TESTIMONIALS:

CEO - Next Gen Dreams 3D
I had the pleasure of working with James for the last 12 months. He played a pivotal role in the expansion and development of the team. James is a very capable artist with a passion for the work if you need a senior on your team we can not recommend him enough.

Bluedrake42 - Youtube Personality / MicroProse
James has been a fantastic contractor to work with. Both punctual and professional, James has been a reliable developer for our projects.

New World Interactive - Insurgency Sandstorm - Lead Artist
Had a really great time working with James on "Insurgency Sandstorm". James is a great guy, always positive. He didn't need almost any supervision. His work was always up to specs and on time, he was instantly a great cultural fit and helped our production a lot. I'm looking forward to the day we work together again.

NMC Studios - NotMyCar - Executive Producer
James worked as a vehicle texture artist on notmycar for about 8 months – in that time, he proved to be a great asset to the team; he took direction and feedback very well, produced the requested work in a timely manner, and despite being in a different country/time zone, he was in regular communication with the team and made himself available for meetings and playtests as needed. I’d happily work with James again given the chance.

CEO - Raptor Lab - NDA
"Working with James has allowed us to greatly professionalize our production. The models he produced for the game infuses a great personality into the environments which helps the game to stand out which is exactly what we wanted.
In addition to the immense quality of his work, working with him was very pleasant. He was always responsive and enthusiastic which meant that even though we had mostly telecommuted we felt him as a full member of the team"
