United States,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Digital Production for Entertainment,  January 23, 2015
Hi! My Name is Danny Mak.
I'm a 3d modeling/texture artist who recently graduated from Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. Currently living in Los Angeles, CA.
First and foremost. I love and draw inspiration from art across all spectrums. From traditional master like Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Van Gogh to my modern CG heroes like Rafael Grassetti, Scott Eaton and Will Harbottle. I have a background in traditional art and I'm still trying to find ways to combine artistry into my cg work. I love creating 3D characters that have a story about them simply by looking at their appearance. Since graduating I'm slowly paving my way in the industry and learning that like everything, it has it's highs and lows. But ultimately my love and passion for this medium will bring me through it all. What a exciting time to be working in our field.
