Welcome to my web site! I hope you like what you find here.
My name is Joel Daniels. I am a CG artist currently residing in Cincinnati, OH. The majority of my professional time is spent in Blender, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Illustrator.
While I enjoy all the stages and elements of a CG project, my personal passion is character creation. I enjoy every facet of the character animation process, whether 2D vector scenes including motion graphics, or 3D shorts with detailed textures and full global illumination. From the initial spark of inspiration while concepting and sculpting, to modeling, rigging, texturing, animating and rendering. I want to bring a good story to life through compelling and memorable characters.
My other interests are animated films, craft beer, drawing, making new friends and growing closer to old ones, and "going exploring" through the nature preserves with my wife and three little boys.
