Skills and Software Proficiency
Autodesk 3dsMax, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Rizom, Vray, Maya, Marvelous Designer, Wrap3, Mudbox.
My skillset covers a wide range of software and disciplines. Modeling, digital sculpting, unwrapping, texturing, shader development, and lighting. A strong sense of design, spatial relations, anatomy and composition mean I bring much more to the table than just technical ability.
**I do have the ability to render/set up passes but have decided to take a step back from that part of the pipeline**
March 2021: 2 of the shows that I contributed a significant amount of CG to over the past year have been nominated for 2021 VES awards in the category Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode(“I Know This Much Is True”, and “Survive”). While I personally will not receive recognition(as 1 of the CG artists executing the visual aspect of the work that feels unfair), those shows are highlighted in my demo reels on this site. None of this work is done alone, I would like to acknowledge all the people involved with actually executing the CG work. On I know this much is true, Sergey Polishchuk did tracking, Kim Lee animated the truck, Joe Gunn did CG rain interactions with truck and Enviro. On Survive, Sergey Polishchuk did tracking, Arthur Agote handled compositing.
Between 2018 and 2021 I have worked on 2 Emmy submitted(1 nominee) and 2 VES nominees(in a single year and category).

What people are saying about me
"“having Todd on a project is like having 6 modelers” "
"I’ve known Todd for several years now and I had the opportunity to work with him on a project a few years back. He’s an ultra-efficient modeler/texturing machine! He goes that extra distance to ensure projects are completed on time (most of the time before deadlines) and with the highest level of quality possible. I highly recommend him for any endeavor."
"Of all the freelance 3d modelers/graphics artists I managed/hired Todd was by far the embodiment of talent, professionalism and personality: in effect, the whole package. He was always willing to go above and beyond to make sure the product/projects he worked on were second to none and never left a client disappointed, only wowed. His enthusiasm, creativity, design and ideas, capability to deal with clients directly when needed and in turn produce what they hoped for and always so much more than their expectations as well as his ability to work under pressure with extremely tight deadlines, proved him to be invaluable to the team. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a brilliant team player that brings nothing but the absolute best to the table. "
If you have a project that requires 3D I am ready to work with you to produce the most professional results possible in the shortest amount of time. If you need help with modeling, sculpting, unwrapping, texturing, lighting and rendering please reach out to me to check my availabilty. I look forward to hearing from you!
