About Me


Hi there! My name is Rico Cilliers, and I hail from sunny South Africa. I'm a 21 year old freelance CG artist with a passion for character driven 3D art and animation. My main weapons of choice are Zbrush and Blender at this stage, but I also make heavy use of mainstream CG apps like Maya,  Mudbox, Substance Painter and Photoshop. I've been messing around with 3D graphics and animation since I was 13 years old, and I can't imagine how I'd live my life without the constant need to be creative. I also love to draw and paint from time to time, and I think this helps me to understand my digital art better. Art is my hobby and my job, so right now I feel like I'm extremely lucky. My dream is to use my art to  change the way people look at this world.
Apart from doing freelance work or randomly trying to create awesome CG, I also like to build PCs or tinker with  broken hardware.
(Nope, I'm not a geek.) :P
