3D Animation & VFX

Thanks for visiting my site, my name is Pete, I am a 3D artist specialising in modelling, texturing, shading, lighting and hair - creating the visuals is what inspires me not so much the animation. I first began learning 3D when I was 16 years old through work experience at school with a few various companies. Once I got my head around the relatively new notion of computer animation I had realised I had discovered my field of interest and was just lucky enough that it actually existed as a job! Generating computer graphics has always been far more than a means of money earning for me and I'm sure it will always remain a great passion and hobby of mine. I began my full time 3D career in Melbourne, Australia. At this point I had the opportunity to learn Softimage 3D 3.7 and didn't work any further with 3D Studio version 3/4, my first 3D programme. After almost 3 years working with Softimage I sent my Showreel to Animal Logic in Sydney and a few months later moved my stuff up to Sydney to begin working there. After a further year with Softimage, Maya was starting to take over the race and I jumped aboard. Since then there have been many jobs needing both my skills in Maya and XSI so keeping up to date in both packages hasn't been an issue. Although overall my choice package is still Maya.

These days I live in Heidelberg, Germany.
