About

Hi there! I'm Esteban Díaz, a VFX Artist from Chile.
I've been learning and doing VFX in Unity since December 2019, that's the first day I opened Unity 3D and fell in love :)
I complement my visual effects working with Blender, Frame-by-frame animations in Adobe Animate or Procreate for the sketches, Photoshop to draw the textures that I need and Shadergraph to create and add more possibilities to the VFX.
I try to be always improving my skills and also learn new ones! :)
I'm obsessive and studious (that's guaranteed) ⚡️🤟🏻

  • Jr. VFX Artist at Inguz Media Studio
    Vina del Mar
    December 2019 - March 2022

    I am Esteban Díaz and I started from scratch with the creation of Inguz Media and accompanied along the way by Sinestesia Studio. In this period I learned from the basics to the most complex, to understand the world of VFX and 3D. Since my first month I started to publish all the Assets that can be seen in the Unity AssetStore, in ArtStation and in iTCHio and these vary from 2D, 3D or a mixture of both focused in Cartoony and Anime Art Style.

    I had to polish my skills with Blender, Photoshop, Animate, Procreate and Unity obviously, and all this has helped me to be a better artist every day than yesterday.
