I am a Game Design major with a minor in Computer Science hoping to enter the gaming industry after college with the goal of creating games to bring joy to others. Ideally I would like to work for a mid to large gaming company such as Blizzard or Gears for Breakfast and work in either Programming or 3D animation. Recently I have gained an interest in creating 2D art and have been creating various characters in my free time. When I'm not drawing I am typically playing a video game or watching online animations. I also really enjoy listening to music, specifically songs found in various games. Whenever a new game comes out, I often spend hours upon hours delving into both the written and unwritten story that developers create. I always find it fascinating how many little details most players miss that designers implement to further expand the world without forcing it down the players throat. I do post various art and designs I create on my Twitter (@cashmerjesse) and Instagram (great_paprika). I hope that after I graduate, I can step into the world of gaming as a programmer or animator to create games for many people to enjoy.
Ends of Voids
While anticipating the release of Kingdom Hearts III, I drew an original concept based on the main weapon from the series known as the Keyblade. This variant is titled End of Voids which in reference to the backstory an original character of mine and is stylized off of nebulas for their color.
This piece originally started with a joke between friends on what would happen if two characters who cannot get drunk had a drinking contest. The character on the left is Kirby, a being whose main gimmick is being able to swallow anything with no negative reproduction. The character on the right is a Terrarian based on Terraria's Calamity mod, a person who is immune to becoming drunk.
Dr. I.V. Paprika
Dr. I.V. Paprika is a co-created original character based around the concept of having so much plot armor, they become immune to it. This variant is before he gaining the plot resistance and his role as a scientist creating a duel Particle Accelerator/Hadron Collider in an attempt to unite the planet.
