Summary

I'm an artist specialized in character design and visual development for animation.You can find some of my published articles in diverse professional CG magazines such as 3DWorld, 3DArtist and 3DCreative. Also some of my illustrations have been published in the EXOTIQUE book.

I'm able to do the whole process from 2d concept art to 3d sculpt, 3d modeling with topology for good deformation in animation, uv layout, blend shapes for expressions, texture shading, lighting and final rendering. I work with 3dsmax, Zbrush, Photoshop and Blender. If necessary I can adapt my work to other software.
I can easily follow art directions with the minimum explanations.
