“Lucas was a 3D art intern with us for several months, and we couldn’t have been happier with him. His work was always completed quickly and to requirements, both artistic and technical. He responded well to notes and feedback, and would turn around changes well within time limits. He was also genuinely fun to have around–his calm personality and dry sense of humor were very appreciated during tight schedules and deadline deliveries. I highly recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring him.”
