d3t welcomes Katie Humes, Character Artist
16th Nov 2021
Please detail a bit of information about your experience/career background?
I graduated university in 2015 and began my career in the games industry as an Environment Artist. I never stopped chasing my dream of being a Character Artist and made the change early this year.
d3t offers such a huge array of games to work on. Different styles, different genres, and getting to work with lots of different companies all around the world. There’ll always be something fresh, new, and exciting coming down the pipeline to be a part of.
What do you love about games?
I love stories. I love that you can get completely immersed in a whole new world with its own motivations, conflicts and characters. Games are so unique in that they bring the boundless imagination of books and the breath-taking visuals of movies together in one experience. And an experience that you can enjoy with friends too!
What games are you currently playing, and what is your favourite game?
I have recently been playing the Diablo 2 remaster, but I’m thinking of also getting into the Darkest Dungeon 2 early access. I’m also very much looking forward to the new Animal Crossing content!
In terms of my favourite games, they will have to be: Final Fantasy 10, Witcher 3 and Divinity Original Sin 2.
Do you have any fun facts or hobbies?
I love to make things! Knitting, painting, clay sculpting, you name it! I also love to bake but I’m absolutely terrible at it.
I am obsessed with all things Dungeons and Dragons and am usually found sculpting something whilst listening to a grizzly true crime podcast.
