Class of: 
Dec 2023 (Cohort 17)

Profession: 
Artist / Designer

As a 3D Artist educated in Fine Arts, animation and game design, Taoan Qin holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.

Before coming to CDM, Taoan entered the game design program at Vancouver Film School, where he gained knowledge of the game industry, and experienced the whole game art pipeline - from modelling, texturing, rigging to animating it, and finally importing the 3D assets to the game engine. One of his team projects needed to use motion capture for the in-game animation clips, so he also knows how to clean up mocap data and modify it.

Besides, Taoan also knows how to make VFX, adjust materials and shaders in the game engine. In other words, he believes he can do all works that belong to the game art pipeline independently. He got the "Excellence in Art" award at the graduation ceremony of VFS.

Taoan’s goal with the MDM program is to keep learning. He thinks he should not restrict himself to the field he studied, he needs to broaden his horizons, learn more universal relevant knowledge and polish the skills he already has. He believes this journey can bring him more fresh ideas for the future.
