Marcel Petras

United Kingdom,  London University of Hertfordshire,  Game Art ,  September 13, 2015
Hey, I am Marcel Petras
I am about to finish my 3d year at University of Hertfordshire.
My main focus is to understand fundamentals and storytelling in Game art.
I am trying to keep up with the newest tools to achieve the best and most effective results.

After 3 years of studying CGI related course, I am getting very efficient and comfortable with the general gaming pipeline.
Specifically, from High poly modelling to retopo, keeping the topology fairly low, maintaining interesting silhouette for some delicious baking.
Defining materials, narrate story through power of texturing and balancing the final shader with lighting to create visual feast.

Besides my main aim, I am very fond of designing concepts for most of my models and visually plan what I am about to do in 3D space .
Within every design I am trying to maintain functionality and appropriate amount of detail so it fits with given universe or genre.

I am very passionate about trying new stuff and new styles !
