While Halloween is behind us, the spookiness continues with our November 2020 ArtWanted! feature. Our friend Daniel Karner has been busy working on ‘The House’, a passion project in the truest sense of the word: combining his lifelong love for 3D, gaming and classic horror, Daniel is putting in the extra hours in the evenings and on the weekends to create his own game. Following the story of a realtor tasked with selling an old boarding house, ‘The House’ is shaping up to recapture the wonderfully eerie feelings of a scary movie night.
In our interview, Daniel recalls early inspirations, the terror of the unseen and reflects on the joys and woes of game development.

Company, halt! Today, we salute Javier Pedreño, our November 2020 3D Artist of the Month. A passionate character artist and movie lover, Javier recently underwent an extensive online drill at Think Tank Training Center and is currently deployed at animation company Leo Sanchez Studio.

In our interview, Javier talks inspirations, the development process of his favorite character and overcoming perfectionism. At ease!
