Lighting & Look Dev Artist
Skills & Toolset
Over the past 5 years I have been honing and enhancing my lighting, compositing, look development and scripting skills. My passion for the animation indusry grows every single day inspiring to keep developing my eye for artistic composition and attention to detail.
Mexican Born lighting Artist based in Los Angeles, currently working as a lighting trainee at Disney Animation Studios in Burbank CA. My curiosity for 3D lighting and shading began the first time I saw Pixar’s Ratatouille, it was then when I started to question myself about the process behind 3D films, I was fascinated by the impact that color, composition, and lighting have in storytelling and it was then when I started my path in the industry, I studied 3D Animation in college where I understood the importance in the relation between art and technology and how they complement each other in this form of art, I then decided to specialize in lighting by attending to grad school at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I have been part of different programs such as volunteering for the VES Bay Area, I spent 6 months at a mentorship program in which I was lucky to be mentored by an amazing lighting TD from Pixar, this experience opened a world of possibilities, it showed me the importance of communication and that everything behind a compelling work has a strong intention behind. My passion for the industry keeps growing every day. I am proud to be part of the VFX community.
