Samuel Smith

I'm a visual development artist for animation.

I was originally studying to become a 3D animator, but after 3 years of 3D school I decided to pursue digital painting instead. I learned mostly by myself, and got my first freelance jobs in 2016. I kept learning on my free time and was eventually contacted to join the production of Netflix's "Klaus" in Spain.
After the production I went back to freelancing as a visual development artist for companies such as Illumination (SING 2), PsyOp (Clash of Clans ads), THE LINE (league of legends WORLDS 2020), Paramount Animation (upcoming feature film), etc.

I specialise in color and light and I'll try to teach you my understanding of it!
