Summary

Hi,

I have worked as a senior artist in the games industry for many years. Some of the titles I have worked on have been major AAA successes and some projects have not had the same luck. So I feel that I have a full understand in what is necessary to develop a game all the way to completion without making fatal errors to the project. In recent times I keep myself in front of the pack by becoming aware of and training in the latest techniques and software packages. I am also a highly gifted fine artist in terms of realistic painting and drawing style with traditional media.
I am considered extremely well rounded in terms of experience and world class in
execution and end results. Some of my work has featured in the books,
Digital Art Masters Vol 2, and Exotique Character Modelling.

I am interested a position at Senior Artist level. However, I am extremely adaptable and can fit into any team at any level where required.
So please enjoy my Portfolio and feel free to contact me.

Kind Regards,
Mike
