The Artist of the Month for December, 2018, is
We congratulate teyon, who faced stiff competition from 12 other artists, for winning the December Artist of the Month. Teyon's skills as a 3D artist are obvious. One glance at teyon's gallery and you'll see what we mean: his character designs are outstanding. In fact, he works professionally for a game design studio.
Here is a selection from teyon's rather extensive Renderosity bio:
My work basically is a reflection of my wacky personality, presented in any form I can find! I am a self taught artist, from sketches right on down to the big 3D. My first love of comics, cartoons and anime have heavily influenced me. The Artists who have influenced me most include the likes of Tex Avery, Mike Mignola, Travis Charest, Bruce Timm, Mario Ucci, and Barry Windsor-Smith to name a few.
