Pio Paulo Santana

United States of America,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Digital Production for Entertainment,  January 24, 2015
My name is Pio Paulo Santana. I'm a Modeling/Texturing Artist and recent graduate from Gnomon School of Visual Effects. I originally studied 3d to supplement my current 2d skills, but as I spent more time sculpting, baking maps, and problem-solving, I quickly found that 3d had become my passion. The projects below were collected from my time at Gnomon using beautiful concept artwork from other talented artists. I'd like to thank the Gnomon staff for teaching me practical skills both for work and for life in general. Also, thank you to all the friends I met during school, especially Omar Aweidah, you are my rock.
