hire me

Hello! My name is Pol Clarissou, would you like to hire me

You might know my work from NUTS, Vignettes and Orchids to Dusk, or some of my other interactives. That beautiful talent could be yours! Hire me!!

I am open to contract work and/or a longer-term hire. I am an EU citizen with a permanent visa for Canada, fluent in English and French.

Here are examples of things i can do for you and your projects:

Hire me to do art direction and production in small teams

My experience is primarily in very small teams (2-5 people). I prefer to be working directly with engine implementation and rendering rather than external asset-making. My work typically involves a dialogue between basic modelling, shader-making and scenography / composition; whether on my own or collaborating within an art team.
I favor bold visual directions with an attention to the efficiency and flexibility of the production process.

These are screenshots from NUTS. I was the main artist on the project and handled all art except for the integration of the outline effect (by Freya and Ronja) and squirrel modeling/animation (by Kalonica).

These are screenshots from Vignettes, for which i made all art from concept to production and integration.

These are screenshots from my solo game Orchids to Dusk.

These are screenshots from a pitch prototype by Toptstitch Games, for which i did a quick turnaround art pass (all environment including basic concept, modeling, materials/shaders and integration).

This is a Skyrim mod replacing all the vegetation sprites with custom made doodly variants.

These are test scenes made in Unity using Doodle Studio 95 and Unity's terrain system for foliage support.

Hire me to create illustrations and 2D sprites

(or even comics if that's your jazz! that's what i dabbled into prior to games)

Hire me to create music videos, visualizers or ingame VFX

I have experience with both particle systems and shaders (using node-based shader editors) in Unity, which allow me to create interactive music videos, web-based experiences, dynamic VJ material, etc. in addition to ingame effects.

I was the primary artist behind games NUTS and Vignettes and drove their art direction throughout development.

I handled a change in art direction in one of Arcturus's projects (proposed a new lore and style guide, selected external R&D artists and handled back and forth with them, compiled the new art deck). Bottom right concept art by Erwin Kho.
