Julie Shah is a 3D props and environment modeler based in Los Angeles. She realized her love of 3D modeling while she was pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Animation at Cal State University, Northridge. After graduation, she decided to work on her 3D modeling portfolio to break into the animation and video game industry.
Julie won a few classes online through competitions, including DeviantArts “Train Your Brain” 3D Modeling contest where her Art Nouveau building won third place.
Since then, she has worked with several independent clients on a freelance basis. She is currently the lead 3D modeler on a team of developers working on an indie video game, “The Eighth Day.”
Her most recent project is the Sylvanas Windrunner Statue from World Of Warcraft for Blizzard Entertainment’s Blizzcon event this year. She says, “I was fortunate to be able to work on a number of parts for her including her arms, quiver and accessories along with 3D printing her parts in-house.” She is also working on a few secret projects that she can’t disclose at the moment.
Julie hones her 3d modeling skills with various personal projects. She is currently working on the Pirate Robot 3D model based on concept art by Cory Loftis, a Disney visual development artist.
Her strengths include 3D modeling, texturing, UV mapping and retopologizing in a number of different programs such as Maya, 3ds Max, Zbrush, and Substance Painter. If you’re looking to hire a talented 3d modeler, check out Julie’s links below and hire her!
