3D / Concept Artist @ Malao Film

Summary

I am a 3D/Concept Artist, currently based in Ohio, US. I have been working for several games studios and animation studios in the Netherlands before I moved to the US.
I love creating environment concepts from sketch/thumbnails to final illustrations or to digital matte painting.
I also love to use AI tools for creating unique characters and transform it for digital portraits.
I mostly use Maya and Unreal Engine in my work.
Thank you for stopping by.
