Bio

I’m modeller currently working at MPC in London.  I specialize in sculpting in ZBrush and character art in general, but I’m also proficient in other disciplines such as texturing, lighting, rendering and concept development.

My filmography currently includes:

- Paddington (2014) /Framestore
- Dracula Untold (2014)
/Framestore

I have a passion for creation, particularly towards vfx and animation.  I’m also very eager when it comes to CG education; I’ve written several tutorials for a variety of softwares, including MODO, ZBrush and Maya to mention some. My tutorials have also been published in 3D Artist, 3D Creative and Digital Art Masters 9. I’m also the co-founder of FlippedNormals.com, a newly established site aimed at bringing CG expertise to the masses.

Education

2011- 2015 – Bachelor in Computer Graphic Art from The Animation Workshop

During my period at The Animation Workshop, I’ve taken part in every stage of a production, from storyboarding, layout, concept design and environmental design to more technical CG aspects, such as modeling from concepts, uv mapping ,texturing, lighting, rendering, compositing and overall troubleshooting.

During our graduation-film, my official roles were pipeline supervisor and lead modeller. Maya and Nuke were the main tools during my stay at The Animation Workshop. I worked on the short film Roommate Wanted.

 

2010 – Scott Eaton – Anatomy for Artists

During these 8 weeks, I got a very thorough introduction to the human figure and anatomy, which helped me get a solid overview of the subject.
