Freelance 3D Artist - Some Openings Available
St Petersburg, FL, United States

Hello. I'm Dan, a 3D modeller based in the Tampa Bay region of Florida, United States. I have over 20 years of experience in the field, and I specialize in science-fiction themed hard surface and environment modelling for video and still productions. My preferred tools are Blender, Substance Painter, Maya and After Effects.

"We had the pleasure of hiring Dan to do 3D character animation for a series of regional Super Bowl ads. He made the whole process, with which we were pretty unfamiliar, very smooth and the results were great! We look forward to hiring him again in the future!" -- Jacob Hamil, Hamil Bros Studios

"Working with Dan was such a pleasure! His modeling work is exceptional and the models dropped right into the shots they were needed in. His detail work is stunning, and seeing the rendered final shots was always exciting. I'm always hoping another project comes up where I could hire Dan again, and in the meantime, I'm just endlessly inspired by his work." -- Sean Kennedy
