About

Hello

I am XR Design student at Metropolia UoAS, 3D artist (generalist & sculptor).

I create mixes of surreal, expressionism, odd, scifi, grim and fantasy.

Tools that I most often use to make 3D are Blender, Zbrush, Substance Designer and Substance Painter. Lately I've also started using Unreal Engine, 3DCoat and Marmoset Toolbag 4.

I also have solid experience with Unity. I know how to prepare my 3D models for real-time use in game engines, be it props or environment. During my studies at Metropolia, Unity has been the main game engine we have used.
