    2D Animator, Illustrator, Motion Graphics Designer, 3D Generalist

    United States - Last active: 18 days ago - Tests: 1

    I have been using the Adobe Creative and Production suites since I was in High School, so I am coming up on having nearly 8 years of experience using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Adobe Premiere. Within the last two years I have picked up After Effects, and due to my skills and expertise in previous Adobe products, it was a smooth transition with no learning curves. I believe I know After Effects just as well as the other programs that I use. I specialize in 2D Illustration and Animation, I have the ability to create characters, props, and scenery, animate walk cycles, lip syncing, and facial movements, as well as simulate parallax scrolling. I mainly use Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects for these. In 3D, I use Maya, and I have been using Maya for the past 3 years. I have the ability to model, rig, and animate the human body, create textures in Photoshop for use in Maya, as well as model any other types of objects needed. I have a bit of experience using nHair as well. I will be earning my Bachelor of Art degree from The College of New Jersey's Interactive Multi Media program with minors in Digital Art and Japanese in May 2015. I have also studied Japanese extensively during a two month trip studying in Tokyo. I am also available for translation work or dual-language motion graphics and animation work. I am registering to take the Japanese Language Proficiency Test this December at the N2 level.
