To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you and to hear the lamentation of their women!
No that’s not my real mission… Though it is a good one. No, my real mission with this site is:
- Display my works, both private and professional
- Create and sell professional training at a reasonable price
- Network and communicate with clients
I’m a 3D artist and tutor. I also paint and draw/sketch. I’ve been tutoring since mid-2009. When I’m not instructing I’m working as a freelance artist, CG consultant, 3D modeler, texture artist, sculptor, Rigging, frequenter of CG trade shows and an aspiring character animator. I also do photography shoots now again.
For years I’ve been studying quite a bit. The anatomies of many animals, humans and insects. Motion of humans and other animals. Facial expressions of humans. Architecture, and many other areas and topics that I think will help me in my endless quest to be a better artist and understand how things work. I am also in the process of learning character animation. Of course… One can never study enough; Eternally a student of life and all that cliche nonsense.
I draw inspiration from many areas. Some of them are writings, others movies or shows, a number of games, and of course, life experiences. Some of the humans I gather inspiration from are: My Parents. H.P. Lovecraft. Gunpei Yukoi. Robert E. Howard. Robert Bloch. David Lynch. John Carmack. Isaac Asimov. Ray Bradbury. Gene Roddenberry. Bruce Lee. Confucius. Shigeru Miyamoto. Buddha. Just to name a few.
People I don’t like; Liars, thieves, beggars, freeloaders, politicians, anarchists, ultra conservatives, neo-cons, sell outs, bigots, bullies, scammers, ego-maniacal jerks, zealots, turncoats, and so on.
People I like; Well balanced, reasonable, logical, helpful, and so on, people.
I currently reside in Portland, Oregon, which has been my place of residence for many years. I love Oregon, not only for it’s lush forests, many rivers and mountains, but also for it’s liberal/moderate weapon toting inhabitants (like myself). This site is a market place for my video tutorials, webinars, one on one tutoring and for displaying of my works, whether it be art created in 3D or 2D.
The software packages I’m familiar with are, but not limited to;
I have limited use with;
