About Lance


Bio

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.

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 following 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.

Autodesk Maya

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.
