About

Dedicated Professional 3D Modeler and Rigger with a passion for speed, efficiency, quality, and reliability.

Hi there,
My name is Weston, and I am a 3D artist. I work full time as a professional modeler, but would like to take on some freelance modeling or rigging. I am based in San Jose, CA, and lead a busy lifestyle. I enjoy going to the gym, watching anime, building PCs, and I am actively working to better myself: artistically, professionally, and personally. I know that to advance in my field, I need to be actively working on my skills outside of work, and I believe that freelance is the answer to that.
Strengths:
My artistic strengths are mainly focused on workflow efficiency regarding modeling and rigging, problem solving, fast learning, and my reliability. I am adept at becoming proficient in new modeling categories in as little time as possible. In 9 months at my current company, I have never once missed a deadline, and my rate of passing quality control on first submission is over 87%.
Weakness:
Scripting is a weaker area, but its something I'm slowly working on.
Concept art and creating from nothing. I am included in a small segment of the population that is incapable of forming mental images (aka visualizing), known as Aphantasia. Thus, I am not skilled at concept design and drawing/painting.

Qualifications:
I have a Bachelors Degree in Visual Effects from Ex'pression College, where I graduated as Valedictorian with Honors.
Modeling Tutor for 1+ years for the college.
Camp Lead Instructor for 3mo, where I taught over 80 teens how to model in Maya.
9+ months of modeling furniture photo-realistically.

My current employer is Outward, Inc, and unfortunately, our clients prefer secrecy, so my portfolio cannot include any work that Ive done in the last 9 months. Inquire in a message and I can send links to publicly displayed work.

Work Terms

Work hours: after 7:30pm, maximum of 2-3 hrs per night. (6hrs on weekends)
Preferred maximum of 12-15 hours per week.
Payment: Check or Paypal
Communication: Email, text, or voice. I will respond to email during any waking hours, and phone between 7pm and midnight.

I work full time as a professional 3D Modeler and I would prefer to take jobs that fit my level of experience and pay requirements. I will not work for free, or for an unfair or exploitative rate. I know that may sound entitled, but I need to use my time wisely, and working for minimum wage is unacceptable with my experience and skillset.

I request that you allow me to publish any work that I do for you on my personal site, with full links and credits to you and your company. This is purely to add to my portfolio, and I will not be gaining revenue from this. If you cannot allow me to display the work publicly, a higher hourly rate may be required to make it worth my time.
