In this segment, we are getting to know the people behind Fireroot Studios.
This time we give the stage to: Lisa Hanse


About me
Hey everyone! My name is Lisa Hanse and I’m a 3D artist at Fireroot studios. I’ve been working here since February 2020 and I also study/studied Game Art at Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht.

I’ve enjoyed drawing from a young age, mostly replicating pictures with pencils. When I started studying Game Art, I had no experience with 3D modeling whatsoever. The more I got into it though, the more I loved doing it. Right now I especially love sculpting in 3D, since it makes it a more open and creative process. This is mostly because I’m not constantly worrying about the technical side of 3D modeling, instead I feel more free in what I create.

Games
I obviously enjoy playing games a lot. My love for games started at a very young age, when I was playing games like the Sims, Zelda and Mario. 

I still really enjoy the games I mentioned, but I also love playing the Assassin’s Creed games, FarCry, twin stick shooters like The Binding of Isaac and Enter the Gungeon and I recently started getting into Battlefield 5. I play games on pc, Xbox One and on the Nintendo Switch. My joy for games isn’t limited to video games though,I also really enjoy a board game or a puzzle when I’m with friends or family.

Spare time
In my spare time I enjoy playing games, hanging out with my friends or my cat, riding my bike if the weather is nice, going shopping, going horseback riding (bonus points if I get to do that in a beautiful forest) and visiting museums and zoos.

I also like to work my side projects and do some 3D sculpting when I have some free time. 

Role
My job at Fireroot studios is to get every project to look really good, making the world and everything in it come to life. Ensure everything I create fits the style, doing a lot of research about anything and everything (moodboards, material studies, how does this thing work exactly?), coming up with ideas and making those ideas become reality with the assets I create.
