David J. Macias

I’m a 2D/3D Illustrator and writer and I invest most of my creative time into developing stories, characters, creatures, and worlds. I enjoy painting as well and creating dynamic imagery using value structure and color.

I love cinematography and storytelling, finding the best composition to tell the story. I have an appreciation for how story informs artistic direction and how visuals go hand in hand with narrative. I've always got some sort of idea rolling around in my mind and I'm currently writing a screenplay and a novel.

Projects I’ve worked:

  • PayPal (3D Modeling - environments)

  • Nickelodeon (color design)

  • Air Stream Nest (character design, 3D modeling - characters)

  • Pikmi Pops (3D modeling - characters)

  • Hatchimals (3D Modeling - characters)

  • Fingerlings (3D modeling - characters)

  • Flush Force (color and light design - environment)

  • Dowling Magnets (character designs).

I am also proficient in a high poly to low poly baking workflow for games.

Primary Tools: Modo, Zbrush, Maya, Marvelous Designer, Photoshop, Illustrator, Procreate.

Degree: Bachelor's in Arts, University of North Carolina at Asheville. Major: New
