I am Adrain a freelance digital sculptor from Pretoria, currently freelancing with SA Anatomy. So it all started when I was 6 years old I had a gap year because they didn't allow me to start studying in primary school because i was still young. Being at home the whole day I had a great chance to meet a pencil & paper.  I started drawing that year cartoons from TV, I believe in that time it was Dragonball Z.

So art was forever with me growing up and when I finished high school a friend of my introduced me to Photoshop and that's when I moved to digital, but deep in me was a great passion for 3D art. So I started 3D modeling props, motion graphics etc. in Cinema 4D V-Ray & Arnold and when I tried to tackle human characters I realized that I definitely need to study anatomy, so I started studying human & animal anatomy ever since & sculpting in ZBrush, I got into it till i couldn't stop.
