Hi Folks, I’m Frank, a multimedia artist from Milan (Italy). What a wonderful time to be alive for an artist! Technology is allowing us to share our art with the people we love, create connections, collaboration and friendship with like-minded people, no matter how far away they are!
I put a lot of work and love in every assets you see in my store: I build them for you, because I know you have incredible stories to tell, and I hope my art could inspire you and make your greatest ideas come to life, through a beautiful animation.
This is what inspires me to do what I do, and drives me to create better and better content every day. If you’d like to talk to me, feel free to send me a message on facebook at @franksdoodles. I’m always happy to hear from my fellow creators!

Hello, my name is Cameron Hines, I’m from Atlanta Georgia and I love to create animations, whether it’s 2D or 3D. I went to school as a web designer, but deep down I knew animation was my passion. I wanted to switch degrees but halfway through my web design degree I couldn’t afford to. So, I told myself I would learn animation on my own.
At the time, iClone 5 just came and it was affordable enough for me to start creating decent 3D animation. Growing up I loved cartoons and video games, so I always wondered how artist would create them. Now with iClone 7 and CrazyTalk Animator 3, and Cloud Animator (CLA), I feel like animators can now create amazing art, on a tight budget. My goal is to be part of the many artists at Reallusion Marketplace , who’ve made a successful career in animation.
Hello! My name is Daniel S. Ferebee and I am a retired school teacher living on the east coast of the United States. I have been involved in the creative arts for more than 20 years now.
