Thank you for your interest in my portfolio. I am José Iván and I'm the artist behind the artwork presented here. I have an immense passion for creating realistic-looking environments for video games and give the impression that the art looks like a real place. I am currently living in Boston but I was born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico, which its beauty and diversity always inspired my creativity.

I pursued my passion and moved to Florida to obtain a Bachelor's in Game Art from Full Sail University. During my degree I got an extraordinary insight of what it takes to make art for games and how to work in teams and follow production pipelines to create games. The softwares that I use are Maya, Photoshop, Unreal Engine, and ZBrush, but my IT experiences makes it easy to quickly learn and adapt to other softwares and new technologies.

I keep working in the IT industry thanks to another Bachelor degree but in Computer Science, and this has allowed me to form the professional that I am today thanks to all the opportunities, the different industries, teams, people diversity, and the knowledge gained. And although I enjoy the challenges of the IT field, making art is what I would really like to be doing.

This portfolio was created to document my growth with each piece and share it to those interested, like yourself. I hope you enjoy its content and don't hesitate to contact me.
