Personal project 2023

At first, I really want to show you my personal work which I do in my free time !

I loved doing this project. It allowed me to put into practice what I learned in parallel at school specifically hand paint. I had a lot of fun and it was quite relaxing to do this in Unreal Engine 5.

Concept made by artbyjulia


This game was create on Unreal Engine 5. We had 5 months from January to May 2023.

I have the pleasure to present you the last work of my graduation project of New3dge, Aqua Heroes. I worked on this Project as an environment artist. I was the Environment artist who work on the TopCity above thes clouds. I was in charge of the modelization, the texturing and assembly.

In this game, a team of 4 children are fighting mechanical monsters who are invading the planet, with their favorite water weapons.

Our challenge on this project is to adapt a 2D concept to a 3D game ready. You can see my work and the concept given to me above.

I made the final texture of the ground when the boss die 

The texture of the ground was made on Substance Designer

I made some simple tech and specific shader for the door, lights and fans.

The wind and the trails was made with the same shader and is controlled with Niagara


This game is is a MOBA-type game in top-down perspective, inspired by Egyptian funerary mythology.

Our challenge was to create a playable game demo, on Unreal Engine 5. We had 4 months from September to December 2022.

I worked on this Project as an environment artist. I was the Environment artist who work on the arena called Nil Dam, my heavenly vision of the afterlife. I was in charge of the modelization, the texturing, natural ressources and assembly.
