3D Character Artist

Hi!

Thank you for visiting!

About eleven years ago I did my transition from traditional clay-sculpting to digital art.

Ten years ago I got my first job in the games industry as a Character artist.

Since then I have worked with both games, films and advertisement.

I've worked on projects as Level artist, Character artist and Lead artist.

I have been employed by several game studios but also worked as a freelancer.

I am currently employed by Tarsier studios as Lead artist.

I can offer mentoring for the following goals:

- You want to become a 3D Character artist

(During my 10 years as a digital 3D artist I have spent roughly 70% as a character artist)

- You are currently familiar with traditional sculpting but would like to transition over to digital art.

(It's not as difficult as it might seem)

- You want to become Lead artist or if you just have become lead artist and need some support.

(This is my current role at Tarsier studios, in writing moment I have about 18 months of experience)

- You want to learn Zbrush

(Since my first job in the industry in 2007 Zbrush have been my favorite tool. This is where I do most of my work, Using Maya, Photoshop and Xnormal mainly as support)

If there is anything else you would like mentoring on that might fit my history and experience please don't hesitate to ask.
