Dark Edge Design
3D Art of Ray Phelps

I am San Diego California based 3D Generalist with more than 8 years experience in asset creation, currently outsourcing with Daz3D. I focus on complex modeling, rigging, texturing, and digital sculpting, but I also have skills in other areas such as lighting and lookdev.

My tools of choice are:
3ds Max, Substance Painter, Zbrush, Marvelous Designer, 3dCoat, Keyshot, Photoshop, and Daz Studio.

"I have commissioned Ray to produce tutorial content for 3D World Magazine several times. He has a great focus on a quality, is very enthusiastic and passionate about the work he is commissioned for at every stage of the process."

"I have had the pleasure of hiring Ray for several modeling projects over the past few years. He has never let me down and has always been a great pleasure to work with. Ray is an expert in his field."

"While managing Content Paradise, an e-commerce site for 3-d artists, I had the pleasure of working with Ray as one of our top vendors. With his attention to detail and incredible talent, I always looked forward to his next project launch."

I drew from comic books as a kid, leaning on Stan Lee and Joe Kubert, in high school I found Frank Frazetta and my life changed forever. I took a break for 15 years but then came back to my art roots, after all that time the art landscape had really changed.

It was soon then I discovered 3D art...and I've never looked back.
