Hello! I've had a passion for more traditional forms of art as soon as I could hold a crayon. When I discovered that Art could be created on computers (another early and keen interest of mine) it seemed only logical to see if I could pair the two. I'm trying!

Alexander Tuma


Australia | Flinders University / CDW Studios

My name is Alexander Tuma and I am an aspiring 3D/texture artist based in South Australia. From a young age, I was fascinated with digital art/design, wanting to know more about it and how it was created. At the start, I focused more on video editing and motion graphics more than anything else. However, I ended up coming across Autodesk Maya and wanted to know more, thus starting the plunge into visual effects and 3D.



At the age of 15 years old I met someone who was passionate working in this industry which inspired me to push myself in their shoes.


Portugal | Universal Arts School

I worked 1 year and half as a graphic designer but I didn't enjoy as much as 3D modelling. I started to develop this taste in 3D at the ending of college and this is why I I'm doing a master on VideoGame Art. I want to enter in the videogame industry and create environments and props for video games.
