Deborah is a very talented 2D game artist, creating all kinds of art at Concrete Software for over four years. She received her Illustration degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) and joined our team shortly after. Deborah adds spunk to our company with her high energy and creativity (and little bit of San Antonio sass). In her spare time she enjoys playing basketball and floor hockey with her friends and cuddling up with her adorable puggle Sandji.
At Concrete Software Deborah creates characters, backgrounds, textures, and attractive promotional artwork for our games. Here are just a few of the Aces Cribbage characters she created!
Although Deborah loves creating 2D art for all of the games, Arctic Cat Extreme Snowmobile Racing is Deborah’s favorite because she thinks it’s one of Concrete’s most fun games. “There’s also so much room for new content in Arctic Cat and it’s so much fun making new sleds and levels for it,” she says. Deborah creates just about all of the artwork in the game and has been the lead artist since the game’s initial design.
While Deborah certainly knows her 2D art, she finds herself learning new things every day. “I’m still constantly learning and that’s what I really like about this job is that I have to keep up. I have to continue learning programs, like Zbrush and Maya.” Deborah is also adding 3D to her list of skills at Concrete. She says, “3D is not something that comes naturally to me, so as a professional I have to learn 3D and all that software as part of my skill-set”. To other aspiring artists Deborah says, “Keep your skillset up-to-date. Make yourself valuable!”
