Back in the day, way before zBrush was on the scene, when 3D computer software packages cost around $100,000.00, a little software package surfaced for less than $1,000.00 called “Animation Master”. I worked with programmer Ken Baer over at HASH Software to bring to life a talking CG generated human head (me). This character was used in the commercial “Killer Tools”. When Killer Tools won top honors from On Production and Post Production Magazine, a new world of digital work presented itself to me, from video game production (starting with Earthworm Jim), to feature films and beyond.

An image is worth a thousand words ...

The Pioneering days of speech animation and photorealistic 3D animation.

I have had the privilege to have a widely diversified career in visual effects. Whether it’s been making an interactive video game table for “The Heineken Museum” in Amsterdam, creating the Flesh Master™  color system and game to help people breakdown colors in a glance, or simply having my work seamlessly blend into the background of a vintage dance routine in Glee’s Superbowl commercial “See the USA”, I love combining art, technology and performance.

Today, software packages like Maya, ZBrush, Mocha, Syntheyes, After Effects, Photoshop and more, are allowing us to bring ideas to life in new and exciting ways.

For fine artists, makeup artists, special effects artists, or anyone wanting to learn more about mixing colors. Made for iOS iPhone™, iPad™, and iPod™ devices!! 


  Re-inventing the wheel ... the Color Wheel that is!

Fun and informative  ★★★★★

This app simplifies color theory so that even a novice can totally get it! This ought to help a lot of folks struggling with color mixing, and color matching. Great job!

I love it!  ★★★★★

This is absolutely perfect, I'm a make up effects artist and I never took formal classes about color theory or painting. So it was perfect for someone like me to actually make sense of what I do, it's simplified my color mixing immensely. A great fun game and a quick and easy to understand color grid (color wheel).

Invaluable tool!  ★★★★★

I am a painter, and can tell you the struggles I have had in the past with mixing the perfect light flesh tone. FleshMaster is an invaluable tool to help speed the process. The game is fun too!
