Upbeat community content creator, illustrator, and business owner! League Of Legends and Twitch partner, actively seeking other art-based partnership opportunities, jobs, or internships! Active on several social media outlets for gaming and creative sharing. I enjoy spreading knowledge about art and its uses in gaming!
Rin's Art shop is my own art business I've ran over the past 5 years. I create custom artworks, projects, and products for companies and clientele. I have worked with several manufactures to created desired products, while also managing my own time schedule, networking, social media outlets, websites, marketing, and communications. I am an advocate speaker about art and gaming in communities, which I discuss through the creation of my streams on twitch.tv. I broadcast to several hundred people every week, monetizing my brand, teaching individuals seeking knowledge of my profession, showing my progress of illustrations and products, all while working to create a safe, influential place for like minded creative and gaming individuals.
With several games under the NCWest branch, I helped with the content of each one before being assigned to Aion and Guild Wars 2. I generated graphic design, edited video content, created imagery as requested by the producers, and also generated copy, edits, and coding on almost all social content and blogs. Community sentiment was drafted weekly for the development team to discuss.
As a Social Media Manager for the Age of Empires Franchise at World's Edge, Microsoft, I utilize different tools to help ensure our community is entertained, happy, informed, and heard by the development team. I generate graphic design imagery and copy on almost all social content, specifically for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. I also create and edit video content and gifs around events and other notable items. Reporting on the voice of the community is drafted weekly with thoroughly detailed analytics through Sprout, and also by documenting commentary for the development team to discuss. My job also handles the newsletter, WordPress blog editing, and any other items I can help with as our team continues to deliver to the Age of Empires community.
I am a Contract Community Content Creator and Partner for ArenaNet, specifically for Guild Wars 2. I create artworks for mutual fans of the game to generate excitement and love of the characters and content. I have been hired to make illustrations for fans who won the raffle for the "Friend/Ships" campaign, and also made user profile icons for their forums. I have also worked with their partnered company, For Fans By Fans, to create several now officially licensed products that are sold on their website.
I have been hired several times by Riot Games to make custom illustrations for different events. I have made posters for PAX East 2016 and 2018, #MundoFace contest, Sugar Rush, and Season 2019 events. I am constantly doing new projects with them when our paths cross at different events, leading me to be a Contract Artist/Community Content Creator and Partner with them.
I created several emotes assets for the launch of the "food" channel on Twitch.tv. Two of these emotes became global and are used frequently; "StinkyCheese" and "NomNom". The next year, I was hired to make "FlipThis" global emote, which was later released as a special collectible enamel pin at Twitchcon 2017. These assets have been seen in StarCraft 2 as well, when Twitch partnered up with Blizzard for Prime benefits.
For Twitchcon 2017, I worked with Blizzard Entertainment with 7 other artists to create a live painting of their World of Warcraft Characters. We were split into groups of 4 for Horde and Alliance, painting on a large canvas together throughout the 3 day convention.
I created several different art assets for Wavedash Games, specifically for Icons: Arena. They were created and used for player icons and flair/sprays in game.
