Kevin Andersen

Important person to whom money should be given.

Kevin is a 3D artist who became a technical artist who became a lighting artist, and is still all of those things in varying measures on different days. Kevin's specific sphere of technical art is lighting, materials, effects, and optimization. While he does not write code or script, he is at his best when working closely with engineers and rigging artists as a translator between the art, engineering, and tools departments. When he isn't fixing artifacts, lighting, texturing, or optimizing game assets, he enjoys drawing, reading about new advances in real-time rendering, and writing paragraphs about himself in the third person.

Expertise: Lighting (real-time and offline), materials, modelling and texturing (characters and environments), effects, optimization (CPU and GPU), training

Software: Unreal Engine 4, Maya, Mudbox, Substance Painter, XNormal, Photoshop, After Effects, Z Brush, Unity Engine
