Hi! My name is Paul and I am a Texture Painter/Modeler born and raised in Brazil, but currently I'm living in Vancouver, Canada, studying 3D and Visual Effects at Think Tank Training Centre.
On the past 4 months I've made my demo reel under the mentorship of Justin Holt.

Gas Mask: I am responsible for all aspects of the Gas Mask.
It was created with week by week guidance from my mentor and critiques from classmates and faculty. It was off a physical Gas Mask that I own. The whole process, including modeling, UVs, texturing and look development took me 2 months to complete.


Camera: Based off of another real life prop the school had on hand, I followed the same workflow as I did on the Gas Mask. I plan to texture, shade and render it in the coming weeks after my graduation .

Wasp: Wasp was a school project that I did, inspired by an artwork created by Ian Mcque. Since the artwork itself doesn't have an environment or story, I've decided to envision this hovercraft and his owner in a post apocalyptic world.
