Career Profile

My name is Edwin, I am a recent Animschool graduate and an aspiring 3D modeler. The comics, cartoons, movies and video games I enjoyed as a kid and enjoy today as a "big kid", has always influenced my interest and career in art and design. I am a storyteller and creative at heart and I love the idea of bringing characters and their worlds to life. It is one of the most fun parts of being a character and environment modeler.
