Graphic Design Artist | 3D Modeler
The Artist, Scott M, a published & award winning graphic
artist, has a very strong background in traditional arts, from his being
tutored by a published traditional artist from the age of 5 he has
always had a keen interest in all things 'art'. He has also worked in
almost every art medium out there, from simple sketches (recently
attending an advanced Pencil Arts Class), to oil & canvas, and even
Photography since the early 1980's. He attended, as part of his tenure
in past years as a Decorating Center Manager, various courses in
Interior Design, along with 'The Psychology of Color' by the
Wagner Institute of Color. His Digital Graphic Art is all self taught,
which he discovered he had a love for in 2004 with his 'discovery' of 3D
through free programs such as Daz Studio, Blender & Wings.
He has always attempted to 'meld' his background of traditional arts & media with his work as a Graphic Artist.
He also has a background in the US Navy, serving aboard several Nuclear Submarines as an Advanced Maintenance Technician for the onboard Attack Sonar Suite. In the Navy he was instructed in, and excelled in, advanced micro-electronics and computer technology. The rigors and training of life aboard a US Navy Submarine he believes has added to his attention to detail in his graphic arts. Previous work as well in the construction industry has also added to his ability to create detailed and believable 3D Models.
He is currently serving as the Head of the Graphic Design Department and Lead Animator of a Multimedia Advertising Firm.
