Digital Matte Painter – VXF artist
It was 1983, a 6-year-old child was fascinated forever by the image of a Imperial-class Star Destroyer that
crossed the galaxy occupying the whole CRT TV screen.
“Daddy, when I grow up I’ll build spaceships and I will draw laser swords!”
This event changed my life forever, pure love for VFX …
