I have 12 years of experience in the Game Development industry. Character art and animation is my specialty, but I'm also familiar with concepting and environment modeling as well. I believe in the hands-on approach and repetition to fully understand any 3d application. I specialize in Maya, Photoshop, and Zbrush. I also use 3rd party Maya tools, like Headus and NDO.

So if you're thinking art/animation might be a career path for you please come see me, so I can answer any questions you may have. Some art schools charge about 100k for a degree in game art. Save your money, just see me for 1 hour, you'll be glad you did. I can provide all the information you need to get that dream job you've always wanted.

Thank you for your time!

Adobe Photoshop

I was taught photoshop at the Art Institute of Seattle. I also used photoshop 40 hours a week for over 12 years working in the game industry. I've used photoshop for concepting, and texturing props, characters, and weapons.

Drawing

I've have thousands of hours of life drawing experience. I've Studied Fine Arts at the University of Anchorage, Alaska as well as graduating from the Art Institute of Seattle. I did some conceptual design at Sony Online. I can teach basic to intermediate sketching and concepting.

Maya

I have over 12 years of experience working in Maya and I stay current on new Maya updates and features. I focus on animation and polygon modeling tools which also includes 3rd party plug-ins like ddo and headus. I've helped launched 3 AAA games using Maya and Photoshop.
