Hey, who are you?

I’m Chelsea Saunders (or PIXELATEDCROWN) - I make games and game-type things! My real world location is mostly the UK, but can sometimes be the US.

Okay, what've you been up to?

  • Finished studying Games Technology at the University at the West of England then aimed to make a small game each month for a while to teach myself Unity and Maya.
  • Worked freelance and then full time for Google, first for the Android Experiments team to make Kintsukuroi (a free mobile game) and then full time with the Google Doodle team. I worked on the 2017 Valentine's day Google Doodle! You can play it here, at the top of the page.
  • I left Google in 2017 to try and make something of my own. I've since started a Patreon where I post a monthly newsletter that covers everything I've worked on that month! Sometimes I take on freelance work, like the 3D illustrations I did for Bloomberg in this article.
 

 

Cool. What can you do?

I'm fairly comfortable with most aspects of game development but here're what I feel are my strongest points:

3D Modelling, Rigging, and Animation
     - Experienced in both props, characters and environment modelling
     - Low poly, untextured & vertex coloured / Mid poly with painted textures

2D Concept Art and Spritework
     - Character, costume, creature, environment  and level design concept work
     - Flat colour vector-like illustration / Chunky pixel art with strict palettes 

Very confident with
     - Unity with C#/JS Scripting
     - 3D Modelling software such as Maya and 3D-Coat
     - Image creation/editing software such as Photoshop, Flash, Paint Tool SAI
