I just love looking at your art! Did you go to school to be a "character technical director"?

Thank you very much...I'm delighted you enjoy spending time with my work.

No, I didn't got to school to learn character rigging or any aspect of 3D. I just spent a lot of time doing it for several years. I was pretty obsessed. When I wasn't on the computer doing 3D, I was thinking about how to solve problems I had run into. I stopped sculpting completely. Eventually I made a demo reel and got hired at Dreamworks. My path, especially these days (13 years after I was hired), is unusual. Many character technical directors get formal training in school now...

Well, it isn't quite that simple in my case :). I spent many years sculpting and then doing 3D independently (doing what I loved) and not getting paid (I worked part time and lived very simply to make ends meet). What I earned during those years was some skill that eventually led to a job at Dreawmworks. Dreamworks is a great place to work, mostly because of the great people. But the work itself was nothing like the 3D I had been obsessed by. Furthermore, in a job like that you are doing other people's work, not your own. So while I was at Dreamworks I wasn't doing what I loved (but I was making a decent living). After twelve years I quit Dreamworks to return to doing the work I truly love...figurative sculpting. Whether I can really make a living doing this remains to be seen. If it works, then I am truly getting paid to do what I love...fingers crossed...

Live simply so that you may do what you love. Do what you love and the money might follow...I don't know yet :)

Ohh :) That is a great example of following your passion and doing what makes you feel alive....I will keep my fingers crossed for you :)! Whether you choose to keep living simply or if you have the opportunity to get paid for it...I hope you find contentment and joy in whatever comes, if you haven't found it already :))) I've always associated working for big companies with success, but your story has provoked me to rethink... :)

You're welcome :aww: ! I once learned in my education(wood) to work in a very classical and ...well... somewhat boring way :D , so I really like to see work which is free and original. In the sculptural media a lot of people (like me too) do their stuff on a more technical way, than on a artistical I think....
Whatever... I even watch you  :wink by Gomotes

I bet you make demonic rituals to make the little sculptures float like that!
Also, you broke my jaw because when I saw this, it dropped down like an anchor. Really though, jawdropping art, pal! Great job!

Good God that 's just some kind of black magic how you make these!

The materials I use for this kind of sculpture are light, so supporting it with a single 9 gauge steel rod is not too difficult...and downright easy if you are willing to spill some blood on the dark alter.
