In the mid 90s, Sharon Shellman decided that she disliked the corporate world, and that she wanted to be an artist. She taught herself some 3-D packages, and was employed as a contract artist on Fallout. She worked on several major cut scenes for the game including the Exiting the Vault, Dipped in the Mutant Vats, and Blowing up the Mutant Vats, and several characters, including Dogmeat, the deathclaw, the brahmin and Mr. Handy. After completing Fallout, Shellman went to work for Blizzard. At Blizzard she helped make cut scenes for both StarCraft and Broodwar.
