Hullo! My name’s Chris Lewis. Another Ringling-er here (and lurker for about a year), I probably spend more time helping other students than I do on my own work. As many have said, this forum is all kinds of awesome and it looks like it’s only getting better. Nice meeting you all!

Hi there everyone, I am Rainsing Tsai, former employee of Ubisoft Shanghai, now working for a small start-up studio based in Beijing, China.

I mainly worked as a tool and engine programmer in the past, but TA has been my dream job for a long time :slight_smile:


#328

You dream of receiving a lower salary, getting less recognition, and having everything blamed on you?!

Welcome to TAO :wink:


#329

well if he comes from tools programming he should already be used to the recognition and blame parts =D

Hello everyone!

My name is Raveen Rajadorai. I’m from Malaysia and currently work as a freelance artist.

I’ve been lurking the forums for a while and finally decided to sign up and start posting. :slight_smile:

Technical art has always been something I’ve been interested in and inclined towards. It’s only in the last couple of years that I’ve really started to get into it. I’m still trying to find work in a studio since I graduated, I haven’t had much luck though, my inexperience is a hurdle. I’m trying to improve my skillset to get over that hurdle. Hopefully it’ll happen someday soon! :slight_smile:

Most of my work is up on my youtube channel which you can view here:

Have a great day!

Hello, my name is Christopher Emerson, I am a 3D Artist that over the years has discovered I also have a mind for tech art. You may not know me, but depending on where you work, there is a chance you could already be familiar with what I do. I am the developer of RetopoG, a new retopology solution for Maya currently nearing the end of Beta testing. Not working anywhere at the moment, but am eager for the next opportunity.

Very happy to join the community of talented tech artists here!

Hello everyone,

I am Tyler Crocker and am currently on my last semester at Champlain College before I get out into the industry. I like to write scripts, animate, and rig but need a lot of help learning industry tricks and expect I could find some here as well as try and give some.

Hiya! My name is Jami J.

I’m a graduate student at the Guildhall at SMU (Graduating in May!!). I started school for environment art…and realized along the way that I like writing scripts, rigging, and animation way more :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Can’t wait to get into the industry soon, and hope to see some of you at GDC this March!

Hello everyone, my name is Eric Musser and I’m currently a Senior at Michigan State University studying Media Arts and Technology with a Specialization in Game Design. I will graduate in May and am looking to get into the games industry. I was hoping to get into the industry as a Technical Artist as that is the role I’m most interested in filling. It took me a while to figure this out so I have a lot of work to do build up my skill set. Wish me luck!

Look forward to meeting everyone!

Just realized I haven’t posted here before. I have been lurking for quite a while so I might as well introduce myself.

I am a swede currently residing in England working as a Senior VFX Artist. I have slight attraction to technical stuff like light scripting and shaderwriting, but not enough to take the step and become a TA just now. However a lot of my work overlaps with a TA anyway so this forum is a goldmine for information.

Hopefully my lurking days are over and I’ll start posting more.
