Lorena Da Silva Pinzón
Look Development Artist at DreamWorks Animation
Los Angeles, United States

Hey! I'm Lorena, and I'm a 3D artist focusing in Texturing and Look Development, graduated with a BFA in Visual Effects from Savannah College of Art and Design. I'm currently a Look Development Artist at DreamWorks Animation, but will be looking for any job opportunities after mid-May or beginning of June 2024.

I have worked from the development of early look of picture to shot work on the following films: Ruby Gillman Teenage Kraken, Trolls: Band Together, and The Wild Robot. During my career, I have worked on characters, environments, props, tested early looks and pipeline, helped other artists on my team, created more efficient workflows, built smart materials, and developed a more artistic eye. My experience ranges from photorealistic to painterly textures and look dev styles.

I am always looking forward to learning new techniques, artistically and technically, to improve my workflow and bring new ideas to my crew. I'm always ready to take on any challenge. I love to create detailed and believable CG art through storytelling and research. I also enjoy teaching and mentoring.

Most recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the Intern Mentorship Program at DreamWorks, twice as a mentor, for 6 months total.

Born and raised in Panama City, Panama, a lot of my inspirations for my ideas come from my experience growing up in Latin America and the tropics.

In my free time, I love to watch TV shows and movies. I also enjoy playing videogames, reading, painting with gouache and acrylics, exploring the world, and listening to a variety of music!
