Full name

Darik Smith


3D Environment Artist / Modeler


Ontario, Canada


With Legos, drawing and video games as childhood hobbies, 3D environment art was the only sensible career choice


From 2015 to the present I work in TV Animation creating environment assets for popular kids series. It's fun and fulfilling, so I do not plan on changing careers any time soon.

In the meantime I am working on my 2D design and painting skills.
