Summary

My name is Marcelo Prado and I’m a 3D artist with 12 years’ experience where 7 years working with assets for games. My latest experience is working with assets and characters for mobile and VR games including PBR and non-PBR workflows.

After leaving my programming job, I started working in an architecture studio where I learned how to work as a team and improved my 3d modeling skills. Some years later I leaved the architecture studio to work with games. For some time, I worked as freelancer creating assets for advergames, indie games and small studios.

Insolita Studios and Level Up! Games invited me to work in a social game and one of the best-known children’s brand in brazil called Chico Bento’s Gang and after this I created the occidental version of the characters for Assault Fire, launched in occident by Level Up! Games.

While in Samsung’s first party game studio (Black River Studios) I created most of 3D art pipeline, since I was the first senior 3D artist hired in studio foundation at 2014. My most important contributions are for VR games creating guidelines for this new and unexplored land such as worked the upcoming technologies.

I never stopped working as freelancer creating characters and assets for games including board games and 3d printing. My latest launched game is Mutant Football League for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC where I created the main skeleton character used as base for the other skeletons characters inside the game.
