About the Artist
Patrick Todd is a local artist who has lived in Frederick, Maryland since he was a young child. He discovered Warhammer 40k, a model based, tabletop wargame when in his teens and from there, started his involvement with a myriad of other model based games; including board games, war games, and RPGs. His interest was especially pulled by the creative aspect of rendering themes and characters in model miniatures, and he began researching and experimenting with different tools and techniques; using acrylics, oils, brush, and airbrush to bring models to life on the board or for display. With further experience, he has expanded his focus from generalized base color schemes, into light theory, non-metallic metals and more. His more recent interests include digital model creation and 3D printing using programs such as Zbrush and Blender to create custom miniatures and characters.
