Hello! I'm Tayler O., a Visual Development Artist and Art Director working in the film and games industry. I have worked on several projects ranging from educational novels online, to motion pictures headed by past producers at Disney. I have a passion for learning and fill my free time with workshops and community challenges to keep myself sharp in the field that I work in. Outside of client and contract work I try to keep myself updated on the latest software packages used to create art (Adobe Photoshop, 3DS Max, Zbrush, Unity, etc.) and continuously sketch and paint when I am outdoors.

I have primarily taught students in the past ranging from early elementary school to high school levels at the Kings Art Center in Hanford, CA. My class sizes have also fluctuated from full classrooms of twenty students to intimate one on one tutor sessions in person and online. Education is one of the most fulfilling occupations that I have had the privilege to pursue throughout my career. Observing an individual's growth and seeing how they have benefited from my knowledge and expertise is rewarding beyond description. Not only have I been able to help others, but my lessons have reinforced the principles and ideas that I use in my professional and personal work.

I impress upon my students a mindset that will not only help then guide their pursuits in art but most importantly, a mindset that will help them in all aspects of life. Art is a pursuit that can be very arduous when taken seriously, and when approached with the proper mentors, it can aid an individual when obstacles and hindrances arise.

I am experienced in the following digital media:
- Adobe Photoshop CC
- 3ds Max
- Zbrush
- 3DCoat
- Substance Painter
- Marmoset Toolbag
- Keyshot
- Unity Engine
- Unreal Engine

I am experienced in the following traditional media:
- Gouache
- Watercolor
- Oil Paint
- Pen and Pencil
- Marker (Copic Prismacolor)

Feel free to contact me through my personal phone number or email!

Tayler was professional and well versed in Photoshop.

Tayler listened to exactly what I needed and helped me execute my goal. I appreciate that he showed me a few different ways to attain my goal and ultimately we came of with the best way that I would be able to understand and execute. I would contact him again if/when I need help with future projects.

Talented Artist/Designer

Tayler communicates very well. He helped me understand the usefulness and applications of the software I was asking him about and cared about my knowledge level. He is a talented artist and explained information in a transparent and straightforward way.
