That's One Amazing Chameleon

Nikie Monteleone Chameleon Render

Nikie Monteleone is a Portland based Senior Surfacing Artist at local animation studio HouseSpecial, and one of the best Maya users in the world in my opinion. Anyone that has ever 3D modelled an object or character then textures and lighted the scene can appreciate the attention to detail on this chameleon model and each and every scale was meticulously painted.

I feel honored to have Nikie as not only a local Portlander, friend, but Autodesk and I feel quite honored for Nikie to use our Maya in her set of tools to create this amazing work of 3D art.

Here is the Autodesk Instagram post of her work
