I'm a self-taught artist with a background in programming and computer science so I'm very technical. I've worked as 3D artist for video games for many years now, but I love illustrations, so one of my goals was to be part of those amazing books from Ballistic Publishing.
The CGSociety is an impressive growing community of talented people. Each day I discover new artists from all around the world. Being a part of it makes me feel that somehow it's possible to built strong friendships, just sharing the same passion. EXPOSÉ is a great sample of what the CGSociety represents to me, and I'm really happy having an illustration in it.
I never thought it would be possible that a image from me is good enough,espacially at the first try. The most important thing for me is the self confidence that i got out of it.
To see my image beside all these great images from these talented guys gives me a lot motivation and pushs me to work even harder on my skill level.
The EXPOSÉ series is a great opportunity to see what's going on all around the world, meet new upcoming artists and compare with them.
