope to gain experience with working on another project, and other people. Which will help me to build my portfolio.

Interests and Hobbies: Gaming and watching movies are two of my biggest hobbies (shock!). I’m also enjoying a new love of board games recently, like Game of Thrones Risk and Sheriff of Nottingham. I also play some sports which take up most of my weekend in the summer. So when I want to relax, I read a good book. I’m currently hooked on the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

Staff: I don’t know and staff.

Community: I look at polycount occasionally but browse through 80lv most frequently. I’ve discovered tech-Artists.org which interests me most, as I’m currently learning C++ and have some experience in Python scripting in Maya.

Favorite Game: Currently it’s God of War, I really enjoyed the character development of Kratos. But for nostalgia value, Pokémon Yellow on my Gameboy. I took it everywhere with me.

Work Examples: The video links are from my student work at University, using a pbr workflow. While the images below are from ‘A Tale in the Desert’, which is non-pbr.

Vegetation would be nice :)

You could start with doing papyrus sprites. We generally use planes to do vegetation. You can find a more complete list of specific trees we need there -> 

 (Flora Section)

Else you could try to fix existing trees. 

Have you downloaded the game source yet ?
