For NBA2K21 I rejoined the UI Team as a remote contractor in February of 2020 and ended up being the template for the studio on how to best work from home once the lockdowns started from the pandemic.
For both 2K21 & 22 I joined around the same time, February, and joined at the tail end of the look dev process and primarily helped ramp up production and produce as many screens as possible before the game launched.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to help create the assets for the MyTeam card game portion of the game, doing high resolution modeling and sculpting in Cinema4D and baking down to low res in-game models and creating material maps in Substance Painter.
I also worked to create the motion style for various elements.
Although the team worked under extremely difficult conditions, we managed to finish NBA2K21 out on time to be a launch title for the PS5 and XBox Series X and even managed to meet our normal annual release time of a September release for 2K22.
