My Bio

Introduction Hello, my name is Chris (Dutch02), also known as "E.X.O. Armor Labs". My primary art medium is 3D/ Polygon Modeling and HDRI Rendering software to render the 3D models in a scene. From there I go back over the render with some Photomanip software to accent points I want to stand out more. I occasionally work with Digital Drawing as well. That is just the low-down of what I do. Went through 4 years of Structural/ Manufacturing Drafting & 3D modeling. This was during my time in Highschool, since then I have continued to educate myself further into the 3D modeling aspects. Faced numerous failures and even full on losses of past years of my concept models due to hardware failure, and I have not let it break my stride in creativity. Influences on my Art If it wasn't apparent enough, my artwork was inspired by something. After having played the Metroid Prime series and Halo series a majority of my life, I've had an inclination towards the design aesthetics shown in both series. I started out just copying armor designs shown in the games for my first 4 years of learning how to visualize things in a 3D environment. Since then I have branched out and made my own designs; essentially, I end up "throwing stuff into a blender" and through my own creative process "sifting out the un-appealing" bits to get a satisfying appearance. Of course, some end up better than others which is a given. Software & Other Specifics If you've come across my profile, I'm sure your wanting to know what I use to accomplish my artworks. 1. Google Sketchup Pro Thats right, I use the lightest weight 3D modeling software out there to accomplish a faster work flow. Keeps my laptop's resource usage fairly low so I can work on highly detailed models with ease. My weak point is that I dont work with "high-poly" modeling much. I've experimented with high-poly 3D Sculpting but have yet to get comfy with how it works. I will eventually expand into using it. 2. Keyshot 4.0 By far the best stand-alone 3D Model Rendering software out there. It does have a rather steep cost; its software that works incredibly. Bungie and other game studios have used this software to "quick- render" their UV-painted/ textured 3D Character models without having to expend the time of setting up a whole scene in 3D Studio Max or Blender. Just a matter of importing the model and selecting a scene and its there. 3. GIMP 2.0 The true and through best free-to-use image manipulation software. I've been using it ever since version 0.3 and I can say for sure its the closest free alternative to "Photoshop". 4. Medibang Paint Again another true and through free-to-use software, specifically for Digital Drawing. The last 8 years I've been constantly experimenting with using various drawing tablets getting comfortable with how different it is to draw on a drawing tablet surface to paper, of course. Over the last year I have gotten comfortable with using the drawing tablet so I am eventually posting more digital drawing artworks. >>>WARNING! CONSTRUCTION AHEAD! PLEASE, SLOW DOWN!<<<

I'm sorry but the matter of my commissions needs to be cleared up. First of all; &nbsp;my commissions are my current and ONLY form of income at this time. My stuff isnt cheaper than $30 mainly because I value myself as a hard working 3D artist that doesnt try to give my customers shit product. Secondly; &nbsp;dont expect me to make special deals or price cuts just because you ask nicely. Like I said before the stuff I make is high quality. All of my work is based off of a certain set of standards in detail, accuracy (assuming the model is based off of an existing design), and simplicity (or as simple as it can get while retaining the previous two sta
