Maya

I worked in the computer art industry for five years as a 3d fx artist.

I can build polygon primitives and sculpt them within Maya, rig them using the standard skeleton systems and animate, texture, set up render passes, and even utilize maya dynamics.

I gradutated from the school of visual arts from the computer art program in 2006 and have been capable in Maya ever since.

if your having difficulty with draftsmanship. I strongly suggest drawing a free form line such as a squiggly line, and than try to free hand copy that line with great accuracy. This will teach you to better see line in the form of shapes. Do not trace in this exercise. You can make different varieties of squigglies and shapes until they are all at least 90% in accuracy. Good luck... read more
