RÉSUMÉ

My main skills are illustration and concept art and these are activities that I always come back to, even for leisure.
I thoroughly enjoy being in a management position and have been an Art Director on project Aurora and a combined Team Lead/Art Director and Vision Holder on The Watcher. During my internship at metricminds I was in charge of setting up a new project for the company complete with research, concept art and a business plan.
Over the course of the years I have also worked on 3d modelling, sculpting, texturing and creating shaders in the Unreal Engine.
I work very well in a team, I am sociable and can also be an independent, hard worker.

ABOUT ME

My name is Jitske Habekotté. I was born in 1992 in Delft in the Netherlands.

After two years of medical school and one year of behavioral sciences I found my true passion and started studying Game Art at the NHTV in Breda where I graduated Cum Laude in 2018 with two final grades of 10/10.

I have a great enthusiasm for making things look beautiful and different. I have always been drawing as well as painting and have thoroughly enjoyed making both digital and traditional art. Experimenting with colours and shapes has helped me greatly when making concepts for projects. At the NHTV I learned to work professionally both in 3D and in 2D. I also really enjoy being in a management role. I have experience with being a team leader and I was a proficient Art Director on two recent projects ("The Watcher" & "Aurora"). During my internship at metricminds I set up a completely new project for the company, complete with business plan and concept art, which is currently in the preproduction stage.

Games and other entertainment projects that mean a lot to me have beautiful visuals and a tendency to be very story oriented. I would love nothing more than to help a team envision projects like these. I believe our industry has the potential to bring about strong emotions and inspire new ideas or visions through our work. It would be a shame not to utilize this to the fullest.
