About Padraig Daly.

3-D artist and character designer

I don’t mind relocating to other areas or countries if the need is there for an interesting project or job on-site.

I’m very passionate about modeling, texturing, lighting and animation. Especially developing characters or creatures. I really enjoy how the 3D industry keeps redefining itself every year and to keep pushing the envelope.

Originally I started out my career as a mograph animationer until I got hooked in the 3D world. Since then I’ve never looked back and have been fortunate enough to work with companies and studios in different parts of the world.

For more information feel free to contact me. Don’t forget to check out my portfolio and showreel as well.


Being a CG Artist for many years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with most 2D, 3D and animation software on the market.

When I work as a freelance artist, I’ve tried to build up a versatile toolbox that fit my workflow. I always try to use the tool that’s best for each purpose, and over the years I’ve got my favorite setup which has been within my budget.


I have quite some experience of other 3D applications as well though, in the end it’s just tools in a toolbox, not religion.
