SAMUEL SMITH

Visual Development Artist for animation

Growing up I enjoyed drawing but I was jealous of my sister because she drew better than me. Around 19 I suddenly realized it was a skill anyone could learn and became obsessed with colors and painting. I'm really glad I did. I love painting and I love talking about it!

 

I learned mostly by myself, and got my first freelance jobs in 2016. I kept learning on my free time and was eventually contacted to join the production of Netflix's "Klaus" in Spain.


After the production, I went back to freelancing as a visual development artist for companies such as Illumination (SING 2), PsyOp (Apex Legends), THE LINE (league of legends WORLDS 2020), Paramount Animation (upcoming feature film), etc. I am now a visual Development Artist at Locksmith Animation.
