Hi! My name is Michiel. I'm a freelance artist living in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
My passion : Painting backgrounds, designing environments for games, animation projects and visual novels. I love playing with tools such as VR sculpting and procedural techniques for efficient workflow in 3D!
My ambition: I hope to one day become a fully independent artist. I want to grow by learning from other talented creatives and obtain experience by working on large game- & animation projects. Maybe one day I could work on film as well, and pitch one of my personal projects to major studios.
Previous experience: I have worked on PC & mobile projects as a background painter. I regularly work on concept art and marketing illustrations, which allows me to step out of my comfort zone and put to use the techniques I learned online!
