About

My name is Neil Gowland and I'm a Senior 3D Artist currently residing near Newcastle, UK. I've been working in the games industry since 2006, focusing mainly on Environment Art but I'm more than comfortable with most disciplines of 3D game art production. I am hardworking and I'm always eager to improve myself on a day to day basis. I have experience working on a huge variety of games from different genres. Over the past 11 years, I have worked on 14 published games and have experience and knowledge of working on all major platforms and virtual reality headsets. (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP, PC, HTC Vive, PSVR, Oculus Rift).
