My name is Tim Jones. I am currently working at Digital Domain in Venice, CA as a Senior Digital Artist. Before that I was a CG Supervisor at Blur Studio for 5 years. I graduated in May 2002 with a BS degree in Architecture and a BFA in Illustration. I have a strong background in traditional art. I began taking art lessons at the age of 7. I began teaching myself 3d in 1998. My father taught me how to extrude, lathe and change the UCS in AutoCAD and I was on my way. I created my first rendering with my dads copy of Raydream. A friend at school soon after introduced me to Truespace 2 which I fell in love with. I became obsessed with 3d and spent nearly every free moment teaching myself how to create anything and everything in 3d. I quickly outgrew Truespace 2 and its limited features. That same friend introduced me to 3d studio max 2.5 and I have never looked back. I still use Max as my program of choice.
