About Lance

As a world-class 3D illustrator and animator, I have worked on projects for Nikon, BMW, Nike, Freightliner, Leatherman Tools, Salesforce, Exide Batteries and Cisco Systems; to name but a few. A regular contributor to 3D Artist Magazine (published in Great Britain), their first tutorial was about "Tot Rod", one of my early illustrations. I provided tutorials for 6 issues and wrote a monthly Q&A column on Autodesk Maya for over 3 years.

I am offering tutoring in the 3D production workflow; which includes 3D modeling (both hard surface and organic), UV mapping, texturing & materials, animation, lighting (focusing on the Linear Workflow), rendering in MentalRay and compositing. I work primarily in Autodesk Maya, and use the following 3D applications as an adjunct to Maya: Mudbox, Vue Xstream, RealFlow, The Plant Factory and 3D Coat.

I also use the follow software to do compositing: Photoshop, AfterEffects and Nuke.

I offer instruction in production workflows, whether you are looking to work in a studio environment or work as a freelance generalist.

Unless you have a production workstation with the appropriate software installed, we'll be working in my studio where you'll be able to follow along on your own workstation (with dual monitors) while I provide instruction on another.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

A former Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, I have use the software since version 1.0. Photoshop has been one of my primary tools for over 20 years, and served me just as well in my former lives as a graphic designer, art director and creative director as it currently does as a CG illustrator.

I've used Photoshop on projects for clients such as Nikon, BMW, Freightliner, Exide Batteries, Roxio Software and Leatherman Tools.

Whether you want to learn color correction, retouching, transforming & editing, compositing, digital painting, or learn to work in Photoshop's 3D environment; I can quickly get you up and running. In makes no difference if you're a beginner wanting to learn the basics or a current intermediate user who would like to really up your game, I've got the skills, experience and knowledge to get your skills where you'd like them to be in this amazing application.

Autodesk Maya

I have worked in Maya professionally for over 10 years, and it is the primary application I use for my illustrations and animations. Using Maya, I have created images and animations for clients such as Nikon, BMW, Nike, Exide Batteries, Freightliner Trucks, Leatherman Tools, Danner Boots, Salesforce.com, Oracle and Cisco Systems. I wrote a monthly Q&A column about Maya for 3D Artist Magazine for over 3 years, as well as lengthy and detailed tutorials in 6 issues of the magazine. My work has won the prestigious "CG Choice Award" on CGSociety.com, where my portfolio has had over 125,000 views and has appeared in Expose┬┤, an art book published by Ballistic Publishing in Australia.
