Fabbio Timpano


Australia | Flinders University / CDW Studios

Life after school got boring really quick! I was 20 years old and sitting at home waiting for... well really anything! Then with the input of my friends and family, I committed to completing a degree in Digital Art. When I discovered the 3D entertainment industry, I knew this was exactly what I wanted to pursue. I grew hungry for more knowledge in becoming a professional concept artist.

Ever since I was little, I would collect anything that looked cool and draw it! (Especially Pokémon). I knew since then that I wanted to do art. In high school I fell in love with games and technology, so I took IT and Art. While making mini games, playing games and watching lots of movies in highschool; I realized that I wanted to work in the creative media and entertainment industry.

I was dreaming about working in creative industry and 3D world since I was 10 years old. I first started playing with Blender in 2007 when I was 14 years old, but for a very long time I could only do the most basic stuff. Now at 27 years old I'm finally studying 3D modeling and animation for a 2nd year and I have never felt more passionate about creating a portfolio I'm really proud of and making it into the industry.

Norway | Westerdals Institute for film and media, Høyskolen Kristiania

I used study dance, so i always wanted to do something creative. I found my love for 3D Graphics when i had to create some floating 3D text for a video i was making for a performance. It was about 2 years ago today. After that experience it didnt take long before i went all the way, and searched and got into an education in 3D.

The desire to be part of a creative media project evolved when I was young, very young. I enjoy to draw since I can walk. Since then I knew I want to work in the creative field. Animated movies achieve to inspire me permanently as well as games. Later I chose the path of the games industry and grew into the role of a designer. The passion for art (escpecially 3D art) never vanished. Quite the contrary, it grew even more and faster than I ever could expect over the last months.


United States | The Art institute of Dallas

I realized I wanted to work in the creative industry during my Junior year of highschool when I took my first 3D animation course.


United States | Gnomon School of VFX, Games, and Animation

I have wanted to be part of the entertainment industry ever since I was young. Moves like "The Incredibles", "Princess Mononoke", and "Predator" inspired most of my drawings and spurred me on to be an artist.
