Design & Art
Creative 3D Artist
Hi! my name is Aref Malakootifar and I'm from Iran, currently living in Vienna (Austria).
I finished my studies in MultiMediaArt (3D Animation) at university of applied sciences in Salzburg which further benefits my overall concepts and ideas regarding the goal of a given project and/or the needs of the client.
My focus is mainly creating high quality and photo-realistic 3D scenes and props for animation and game design projects. I'm specialized and interested in:
- Modeling: Creating low poly and high poly models for animations, game design, Kitbashes, AR/VR projects using concept art, sketches, blueprints or pictures as a guide.
- Texturing: I have a great expertise in creating highly detailed and photo-realistic textures using substance painter and photoshop for any type of project.
- Retopology: Bringing your High-Poly meshes into a clean retopologized mesh for animation and game design projects
UV-unwraping: Most of 3d artists hate the UV-unwraping part of the design process. I must say I can’t have more fun creating super efficient non-overlapping UV sets!
- Shading: I have a deep understanding of V-ray’s shader system and I can create simple and complex shaders for any type of object inside 3ds max.
- Rendering: Whether it’s an animation movie, a TV spot, an still image rendered for marketing or an interior design scene, I bring your ideas to an eye-candy level!
I mainly work with:
- 3Ds Max
- Substance Painter
I also have a very good knowledge in Maya, Keyshot and Marmoset Toolbag.
I am sure that the combination of these tools with my experience and ability, I will be able to provide the highest quality service. I'm always interested in new opportunities and challenges to collaborate with motivated teams and fellow artists to create astonishing art.
During the last few years, I have actively studied and engaged in all kinds work and specialized fields, including Animation movies, Product design and advertisement, Game design projects, AR and VR projects, Interior Design, 3D modeling, Texturing assets and team management among others.
I have a great passion for what I am doing, and you can only expect me to make your projects to the best it could be! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you think that I might be the right fit for your project. Looking forward to work with you!
