3D Environment Artist in Video Game Industry
       Hey folks!        My name is Bradley Wascher, I am a 3D environment artist working in the video game industry. I’ve worked for some of the biggest names in the video games industry, from Liquid development, to High Moon Studios, which is owned and ran by Activision. I have several years of on the job experience creating 3D art for video games. I have even worked for a design company creating 3D products all the way down to 2D web graphics and print ads. 
      I’ve had the great pleasure in my many jobs to have learned a lot and met a lot of great people that had their own techniques and insight. I wanted to give back to the world of 3D by releasing classes and tutorials that would help others either get a grasp of how video games are actually built or help artists that are already working to advance their skills.         If you ever have any questions just let me know. -BW
