Bio

 

Who am I?

I am a 3D artist/Technical director. Most of the work that I do involves texture mapping, lighting compositing, and particle systems. Usually I am the last person to work on a scene. Just before it gets sent out. Although I do modeling and animation from time to time it is not my main focus. Occasionally I write scripts, plugins and other little things that help improve my workflow. Want to know more about Ed Harriss?

    What sort of Software do I use?

    Does it really matter?.... as long as the final product looks good and gets delivered on schedule, (or before that) it doesn't. But, some people really want to know.
