 Senior Prelighting TD | Lighting | Texture Painting

During a very turbulent time in the both the visual effects industry, and our company Rhythm & Hues Studios, artists forged ahead on “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”.

I texture painted and shaded the most complex character we had in-house, a bronze bull, consisting of over 250 material groups and thousands of texture maps. Also, was a lighting TD on the most difficult one-off shot during the sequence.

On top of that, I textured and prelit some talking snakes, a 6 armed barista, and established the initial texture pass for a giant charybdis inner stomach environment

    Dear Rich

    My name is Daniel Lebica, i’m
    Linda’s and Lue’s nephew. They showed me your demo reel when they
    visited last week and I’ve got to say … I’m impressed. I don’t
    know how many times I’ve seen the trailer where Spider Man almost
    gets crushed by a radio tower. Texture artists and compositers have
    always had my respect. You guys make our jobs easier. I’m an amateur
    3D modeler who’s done a little bit of compositing. So I’ve learned to
    always give compositers a break whenever I work with them. And some
    coffee as well.

    Anyway, I just wanted to introduce
    myself and ask if you had any tips or know of any good tutorials for
    someone in my shoes.

    Take care.
