    Working professionally with 3+ years of experience, I focus on projects centered around Animation, Design, and Illustrations. Throughout the years, I’ve noticed that this is a highly sought out combination for companies and clients looking for a well-rounded designer to do the tasks they need done. Because of this, I like to consider myself a bit of a Visual Magician. Anything related to the creative process, I'll work my magic ✨

    I have worked over twenty years in sales, in positions from sales rep to management and now as an export agent for the internationally known engineering company, WFEC. Under the pseudonym "Corvaena" I have developed multiple games, commissioned digital art, and authored interactive fiction stories that have hundreds of thousands of reads. My experience in game development ranges from Ren'Py to publishing on story apps to creating a custom visual novel engine in Godot (2D) with a Ren'Py inspired custom DSL and bone animated characters.

    Strengths/Skills: - Well developed understanding of 3D space - Creative, innovative mind - Ask me how to do something, and I'll have at least 2-3 possible routes to accomplish that. - Good vision for aesthetically pleasing visuals - Good communication Some History: - Game character visual makeover: - The client had a character they needed retopologized (this is the process of taking a 3D model with poor topology, and restructuring it. This is convenient for the sake of texturing, animating, etc.) I came up with a couple ways I could accomplish this, chose one, and then spent about an hour or two on that process. The client also wanted their model textured, and they said they were looking for a sort of brightly colored, eye-catching look. So I UV unwrapped the newly retopologized model, and spent 2, maybe 3 hours texturing it. The client was so happy they left me a 5 star review!!! (Thank you!!!) - My education - Since I was about 12 (2016), I've been toying around with Blender. I've spent hours and hours watching Blender Guru's tutorials on YouTube, learning the many complexities of materials, texturing, modeling, rendering, post processing, and some animating. I actually killed my old 2009 Toshiba laptop trying to render a fire simulation (it said it would take it 3 years to complete, and then one morning it just died). - In my junior year of high school, I went to a sort of trade school that taught digital art/game design. We spent the first semester learning 3DS Max, alongside Photoshop for texturing and image editing. We spent the second semester in Unity and Visual Studio. While I enjoyed our programming sessions, I still find that my strength is in 3D/Digital art. Programs I Use: - Blender - GIMP
