I am a recent Media Arts and Animation graduate of the Art Institute of California - Los Angeles. I love 2D animation/illustration and 3D modeling. I have extensive experience with Photoshop, Illustrator, 3D Studio Max, Maya, and Flash. I learned by working with someone on the computer with these tools and experimenting creating things that interested me. One-on-one tutoring at a computer is how I would help you to become proficient with these powerful software tools. I prefer to tutor in my home art studio. I am available any time. If you have a sense of humor we will get along well. I have experience tutoring students with and without disabilities.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have experience doing life drawings, organic drawings, inorganic drawings, animation, digital drawing, and typography. I work in pencil, pen, and pastels in addition to drawing using a Wacom Cintiq monitor. I have been drawing for over 10 years and am a senior at the Art Institute in Santa Monica.

Maya

This is 3D modeling and animation tool training. It also covers lighting, texturing, rigging, and dynamics. Tutoring sessions focused on skills needed to achieve end product so student immediately learns by working on things they want to achieve with the software. I have been modeling using Maya for more than 2 years. I have generated 3D models of animated characters, rigged these characters, and generated animated shorts with synchronized voice. I have also tutored several juniors and seniors at the Art Institute in this software successfully.
