About

My name is Frank Aliberti and I am a 3D artist focused in character art. I have a holistic interest in every area of digital arts. Proficient in most areas of game art and real-time simulations I am passionate about character development, digital sculpting and anatomy. With a strong traditional art background and advance studies in digital art I can develop a character from concept to completion.
