Hello, I'm Mateo Costa. 
A CG Artist specialized in the development of characters and props for the video games industry.
I'm a 3D Artist at Drakhar Studio, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where I work directly with the Art Director, the Game Designer and Animation department bringing ideas to life in a playable game-ready environment.
I like to share knowledge and solve problems.
I also make games for fun at HypetrainGames and I have my own workshop where I teach stuff and give tips to other 3D artists in collaboration with Factoría de Innovación, here in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
My free time is dedicated to learn and improve my skills, spend time with family/friends, play video games, watch films and travel around taking photos which you can see at RNDM Musings.
I’m always open to collaborations and new opportunities, don’t hesitate to contact me.
