Interview with 3D Artist, Josh

We interviewed one of our awesome 3D artists, Josh!


Her Interactive: How long have you worked at Her Interactive?

Josh: It will be 6 years this July.

Her Interactive: How did you get into the game industry?

Josh: I’ve had a game system in my home since I can remember, so it’s always been an interest of mine. I took every chance I had to work around games. The art aspect always interested me the most, and I loved drawing, so when I had the chance, I decided to move out West and go to art school. After graduating, a friend of mine told me about a possible 3 month contract at Her Interactive for localization. I jumped at the chance to finally work at a video game company, and one thing lead to another. So after the contract, I stuck around!

Her Interactive: What was your favorite environment to work on?

Josh: The courtyard in The Captive Curse is one of my favorites. I just really liked the setting – nice and moody. At least, I hope it turned out that way!

Her Interactive: Is there an environment you’d like to create in the future?

Josh: I have always admired the architecture in London, so maybe a London street during the Victorian period.

Her Interactive: Name one environment and/or object you created and tell us a little about it.

Josh: Well I don’t want to say too much about TMB, but I did make the scene that shows up on the title screen that’s been shown. I don’t want to give away anything, but… things happen in there!

Her Interactive: If you were the main character of a video game, who would you be and what is your story or mission?

Josh: I would probably be a Knight, and have to go on a long quest to save the world! That’s what most video game artists do on their off time.

Her Interactive: If you could travel to any place, either real or fictional, where would it be? What would you do there?

Josh: I’d have to go to one of the worlds from a Final Fantasy game. Once there, I would have to learn some magic and try not to set myself on fire.

Her Interactive: What is your favorite movie?

Josh: Transformers: The Movie, the animated one from 1986. I watched it about 200 times as a kid, and will probably never watch another movie that many times. I also have transformers covering my desk here.

Thanks Josh for creating those awesome environments, we are looking forward to seeing all of your work in Tomb of the Lost Queen!
