Tsubasa Nakai

June 2018 Artist of the Month

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.

For now, I will continue my work, creating images and would like to ultimately make a movie using my characters.  You can visit my site or LinkedIn page for more info.  Thanks everyone!
