Hi, I'm Devin Alan! (they/them)
I'm a game dev graduate student from Saxion University.
During my study, I gained experience in multiple artistic categories such as character design, 2D art, UI/UX design, texturing, and animation. I have a degree in graphic and advertisement design, which I finished in 2015.
My bachelor thesis focused on gender-inclusive character customization and how to improve this experience for trans and gender diverse people. If you'd like to know more about this, I'd be happy to showcase my paper.
I've always enjoyed designing characters and stories. Throughout my study, I developed a strong dedication for 2D art and animation. I enjoy taking part in a project's creative process and improving my skills with new challenges.
Growing up I spent a lot of my time with my dad, playing everything from board games to video games like Baldur's Gate, The Sims, and a ton of point-and-click adventures!
Nowadays I enjoy narrative-driven games that take the player on a journey. I'm a huge fan of cartoons and animated movies, too!
A few of my favorite games include Deponia, Portal, Detroit become human, Night In The Woods, and Monster Camp. Some of my favorite cartoons and movies are Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, Edward Scissorhands, Over the garden wall, Hilda, Coraline, and Spirited Away.
I love traveling and have worked in Ireland for a while. In my free time, I mostly draw and play DnD and other Pen and Papers.
I am eager to improve my current skills and work hard on myself.
Have a grand day! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
