I see myself as
, that means I am able to work on nearly every aspect of a CG- or postproduction.
Technical requirements are just a means to an end for me. A fast and easy solution is often also the best solution. The most important aim in my opinion should always be to make the finished image or the finished movie in it's entirety as sophisticated and interesting as possible.
Personally, I prefer a matt and somewhat dirty look compared to an often sterile appearing CG high-polish look. Of course with my commissional works I focus entirely on the requirements of the client and work in every desired style, no matter if illustrative or realistic.
