Skills

A comprehensive approach to artwork inherently means there must be a comprehensive understanding of the materials being worked with or imitated. Example - understanding how actual granite feels/weighs/sheers etc gives an artistic advantage when recreating the look, feel or presence of mock or artificial stone/granite. This concept holds true for any other tangible material which, in turn, follows through into the digital realm and again in reverse. These are just a few of the methods I use to relay different concepts and ideas.

  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • After Effects
  • Blender
  • Lightwave
  • 3js
