My name is Neil Blevins, I am an artist who specializes in scifi/fantasty themes, monsters, robots and environments. I primarily use 3d as my main medium, but also use traditional and 2d digital techniques as well. I currently work at Pixar as a technical director, but do fine arts pieces in my spare time, many of which are in my gallery.
