Hey my name is Ian Whittaker,
I am 3D artist, living in the LA area, specializing in video game assets. I have a huge passion for all things related to games and have wanted to be in the industry since I was a small kid playing Final Fantasy on my PS one. I also have a huge passion for modeling and texturing since I dove into 3D about 3 years ago. I graduated from Gnomon School of Visual Effects in July of last year and have started making my path in the industry, it has been an amazing experience and I look forward to the peaks and the valleys of the future.

All projects are game assets rendered in marmoset toolbag and were all completed in around 2 weeks per project. I was responsible for modeling texturing and lighting/rendering of all the assets on my reel. All the projects are based on concepts from awesome artists online expect for the last Gun asset (1:34) that I designed myself as a post apocalyptic/scavenged Mosin Nagant. All the projects went from Maya to Zbrush and textured using Photoshop and marmoset as a viewport.
