Hello, I'm Dean Bottino.

I'm an artist. I have experience in graphic design, creating 3D environmental art and props for games, pixel art and animation for 2D games, t-shirt design, and creating websites (including the portfolio you're looking at right now).

I was the lead artist for Camera Obscura, a computer game developed independently at the University of California at Irvine. This game is currently being reviewed for release on the Steam platform as a commercial title.

As you can see, I have a fond nostalgia for the aesthetics of old video games. I like blocks, bright colors, and corners. Although I'm well versed in many visual styles, whenever I get the chance I love to incorporate this look into my work.

My latest work

Below are links to a few examples of my latest work. You can also see the rest of my work at the links at the top of the page.

This portfolio includes pixel art and animation I've done for 2D games, videos that I've edited and done special effects and animation for, print and t-shirt designs I've sold, as well as models and textures I've made for 3D games. I've made the games that I've worked on available for purchase or download here as well.

Please also visit my Society6 store if you would like to purchase some of my designs on a variety of products like phone cases, shirts, bedspreads and more!
