PAYNE

I'm currently studying the Art of video games at Escape Studios. I really enjoy making procedural material within Substance Designer and creating textures for my group projects. I am a driven person and always strive to achieve to the best of my abilities. I'm always interested in learning and trying new things. I am interested in the Games industry and the VFX industry as they both excite me. In my spare time I enjoy fashion and collecting trainers.
