PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Games Lab NZ (2011 – 2013)
3D Generalist • Character Artist

As a 3D Generalist I helped Games Lab with most 3D assets. I worked with the Animation Supervisor to fully realize the 2D concepts in 3D. I was given the tasks to model, animate, texture, light, and dress scenes. As a Character Artist I worked with the Art Director and Concept Artists to meet and exceed their vision for their 2D designs. I would take the designs and model, sculpt, and texture them. I also was asked to take older models and textures and help bring them into the new pipeline as well as do touch ups to bring the quality up higher.

As a 3D Generalist at Cirkus I helped by taking on the tasks given to me such as taking outsourced assets and optimising and bring them to a more completed product. I helped model, texture, animate, rig, render, and grade projects when the help was needed.
