Hello, My name is Nate. I am a 3D environment artist and graduating from Academy of Art University in May 2015. As a passionate 3d environment artist, I have a year of working experience at a company in Korea as a generalist where I was an artist overlooking every work from character animating to modeling, texturing, lighting, etc. After that, I have started my Master’s course at Academy of Art University(AAU). I have learned more deeply about the techniques and industries. I was able to find what my strong suits are which helped me decided on my specialties: 3d Environment Artist. Upon my graduation I am now able to create highly detailed texture and modeling for 3d environment and props.
