Mexico,  Mexico City Univesidad Del Valle De México,  Digital Animation,  December 20, 2014
Hi! I'm Rafael, I recently graduated from the Digital Animaton major, where I learned the basic stuff of everything in the VFX Industry. Two years before I graduated, I worked in a Game / VFX Studio as trainee and intern and later had the opportunity to work in a VFX Studio as character artist and 3D Generalist, that and my non stop 24/7 self learning discipline made me grew exponentially as an artist. I always try to push myself to the limit.

I specialize in making characters because is the thing I love the most to do, there's not something I enjoy more than practicing creating a character, well... that and spending time with my family.

My primary goal is to be one of the greatest character artist in the industry, that is my fuel that push me everyday to become better and better. I was born in the USA and I wish I can return to work in one the best studios and do what I like to do.... ¡Making Characters!
