My Bio
I've Been working in the game industry as an artist from '93 onward. The first game I worked on was System Shock at Looking Glass Technologies. My degree is from R.I.S.D. majoring in industrial design. They taught me how to think more creatively, instead of overly focusing on technique. I'm grateful for that, as ideas are never my problem. These days my focus is on painting concepts for myself, The more out-there the better. I'm trying to learn how to paint faster and keep a sense of detail with my new works. I love 3D as well and continue to do that for my work. Pleasure to be on this site, and best of wishes to you all.

http://marsmotion.weebly.com/ no ads, easy site tools, no html req. set it up in about a week part time. nice styles. i'd suggest anyone who wants an ad free portfolio without restrictions on size and a robust site layout to try this. I f@#$'n  sound like an ad shit, but it really was easy and it really worked great. I did it because sending clients here with the ads wasnt working. having to click through full screen ads was turning people off. you'd think premium here would get rid of them for your viewers as well. take note DA, please, respectfully. anyway just thought i'd share. best -mike
