Meet David Heijl
COW Leaders : David HeijlCreative COW Web Writer, Contributing Editor
After studying English literature and landing a job as a technical writer, David returned to one of his first passions: drawing. This being the 21st century, it didn't take long before the CG bug bit him.
In fact, in a distant past, that bug had lead to his first CG artwork: a grayscale picture of a dragon at 2K resolution, painstakingly clicked into existence, pixel by single pixel, on his father's state-of-the art workstation - a sickly grey Atari ST.
These days, graphic design, computer animation and visual effects are his main interest. Attending the only Maya course in his native Belgium did not appease his hunger for 3D skills, hence David's presence on these forums. Recently, he's discovered the wondrous world of compositing with Shake.
To help realize his ambitions, he's started freelancing as a graphic designer and effects animator. Who knows, maybe someday soon David will get his foot into the door at one of the few Belgian post or animation facilities.
