Hi. I am Ronald Kary Black. My Dad didn't want Ronald Jr., but Mom wanted to name me after him -- in a fine example of compromise I've gone by Kary since birth.

For the last 5 years I have worked in the games industry at Digital Extremes. I have been lucky enough to touch most art areas of game production, with a focus on layout, modeling and texturing.


Modelling and sculpting: I am an experienced hard surface modeler and sculptor.  3ds Max and Zbrush are my programs of choice.

Texturing and UVing
:  I am comfortable texturing with tools such as Photoshop, 3D-Coat and Polypaint in Zbrush. I can work in a pipeline varying from handpainted 'diffuse only' to PBR.

Traditional: I have a classic art education and can use those skills to effectively communicate visually.

Software Proficiency:

  • 3d Studio Max
  • ZBrush
  • 3d Coat
  • UVLayout
  • Photoshop
  • xNormal
  • nDo
  • dDo


I graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in the 90's. There I studied a mix of film, video, holography, and drawing.
