Senior 3D Artist and Unreal Engine 5 Programmer
”I am a Brazilian Senior 3D Generalist and Unreal Engine Programmer since the very beginning. I’m specializing in Character Creation for Real-Time Game Engines, but in the near future, I’ll be also involved in Prop and Environment Art, alongside Unreal Engine 5 programming and everything that comes with it (VFX, Shading, Illumination, etc).
I can say with ease that I’m going to the stage that is reaching Advanced 3D art. My knowledge involves pretty much everything that you need to complete an artwork from very scratch, going into subjects such as Modelling, Texturing, Rigging, Animation, Shaders, and implementation on the game engine.
My ultimate goal is to be able to create pretty much everything you need to create a fully working high-quality video game.”
