I’m Ryan! A freelance Visual Effects & 3D artist based here in Southern California. After my first year of college, I took educational leave to jump-start my career in the entertainment industry.
Fortunately, I have not returned since then. I currently work full-time doing VFX and 3D animations for TV shows, commercials and other content.
I work with After Effects to Cinema4D, Substance Painter, Octane Render and Photoshop.
Hello Ryan! Thank you for sharing your work at IMAGINESS ART…
What is the source of inspiration for your work?
For me, inspiration comes from many places including movies, games, and other artists. But ultimately, it traces back to the world we live in.
Studying nature, photography and our planet, in general, are my biggest sources of inspiration.
The first thing I’ll do is simply leave the house, whether it’s going for a hike, going to a concert or even going to the movies.
I’ll take in my surroundings and pay attention to the colors, lighting, forms and textures of the real world. Then, I’ll come back to the computer and distill all these new ideas into the artwork I create.
What kind of technology, technical or software do you use?
Cinema4D & Octane Render is the bread and butter of my weekly creations, but there are many other tools which I have incorporated into my works including Substance Painter, Adobe Fuse, Mixamo, Forester, Ivy Grower, X-Particles and most recently Oculus Medium.
Hopefully, my work can be an inspiration to others because I’m a self-taught artist, and there’s something to be said about that. I think it shows people
“hey if he can do it on his own, I can do it too”.
