Working in the CG Industry can sometimes can be very hard. I try to find new ways to get the job done faster and better, whether it’s new workflows, software, etc. I’m a big believer in hard work. And every day I try to find out new techniques and tutorials to make my pipeline solid. Art is just something I’ve worked hard to get good at and grown to love over a fairly long period of time. Something that keeps me going and motivates me to grow as an artist is my goal of someday working on big feature films and AAA-games. Being able to create good work daily, that attracts a lot of people is a big dream of mine.
What I love most about doing 3D is that you can create whatever you want. I also love the feeling you get when you learn new software, workflows or finish a new project. Sometimes you might get stuck, but to me it’s just about continuing to work hard, remembering your goal and keeping it entertaining.
I am a humble artist, who always tries to learn something new in this field of study, I make it best out of the little things I have rather not worry of things that I don’t have, I’m not the most gifted and talented artist out there, but I push my best and pave my way to become one among the best.
