• Timothy Rapp – Founder at High Horse Entertainment
“Rodrigo is a top notch character artist. Not only is he a phenomenal talent, but he is a consummate professional who communicates very well. There were times on our project when I knew exactly what I wanted, and there were times when I only had a vague idea and no concept art for Rodrigo to work from. He was able to nail down my vision perfectly and produce some amazing art based on very loose concepts. Even though English is not his first language, he speaks very well and we never had a problem with communication. Our conversations were easy, productive, and most importantly his work came in on time and complete. His methods are technically sound, his files are organized, and most importantly, the artwork itself is brilliant! You’d be hard pressed to find a more capable character artist in the freelance community.”
• Gilberto Magno – 3D Character Artist
“Rodrigo is a great professional and I had the pleasure of working with him in some character modeling projects to games. He has easily to take hard work surface and organic modeling. In addition of his technical and artistic skills… he is very responsible and dedicated with respect to deadlines and delivery of projects. He is also a very easy and pleasant person to work with. I recommend him for any game company.”
• Fábio Paiva – Character Artist
“Rodrigo is an artist who strives to achieve more than most artists I have encountered in the video games business. He is always trying out new ideas and techniques and pushing the boundaries of what is achievable in a very short amount of time. He takes a keen interest in his work and performs extremely well with a friendly ‘can do’ spirit.
Rodrigo has excelled working for character designs for both my mobile and XBox One games with a tight deadline and limited resources. He made a wide range of character types and provided excellent rig-ready models and detailed texture maps for each. They came out much better than originally planned under his input.
Rodrigo would make a great fit at any company as one of the most enthusiastic, motivated and hard working people I’ve ever worked with.”• Scott Easley – CEO at Easley-Dunn Games
• Bogdan Iliesiu – Creative Director at Angry Mob Games
“Rodrigo has not only been recognised as a top student but proven to be an insightful, diligent and an incredibly inspiring artist. I work in education for students like Rodrigo, as his attitude and talent help me remember why I entered the professional animation industry in the first place.” (June/2010)• Todd Millias – Consultant at Evolve Consulting Services
