3D Artist Toronto, ON, skardart@msn.com

An atrist my entire life with experience in the 3d/gaming industry since 2007 and at Ubisoft since 2012 as a 3d Artist creating assets and textures, much of the time with my own conceptual freedom. Previously to that I was the Primary 3d artist at FrameForge 3d, which is to say I was the only one creating the models and textures, primarily under my own art direction. Completed for the most part as low resolution work with just diffuse textures, I did create quick simple high resolution models to use in my texture work.
With the experience I have gained at my current position I am now looking forward advancing my career on projects that more reflect my own interests.
I enjoy the creation process from conceptual drawings and research up to the final product. I enjoy playing video games and find a great amount in inspiration in playing my favorite games as well as games with quality visuals and intelligent, enjoyable game-play. I have a lot ideas and am interested to see how they would further translate into the gaming world.
Diligent and experienced I appreciate the opportunity to take on new projects and challenges. The ability to “Assimilate and Adapt” allows me to conform to any pipeline or work flow. I would be a productive member of any team and be inspired by those around me as well as inspire others.
