Spotlight - 9dkid


Jacques Pena (9dkid) is a multi-talented, award-winning artist...  From traditional penciler & digital painter to hyper mesh modeler & mograph artist. 

I began as a Illustrator and Painter, constantly drafting and brushing away every single idea that came to me on a giant canvas board that hardly could fit in my bedroom room let alone my studio space. This lasted from high-school through college. My education of Arts through the years help define ways to spread my creativity in other mediums, which included CG art, Architecture, and character art. When I received my first artist position after college, I was mainly put into the creative role of film and animation. I began as a storyboard artist, concept artist, and prototyping visual effects. It was getting my hands dirty into every aspect of the creative field that help me get too where I am.
