My name is Larry Brock and have been an avid artist for nearly my entire life. For over 15 years I have become a self taught designer and graphics artist fitting in with a versatile network of artists. Became a dedicated Flash Animator and designer in 2001, creating full websites, banners and games, utilizing every tool necessary to date. However, for the past years I have devoted much of my time and skills to 3D and Digital Painting as I have found much of my enthusiasm for production and concept work best displayed with these skills. Currently my work stands as a freelancer/contractor utilizing many programs to deliver a wide variety of graphics and animations, including a mild wash of video work. My work is my life, so enjoy.
