Martina Thuresson

Artist, PlaygroundSquad 2018


My name is Martina Thuresson, I’m a 33 year old graphic artist from Karlskrona with a longstanding interest for art. Durring my time at PlaygroundSquad, I chose to specialize in props and hard-surface object. But I also have a long experience in 2D art which has been a hobby of mine since childhood.

I spent my LIA at the studio Pixelbie in Helsingborg, where I mainly made props for the third chapter in mobile game, Space Marshals 3. But also created concept art for them at time. 

My main experience with 3D is with programs like Blender, Substance Painter and Photoshop. But I have also used programs like Maya and Mudbox.

When it comes to games, I'm a huge Nintendo fan who enjoy game series such as Legend of Zelda, Super Mario and Pokemon. I also like to play PC games from time to time such as World of Warcraft and Ghost of a Tale. Another hobby of mine is to write and illustrate stories.

If you have any question or feedback, feel free to contact me at:


Game project 1: Elemental showdown

For this project I took part in creating concepts, as well as coming up with the design for the characters that would later be used in the game. Later on in production I would do modeling, texturing and animate two of the characters and create the spawn points.

Game project 2: Crit-out!

On this one, I took part in creating concepts for the environment, logos, signs and props. I later on modeled and textured many of the neon-signs seen in the game, as well as a few of the buildings. I also helped with placing out one of the districts of the city.
