I am Marleen Vijgen, a 3D character artist from The Netherlands based in the UK. I always loved to create characters. It was the feeling of giving "life" to the concepts though that really inspired me to delve further into 3D art. I have a strong passion not only to get better, but also to research the "why" we do things. I don't take my art for granted, there must be a reason behind the character or story to truly give them life. As someone who is interested in a lot of things like Biology, Earth Sciences and programming, but also art, the games industry is the perfect combination for me between technology/sciences and art.
