Hi, my name is Tsubasa Nakai and I am currently a director and generalist at Marza Animation Planet in Tokyo. I have been working in the the film, game cinematics and commercials industry for seventeen years. Over the course of my career, I have developed my skills and have become proficient in previz, modeling, look dev and lighting.
It was during my college years when I watched Toy Story, which both shocked and amazed me all at once, that I knew that I wanted to work in this industry. Making CG art is not only my job but also my hobby. I always think that creating images will inspire the imagination of those who see them. One artist whose work has always inspired me is Tatsunori Tanaka.
I have been using 3ds Max and Maya since I started learning CG. Some of my favorite software are Autodesk Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter and Arnold. It is thanks to these tools that I could create the images which I had imagined both quickly and smoothly.
