Roman M.

Roman M.

3D Animation Artist/Art Director

Philippines - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 23

Considered as the most versatile 3d animator in Upwork, Roman is one of the best and the top 3D animation consultant here and in the Philippines. Creating anything involving animation - from films to commercials to small projects - takes a lot of skills to finish. From the design to the storyboard, from the texture to the render, from the composit to the edit - it goes through different phases and people with individual tasks, making it a nightmare to manage. What if a problem arises down the line and it has to be brought back for revisions? What if the artist who created the problem is already working on something else and can't be bothered to fix it? What if these back and forth revisions among different artists cost you more time and money? What makes Roman the best candidate is that with his vast knowledge and broad skillset in the field of animation, he will be able to avoid those pitfalls. What takes a lot of people to complete, he can do it all in one go: storyboarding, character and environmental designs and modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting and rendering, compositing and motion graphics, for all kinds of film and animations. Why manage a lot of people when you can only manage one, who can easily go back and forth with the revisions because he knows the project by heart? Plus, he even has his own studio, Shifting Pixels, that can take on bigger projects because of the pool of local talents he can call on anytime. Managed and supervised by him, of course. You may not need him for a simple project, but you may want him to take that project to the next level for you. Services I provide: Character Design StoryBoarding Animatic 3D modeling ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) Texturing & Surfacing ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) Rigging ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) 3D Character Animation Lighting and Shading Rendering Motion Graphics Infographics Compositing Grading Medical Animation TV Commercial Spots Product Visualization Gaming
