Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you, what do you do, and where are you located?

Alejandro

I am Alejandro Alvarez, a 3D character artist. I am from Colombia. My Latest gallery image is the Orc based on the concept by Alberto Camara. I am always looking for new challenges and character designs that capture my attention. This one was very interesting because of the stylized shapes and exaggerated/cartoony style. I worked in ZBrush, Maya, Substance Painter, and Photoshop.

What challenges did the image present? Did you learn something new?

Alejandro

The main challenge was to get a good-looking green skin shading. Also, the short hairs on the beard were a fun challenge!

I always try to make time to create some personal projects. Even if i am overloaded with my daily job, I am usually working on something personal.

Are you a member of any social media groups? Any favorite hashtags you check on a daily basis? What are your artistic ambitions?

Alejandro

I like Pinterest and Instagram a lot! I follow a lot of artists and CG groups there. I want to be known as an outstanding 3D character modeler and inspire other artists.

Who are your favorite artists, traditional or digital, and can you explain why?

Alejandro

For 3D artists: Vitor Hugo Queiroz, Sergi Caballer, Carlos Ortega, Shane Olson, Brice Laville, Pedro Conti, and Nazar Noschenko. All of them are genius! I love the way they not only model a character, but also give the character an amazing presentation in every aspect (environment, lookdev, lighting, and so on).

I am always challenging myself on each new project, so probably you will see a Manga character very soon!
