3D Generalist / VFX Artist / TD
Alaa Al Nahlawi
Twisting Reality is my passion.
My name is Alaa Al Nahlawi ( علاء النحلاوي ) aka Alan, I am a VFX/CG Artist from Syria with more than ten years of experience which spread over multiple graphic design fields, and I love what I do.
I came from a 3d generalist background and I advance in:
- Game design which I consider to be as a military service, it teach you discipline where you have to optimise your 3d model and textures wisely while maintaining it's beauty.
- Architecture visualisation.
- TV series and channel identity design.
- Motion graphics and animated logos.
- TD where I started learning Maxscript and built my own tools and pipelines.
- VFX my passion, here I mastered:
Particles, fluids, dynamics, cloth effects.
Digital pyrotechnics (fire, smoke, explosions,…).
Digital demolition (bombs, tornadoes, earthquakes,…).
Through this site I will be glad to share with you my knowledge and offer my design and teaching services.
