My Skills
3D Environment Art

Creating highly polished and optimized props and dynamic environments for game projects is one of my specialties. I am comfortable creating highly detailed art works using some of the latest industry leading tools on the market.

Digital Sculpting

Along with environment art, digital sculpting is also one of my strengths. Using ZBrush for true versatility and creative exploration, digital sculpting provides a way to bring out the details and personality of any asset whether it be for environments or characters.

3D Animation

I have always been fascinated with 3D animation and in 2010 I decided to start a degree in this very subject. I have a broad knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of animation both in 3D and traditional forms.

3D Character Art

Character art is an area which I believe I have great experience and knowledge of. In the future I would love to explore this area further and broaden my portfolio with more character projects.

2D Illustration/Concept Art

I have quite an extensive knowledge of 2D and traditional art forms. I've studied an art diploma which covered a wide variety of mediums in art and design. I've also done a number of personal projects related to concept art, but unfortunately due to my love of 3D game art I've not invested as much time into as I would like to. In the future I hope to add more to my portfolio.

Compositing/Video/Photo Editing

I have done a lot of compositing/video and photo editing both for my university course and also for my own personal projects. Compositing was a vital part to my animation degree, I had to learn a great deal in regards to using Nuke for colour grading, match-move, rotoscoping etc. I was grateful for this as it furthered my understanding of photo and video manipulation.
