Hello! My name is Fernando and welcome to my portfolio that I call: "Blender Lost Archives".

I am a software developer and currently, I'm finishing my Computer Science degree. But this is not all! As you can see in this portfolio I am a 3D artist too, working as freelancer since 2009. I love to model 3D arts because this awakens my creativity, I have too much fun modeling and it's very satisfying to see the final results (to be honest, I never have final results because I'm always learning something to make my arts better, so the result is always changing).

To model and render this 3D arts I use an opensource software called Blender. And as software developer, I decided to contribute with this software with my coursework in the university. To do this, I'm developing an integration between Blender and Kinect to help new users to generate a 3D character animation. If everything works fine, I will have my degree and the community a new addon!

So welcome and feel free to contact clicking the links below my picture (at left) and check out my 3D arts below!
