CHARACTER ARTIST | ART DIRECTOR | CG GENERALIST

Fabien Glasse

Nexus Studios former Assistant Manager called me the "French Army Knife", and it's quite fitting. I'm a 2D/3D artist based in London, focused on characters, from sketching to the final render, but it's the short version.

While concepts and character creation will remain my major strengths, I enjoy working in other fields, covering modeling, sculpt, garment creation, texturing/shading, lighting/rendering, and even print when needed.

There are so many projects you can conceive but so little time to do them all. I enjoy being a team player and working with others in developing a joint project, fighting - for good - over appeal and style guidelines. I love what I do, and always will, no matter the project.
