Have you seen all the beautiful illustrations of Delicious – Emily’s Hopes and Fears on Facebook? Amazing…aren’t they?! Before sharing my images on Facebook, our artist draws many sketches to get the perfect piece of art. Because some sketches are already so amazing, I created an Instagram account to share those. Today, I would like to introduce Lisanne to you; she’s the one who makes all illustrations and sketches for Facebook and Instagram!
What’s your name? Lisanne
What is your job? 2D artist at Gamehouse Europe
Best thing about being an artist? The best thing is that I do what I love most for a living, really. Drawing and art for me are part of everyday life just as much as breathing is; I can’t even imagine a life where I wouldn’t be drawing! That I can actually make a living off of it is amazing. What I love about art overall is that I have an outlet for all the characters that run around in my head, and their stories. I love drawing people, and I love telling stories! What’s very cool about working as an artist is meeting many people who like the same thing, which can lead to very cool collaborations and awesome friendships!
Most awesome drawing you ever made? It tends to vary for me, because it’s usually one of my latest drawings that I like the most and I have a lot of personal artwork that I’m very proud of. If we’re talking Delicious only then it’s usually the quick sketches. I love sketching and I tend to like them more than the finished products. I’m also really happy with the drawing of Tapeesa’s baby, and the one where Emily reads Paige a bedtime story. Also, the D12 trailer where poor Paige is in the hospital!
What do you like about Delicious? The games themselves are very addictive, hehe. Unlike a lot of other games, Delicious tells a real story: there are a lot of memorable characters and that is super fun to work with. It hits you right in the feels! 😀
Who is your favorite Delicious character? Paige for sure! She’s super adorable and I really have a lot of fun drawing her because little kids are so expressive: you can get away with drawing movements and expressions super exaggerated. Also, it was fun coming up with ideas for what she would look like as she grew from a baby into a cute little girl; Emily for example has a more or less steady design already but Paige’s design is still developing as she ages; who knows what she will look like in the future!
What Delicious game do you like most, and why? Probably Hopes and Fears! I love the adventurous mood of it: finally Patrick gets his moment in the spotlight, and of course the stakes are very high because Paige is so sick.
Career highlight? I really loved working on the trailer for Delicious 12.
What is your favorite film of all times? It would be impossible to pick just one; I have a million films that I love!
If you could time-travel, where would you go? If I could time travel, I’d be all over the world! It’s not so much places I would visit, but people, really. There are so many interesting historical figures; I’d want to meet some of them first hand.
