Hello all, my name is Will and I'm a freelance Animator, Rigger, and a Visual Development artist. I design characters and environments traditionally or CG. I’ve been trained by some the world’s best artists. Whether the person needs help in a 2D software like Photoshop, or Illustrator to something more advanced like 3D software like Maya or 3DS Max, I’m the guy to go to. I’ve worked on many titles; one of the biggest titles so far I’ve worked on was on Tomb Raider. I’m currently a Teacher’s Assistant for the “Life” and “Anatomy” classes.
For the past year or so I’ve been helping teach several “Life” and “Anatomy” classes in a room full of 40 or more students per quarter, per class. At the end of the day, anyone can draw a beautiful picture with a smiley face on it but, if there is no understanding of what is being represented, there is no art. My job would be to help the students in understanding form follows function. Once a student can understands form and function a program such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and Maya becomes very easier for manipulate into whatever he/she desires. I’m currently in my few last days of graduation from school at the Art Institute of Los Angeles and earning my Bachelor’s degree.
I only ask a few things of my students and, that is to always keep progressing in their own art. Never get frustrated if you don’t understand something at first, realize that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Finally, and most importantly, you must always have a high level of professionalism and respect.
