    3D artist/animator -3DSMax,Vray,Maxscript,Zbrush,Photoshop

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 30

    3D obsessive seeks work to make the screaming stop at night. Expansive experience, my primary passion and focus is pure modelling. I love a challenge, ask me to do something not done before, I dare you! I humbly consider myself an expert in 3DSmax w/Vray, Zbrush and Photoshop. I'm comfortable with many other software packages, but those aforementioned are my real strength. Seems I won the top 25 providers on Odesk again, in fact this month (dec) I came second to an Indonesian chap, who only charges $5ph... at that price he can keep first place I don't want it that bad. ;) Methodology: Whilst I am in your employ I like to stream my desktop so you can look over my shoulder and provide feedback at your leisure. I'm also happy to chat whilst I work, though I need both hands, so it needs to be via headset I'm afraid. Strong, clear, concise communication is absolutely paramount, and that works both ways. Dialogue is great, however summarising all discussion via email/chat is important so we may record an agreed course of action. I work a regular GMT working week, but can be called to my desk via txt, email or whatsap most of the time. Footnote: Top 3 lines that make me chortle... one or more bundled with every other project. "Once I get my funding I'll be able to pay you what you are worth" - Classic Catch-22. It sounds like you need my work to raise the money to pay me. I want to work, not gamble. "There's much more work on the horizon, if you're good I can keep you busy for years" - Classic pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You can never reach the horizon, so the analogy is quite accurate. with these words said I've received dazzling feedback, client was blown away, jaws were dropped.. yet the 'more work' never transpires. "You're rate seems a higher than others, can you do it for..." - Classic False economy. It may seem high compared to some, unless you consider that I could (and would) do something in one day that it would take someone else (probably a less scrupulous person) a month to do. My rate is based upon my 9 years of experience, top end rig, and the breadth of work I've done. Ultimately I charge for working at full tilt, nose to the grindstone. I don't eek out my hours to con you into paying more. Every minute I log I am proactively working. I don't bill to put the kettle on, or to relieve myself. If you feel I am working on something I wasn't asked to, or that I'm dragging my heels, I'll prove otherwise or refund those hours. Aside from being a decent honest way to work, I find this gets the job done quicker and is more lucrative for me, whilst also keeping my output high. I love what I do, I hope you will too. thanks, Sam

    Detail- Oriented ESL test and training materials

    Japan - Last active: 7 days ago

    An American national living in Japan, I focus on cultural awareness and international communication. My background as an ESL teacher and as an interpreter for a travel agency gave me the opportunity to work with individuals from around the world. These experiences help in writing concise, clear ESL teaching materials and practical tests with logical explanations for the answers. Now I work from home so that I can take care of my young son. I take pride in professionalism; high-quality, level-appropriate English; and attention to detail. I have a black belt in judo and am interested in textile arts. In addition to academic work, I enjoy writing about my hobbies and about Japan; not flat stereotypes, but real experiences from living in a foreign culture today.

    Senior PHP Dev, SOLID, PHPUnit, Laravel, Clean Code, MySQL & more.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 13

    Over the last 14+ years, I've developed a wide variety of skills that would be a huge contribution to your team or project. I especially enjoy working with the Laravel framework, but also have experience with CodeIgniter for legacy projects, as well as plain old object-oriented PHP. And I mean real object-oriented PHP, not procedural PHP hidden away in classes. I believe that utilizing composer for package management and autoloading, combined with a solid suite of unit tests will result in the best possible product. I believe in delivering only the highest quality work because *YOU* deserve nothing less. I'm a very dedicated, passionate, and ENTHUSIASTIC developer with a great eye for detail. Quality is hugely important to me and so you can hire me knowing that the end product will be nothing short of *awesome*. As a matter of fact, all of my custom programming is backed by my LIFETIME GUARANTEE! If anything ever breaks, I fix it FREE OF CHARGE -- for life. See full details at http://www.infinitywebcreations.com/lifetime-guarantee/. Lastly, I know that I'm not the least expensive developer on oDesk. I'm not trying to be. If you're looking for a Wordpress, Magento, OpenCart, Joomla, etc "developer" or some developer for a small throw-away project, I'm definitely not your guy. But if you're looking for absolute TOP quality from a developer who follows the SOLID principles and knows how to design a robust, tested application and plays well with others on your team -- then let's talk. Thanks so much for looking. Mike

    Senior Drupal developer - EU (responsive sites, consulting)

    Lithuania - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

    My major interest is Drupal development and only Drupal development. I'm concentrated on the exact CMS as I believe that one can be a real professional in only one applied area. That's the reason why I deal with Drupal, HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, and Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign for more than 7 years in a row and do my best to meet the client's requirements. I have an eye on design as well coding skills coupled with broad knowledge of best modern UX practices, it makes a perfect combination for PSD to Drupal service taken to the next level in comparison to most other similar services out there. I do use Drupal at its best and utilize the power of template engines, Drupal hooks, and popular contributed modules to deliver the templates which are easy to use and maintain. All templates of mine come as Drupal field based solutions where you don't need to know even a bit of HTML to manage your content and its look and feel. It makes back-end management UI extremely user friendly and front-end output as bullet proof and predictable as provided PSD, only in HTML/CSS/JS flesh and Drupal blood. Also all templates are QA tested for cross browser compatibility (down to IE9), as well as retina and responsive readiness. Check out www.idealabs.eu for more details.
