I’m Liam – master rigger of characters and mechanical contraptions. I’m a 3DS Max based artist, currently learning C4D now. I like to take creative, adaptive & fluid approach to what is normally a fairly technical process. Anything is riggable! When I’m away from the computer I’ll be outside doing something physical – kayaking, climbing, poi, parkor, unicycling or building something out of wood.
Favourite pie: fish pie

I’m Rob. 2D digital artist.
I mainly live in two dimensions whilst constantly seeking new inspiration for my next work. I like to arm myself with such Adobe wonders as Illustrator, Photoshop, After effects and Flash. I turn my hand to anything and everything creative but my passion is in animation. When I am not creating pretty things, I like to look at pretty things. Whether it be art, film or animation.
Favourite Pie: Chicken, bacon and mushroom.
