Greetings and well met!

 

My name is Dara Potocska. I currently work as a Quality Assurance Tester for ArenaNet on their AAA MMORPG, Guild Wars 2! Previously, I was studying for a degree in Early Childhood Education at Tidewater Community College and worked as a clerk for a small accounting office. I have an A.A.S. Degree in Graphic Design for Computer Art, and an Occupational Degree in Animation and Visual Effects. My many hobbies include playing video games, photography, creating parody songs, writing fanfiction, and watching Japanese animation.

The intent for this website is to act as a central location for my portfolio, resume, and hobbies. As I work on building the site, expect to see content such as the samples below. Enjoy!

Image is from "Creepers," an animated short I worked on during my time at the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School (DAVE School). I worked on the environment in the short. I created the mushrooms, textures on the tree, mushrooms and grass, and did the lighting in the shot.

Bye Bye Guild Wars 1 is a parody song I put together on request from friends on Twitter in the Guild Wars community. As the MMO Guild Wars 2 approached, they wanted a song that would bring together all the good memories they had of the first game.

This video was created based off of content in the online role-playing game, Guild Wars 2. The game has been introducing new story every month and with this new segment, some of the characters had some really awesome lines that captured my attention. I put together this fan trailer based on the new content.
