Hi, My name is Bryan. I’m a professional freelance CG artist of 16 years. My specialty is texture painting.
I have a huge passion for this art form and equally enjoy sharing with other up and coming artists what I’ve learned along the way.
I have worked in film and TV wearing many hats in CG. From modeling, texturing lighting, animation and composting. Roto, match move and some editing.
My tools are Maya, Mari, Body Paint, Photoshop, Mudbox and After Effects that I have used in production for Nickelodeon's Kung Fu Panda, Penguins of Madagascar, Fanboy and Monsters vs Aliens. And a few shots in Spiderman 2, Death Race and Behind Enemy lines. At times I will use a digital camera for reference shots, textures and for just doing photography. Film & digital.
Sorry, no character modeling, sculpting or character animation as of yet.
I taught one semester (3 classes) of CAPS at the Academy of Art University. This was a CG prerequisite course of the basics in Maya, Photoshop and After Effects.
If you want to learn and get a handle on the software or get over the hump in making your project look good, I can help. At your own pace. Where you can appreciate the technical side and enjoy the artistic side even more.
If you love the art of CG, keep at it. Each challenge makes you stronger and stronger.
I hope I can help you out in getting there.
As a freelance computer graphics artist, I have been using Photoshop since 1995. It is the main tool for many forms of digital art. Photoshop is the go to tool I rely on and can help students not to be intimidated by it. But to appreciate its creative value and power.
When I am working at home on my work stations, I have to maintain their systems. We have both Mac & PC. Each can have their own set of issues with software or some bug. I'm an artist not an IT person, yet on my own I can keep our systems running with themselves, printers and internet. As well as help friends walk it thru over the phone.
I use both the PC & Mac everyday in my work or Mac for photo editing, compositing in AE, editing video in FCP, using Photoshop and several Adobe programs. Too many apps to list.
If someone needs basic Mac computer help or learning an application, I can help.
I have been using Maya since 1998 when I was learning version 1.0 & Unix while interning. I loved it.
I taught the basics of Maya at the Academy of Arts for a semester and really enjoyed teaching each student--what a rewarding experience. I can share with you what I've learned over the years in production as we move forward in getting you started in Maya or working on an assignment.
