    3D Visualiser

    United Kingdom - Last active: 07/12/2014 - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 12

    I'm a Digital artist, passionate about creating quality imagery for people. I have been doing so for several years, but only recently took on a degree in computer animation and special effects and graduated. I started out learning 3D alongside my school studies in my spare time, as my skills and knowledge improved, there were opportunities made available and I began to work freelance at Intent Design Ltd. on product visualizations and rendering out designs for their point of sale projects. This experience gave me a good insight into the industry at an early age, and since then I have worked freelance and voluntary on more projects. I first started out using SketchUp, but soon moved on to Autodesk 3D Studio Max, where I was able to create better looking visuals. When I began University I was directed towards their favoured 3D application - Autodesk Maya, which I picked up very quickly and still continue to use for animation. As well as these core 3D applications, I was eager to learn skills in 2D also, and used Adobe Photoshop and similar programs for retouching rendered images and photographs, as well as creating textures and images for use in 3D scenes.
