Jessi Ruselowski

United States,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Entertainment Design and Digital Production,  September 14, 2015
My name is Jessi and I'm currently a 3 year Entertainment Design and Digital Production student at Gnomon School of VFX! I come from a background of veterinary medicine, and cake baking, but eventually returned to my nerd passion consisting of computers and art. I just finished 2 and a half years of my track here at Gnomon, and am about to enter the boss battle, that is demo reel. This current WIP reel consists of artwork I've been producing for various classes at Gnomon, starting from Intro to Maya, up to my last few semesters! I'm passionate about the story lighting and color creates together, which is my main interest. However, I do like to dabble in all areas so I'm comfortable with the entire pipeline.

Looking forward to updating this entry with current work!
