Gustavo Soares, aka Guzz, is a 3D Character Modeler and LookDevelopment artist, living in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
He has always had a strong passion for art, regardless of the genre: from traditional (he is a big fan of Italian masters such as Raffaello Sanzio and Leonardo Da Vinci) to digital.
Anyway, his course of study brought him initially to earn a graduation in Business Management at the Faculdade de Tecnologia de Tatuí.
It was only when he started to use 3D software that he decided to switch to a whole different industry, and to devote his studies to a subject which has not only become his job, but has also always been a long-standing hobby.
After being shortly employed as a 3D Artist at Techno Image, a Brazilian image production house, Gustavo is currently working as a freelancer.
Among his clients are top brands such as Dreamworks TV, Nickelodeon, Nickelodeon Jr, Mindbender, Aardman Animations, and others.
He is mostly known for his clay-looking 3D sculptures, which are so detailed that they actually got fingerprint marks.
