My name is David S, and I have been a CG artist and animator for 8 years. Computer graphics is a passion of mine, and I consider it a joy to pass on what I have learned to others. In 2014, I graduated from Huntington University with a B.S. degree in Digital Media Arts - Animation, so I possess a very good understanding of the principles of animation that spans just about every medium. I have also worked on multiple independent projects ranging from shorts to feature films, which has given me a wealth of practical experience.

If you consider yourself a fun and creative person and have an interest in animation or design, then I would love to work with you to develop your skills. Perhaps you're more interested in Hollywood-style special effects, in which case I can teach you many of the secrets of the trade. Regardless, I can provide solid training to get you started in any of these great fields.

Software Taught: Blender, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, The Foundry NUKE, Blackmagic Design Fusion, mocha by Imagineer Systems, and 3DEqualizer.

Lesson Details

Animation

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I can teach a broad range of disciplines including handdrawn 2D, digital 2D, 3D, stopmotion, and others. If you're merely interested in the design aspects, that's fine, too. I have a comprehensive knowledge of 3D techniques and digital art workflows, and I can tailor the course to meet those needs, as well.
