My Bio

Hey, I'm Maikel, better known as Laggtastic online...and in games.

Currently I'm a 3D Designer at Electude, where we create (E)learning content for the automotive and technological industries. For work, I create highpoly models and renders but because of my study (Game-Art) I like to create lowpoly assets as well.

Primarily you probably find guns and other hardsurface projects in my gallery, but also some traditional drawings. Before starting 3D, I used to draw car illustrations and I hope to continue creating these soon again... :)

Dear watchers I hope you are all doing fine and stuff, and not being so stressed out as I am ? ;) Anyway, I got some good news as I have my very own portfolio website now!:la: You can check it out right here, click the English flag on the top-right section of the website to view the international version (by default it's set to Dutch). I've been working really hard for it, together with friends who have their own graphic & web design company. To make sure they get a proper credit, here's their website, the company is named "Team Blue". They don't have their website in English, but under "portfolio" yo

Stopping by to say hello! Been a while... Your artwork is as amazing as ever.

Hey man, much appreciated!

Well, life changed quite a lot, like...really a lot. Haven't made any artworks for, like a decade it feels. Got lotta stuff going on last years and just didn't feel like making anything =/

First time now logging back in, and surprised how much everything changed. Didn't even find your comment in the message box, perhaps I overlooked it but fortunately found it here by scrolling the main profile page.

I'm doing fairly OK these days, just lot of uncertain stuff.

Hope to get back into art somewhere later this year.

How are you doing? :)

It‘s been a long time indeed. I hope overall life has treated you’ve well and you’ll continue to strive to follow your passion. I‘ve had to dealt with my Father discovering he has advanced prostate cancer earlier this year, and that has been very stressful to deal with. I‘ve lost extended family members and friends from COVID as well, which has been hard to deal with. I like to deal with stress by going out of my comfort zone and trying new hobbies, and whatever I find intriguing. My latest endeavors have been air brushing and astrophotography. Thanks so much for replying!

Hey man, super late reply from my end again =/ Just logged in again after a long time, kinda weird as I used to log in like...every day back in the good old times. Life is OK, I mean...nothing bad going on so I shouldn't complain. Just some stuff that often doesn't go as planned, but what's new :P

I am very sorry to read about your father man... just realizing now it's been like a half year ago since my last reply..I hope there was something they could do at the hospital?... shocking news that is :(.... and I can only imagine it is very very tough to deal with. I also lost some people I knew but not directly family members.

I hope you are doing OK in general and glad to read you found some new hobbies, airbrushing is something I've been looking into at some point as well but..never got to it (no suitable home to do such thing here, either).
