Welcome to the website of Meats Meier, the Organic Mechanic

Hello, and welcome to 3dArtSpace.com.  I’m Meats Meier and this is my portfolio of some of the projects that I have created.   I work in both the 2nd and 3rd dimension using software such as Maya and Zbrush for modeling and animation, and use programs like Photoshop and After Effects to composite the images into Animations and high resolution Fine Artwork.  I also enjoy compositing 3d elements into live action DV and HD footage and then matching the colors and movement for seamless integration.

I take a lot of pictures, some of which you can see in the Photo section.

My biography, demo Reel, video interviews, and book appearances can be found in the

About Meats section.

Be sure to stop in and sign my Guestbook!
