I create mostly organic 3D models like animals and plants. I can also rig, texture and do simple animations using Blender, Quixel or After Effects.

Graphic Design

Graphic design can be anything from the button you click to animated banners and websites. Among others I create layouts, UI elements and modern front-end code.

Heya! I'm Alex. I'm an illustrator who does 3D models on the side and has a specialization in drawing ideas. Those thoughts that aren't maybe completely fleshed out but have an awesome concept. Maybe it's a game character, a company mascot, or even a graphic novel. If you can describe it, I can draw it.
My specialization is
drawing ideas.

Watercolors with photoshop


I’ve been looking for something to use to get that watercolor look without having to buy Corel Painter, which, while awesome, can’t be subbed to and the lite version isn’t worth the money (they say it includes all the brushes but doesn’t mention some of the layer styles to make them work as intended are not).

So, about Photoshop brushes and tools. Most of the free or cheap ones are those stamp-ish brushes that you plop here and there and try to hide how it looks the exact same everywhere. Then there’s tools. Tools work much better as they have more flexibility, but can be a bit of a pain to find so here’s couple good ones in case you haven’t run into them before:

Kyle’s brushes

They are awesome, they’re fast and simple to buy and they’re about as expensive as a pint in Paris. Plus he has a bunch of free ones if you just want to try things out.

Kasper Hviid’s brushes

I only recently found these. They are free and they are amazing. The above image was partially done using Kasper’s but you can make much more genuine looking watercolors with them, just try them out and see for yourself.
