Rhys Holmes

united kingdom ,  Berkshire Southampton Solent university ,  computer generated imagery ,  May 12, 2016
My name is Rhys Holmes, and I am about to enter my final year at Southampton Solent university, which I am studying CGI. Since starting my course i have leant a wide variety of skills to help me move into the industry when i finally graduate next year.

i am a CGI student that aspires to be an professional 3D environment artist at some point after graduating. my main goal for creating an environment is to give it a purpose and let it tell a story on what it is all about. with that i also enjoy creating VFX simulations, and found that I would like to try out more in future projects.
