Hi, I'm a CG artist working mainly in the game industry, I love doing both ConceptArt of characters & environment, and I always enjoy doing some 3D handpainted or PBR models =)
I'm always focused on improving my skills or discovering new techniques and awesome software packages
I work on several personal projects alone or with friends, the most important one is a kind of a fan-made game & trailer based both on the clone wars & star wars ep3 story, called "Redemption" at the moment
And from early May 2019 to Late December 2021 I've been extremely proud to be part of the excellent team Nukeygara, creators of the wonderful Akeytsu =)
Worked from home as a freelance on 3 creatures for realtime purposes, from sculpt to texturing closely following concept arts
I was in charge of creating 3D busts with a small team of character artists I had to mentor and help on a short-end project, final purpose were renders using Unreal Engine 5.
I also established a production pipeline to answer all needs, and was in charge of the whole integration (import/optimization/shader creation/scene lighting & render setup) and did the bridge with both the client and the programmer

"Star Wars - Redemption" is a fanmade game project inspired mostly by the clone wars TV show and, of course, star wars universe. The project may take place between Ep2 & Ep5 or more, I'm not done yet with the story but bold storylines are set.
The game takes its inspiration from 3D platformers like Rayman 2 & 3 and The Force Unleashed game serie, and also aims to offer space combats (if possible)
I make Star Wars-Redemption with the kind help (at some point/when possible) from :
- Thomas Chaumel/Steven Ménager (Animation) ;
- Fantin Gislette/Alexandre Cheremetieff/Thibaut Hunckler/Laurent Dessart (Blueprint/Game Design) ;
- Anthony Daneluzzi (VFX & Technical Art consulting)
NB : 'Square Phoenix" is our little team's name, not a studio =)
I did two exclusive skins ordered by I From Japan (https://www.i-fromjapan.com) for an upcoming game. These skins (GroundBreaker and Cyborg) were based on Syblast. Working with such a great company was a really fresh experience to me, and gave me the chance to better my skills as a character artist.
Game published by Sony Music Entertainment
I had the pleasure to work with the team behind Akeytsu as a Character Artist during a short period of time, I worked first on a character who then became Syblast, and on a bust for supporting their new Blendshape's system (Based on the awesome SkySurfer by Sergei Katsukov)
I worked on an unannounced project on Nintendo Switch/Unity as Environment/Props Artist. I had to do mostly optimization of existing models and modeling/texturing assets ranging from small props to big environment ones, and Levelbuild pieces together in Unity
I worked on a teaser of the "Ouroboros" game project as a freelance artist with Anthony Daneluzzi, teaser was made with Unreal Engine 4. I worked on ConceptArts/Environments/Character/Animation/Compositing/Soundtrack
I worked on RoboQuest prototypes for RyseUp Studios as a freelancer. I mostly did environment, and if needed character stuff in 2D ( ConceptArt, paintover, texture... ) and 3D ( Modeling, sculpt, baking ). I also worked on The Burning Descent VR as principal EnvironmentArtist/LevelArtist/PropArtist/TextureArtist, ConceptArtist, and did a few things in technical art field such as shaders/integration in UE4. In addition to this job and still for RyseUp, I did some works ordered by Eden Games and other customers.
I started my work at Kenzan on promotional stuff for Omega ( swiss made watches ), on some diferent brands from them like "Orbis", "Dark side of the moon", and "Sochi 2014". Most of the videos I've made for their was displayed into an "holographic" viewer, and I handle most of the technical or artistic related stuff on it, except some VFX ( when it comes too technical for me, like krakatoa or realflow, which I don't know how to use for now ). Then I worked as an Environment Artist on "Teo et Leonie" ( a TV serie project under the Unreal Engine 4 ). Back home, and along these two years, I always liked to work to improve myself as I can't do the way I'd like at Kenzan.
I did some LowPoly Modeling/Texturing ( Handpaint Workflow ) for the 2D plateformer game HeartZ.
