Experience

Polycat

Digital Artist

Cape Town · January 2018 – Present

Joining a small start up studio comes with taking on more generalist roles, so I’ve rapidly evolved into more 3D aspects of digital art. I’ve been primarily working on sculpting and character modeling in Zbrush and Maya, as well as texturing using Substance Painter. I’m also in charge of any and all concept art and illustration work.
