Illustrator/ Concept Artist
Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
I am currently finishing my final year studying Computer Games Art, specializing in concept art and illustration. Once I graduate in May I'll be continuing work as a freelance illustrator. I mainly work in Photoshop, and dabble with Illustrator and InDesign. I am also proficient in character and environment modelling, texturing and animating in 3DS Max 2009 and Mudbox. My real passion is for fantasy and science fiction art, but I'm also available for more down to earth projects.
