I’m James Taylor and this is my blog on 3D art. I want to make the world a better looking place. Isn’t that what artists do?

Right now I work in the game industry as an art director. I’ve also taught 3D art creation at the university level. I’ve been creating digital art since the 90s. I’ve been a web designer, an animator, a 3D artist, a professor, and an art director. I’ve created characters, environments, special effects, lighting, compositing, visual effects, user interfaces, and more.

I also happen to have worked on a lot of different video games:

  • credited titles:
  • Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
  • Blitz: The League 2
  • Game Party 2
  • NBA Ballers Chosen One
  • Game Party

  2. Hi James, did you work on a title called Mig Alley? It was released in the late 90’s early 2000 by Rowan Software.

  3. Ah, I see. There was a programmer named Jim Taylor that worked on it. I think he was from the EU. Nevertheless, I see your portfolio and it looks really good.

    1. Wow, thank you Manasseh!

      Yes, I’m pretty certain I go over head to torso connection in the extended cut off the female modeling videos, you may want to try those. Best of luck!
