Hi, my name is Richard Hopper. In 2004, I graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX, with a B.A. in Computer Graphic Arts, emphasizing in 3D animation. I moved to Houston, TX nearly five years ago, and in that time I have worked for Archimage as a cinematic animator, and Pi Studios as an in-game animator. In my off time, I like training and competing in Brazilian jiu jitsu tournaments, going to concerts, playing videogames, watching movies, and spending time with my wonderful girlfriend. I am currently in the market trying to land a full-time job as a character animator. I love creating all types of 3d animation. My fingers are crossed!
