Hi, Welcome to my personal website!
I'm Tapio Terävä, an aspiring 3D Game Artist!
In 2017 I graduated from my Game Graphics studies
at the Kajaani University of Applied Sciences.
I've also done an internship at the game company
Critical Force, and served as a Game Graphics
and Game Development lecturer at the
Oulu University of Applied Sciences.
I'm primarily a 3D Artist, but I'm no stranger to 2D Graphics either.

Who am I?
I'm an easygoing guy with a passion for video games and 3D graphics, which is why I'm aspiring to become a professional 3D artist.
I'm currently looking for work in the game industry, after finishing my contract with the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, where I was in charge of the daily operation of the Pelifarmi training program, and served as a Game Graphics lecturer at the Oulu Game Lab in the spring of 2018.
In 2017 I graduated from the Kajaani University of Applied Sciences, after finishing my thesis on game character workflows. During my studies I participated in several game projects, and in 2014 I did my internship period at Critical Force, where I worked on their upcoming game Critical Ops. My tasks consisted mostly of 3D modeling, texturing, animation, and creating particle effects. I also worked on some UI assets, mock-ups and promotional material.
As a person, I'm social, easy to approach and passionate towards what I do. I'm open-minded and not too restricted by conventions and traditions, while I do realize their benefits. I like taking on challenges, and if problems arise, I'm capable of coming up with several creative ideas and suggestions to tackle them. In conflict situations I try to keep calm and stay objective in order to reach a solution. I value feedback, since it improves my work, and if given a chance, I'm willing to give constructive critique to help others improve their work as well.
