3D Character Artist and Digital Sculptor Adam Bolton is a nine-year veteran of the video game industry. Adam created characters and creatures for Bioshock Infinite at Irrational Games for nearly five years. He created the models, texture maps, and materials for the main characters: Elizabeth, Songbird, Handyman, and more. Working closely with Ken Levine from the conceptual pre-production phase until post-release, Adam defined the look and expressiveness of Elizabeth.
Adam takes characters from concept to rigging along a production pipeline. Modeling, creating texture maps, shaders, weighting to rig, export and import into game engines. His greatest passions are three-dimensional art, and technology.
Adam is interested in digital sculpting and modeling for film, games, TV, toys and collectibles, virtual reality entertainment and simulation. Presently, he has taken a keen interest in the possibilities of VR.
