Generalist Artist/Supervisor

Nacho Thomas has over 20 years of experience working in the CG industry. He primarily works as a Generalist, specializing in digital environments, though he’s worked in many roles from artist to CG supervisor. Most recently, he’s been focused on environments for feature films, working for top VFX companies such as Industrial Light & Magic, MPC, Framestore, DNEG, and Ranchito. His credits include The Mandalorian, Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Exodus, The Jungle Book, 47 Ronin, and many more. 

  • Nacho and I worked together at DNEG on several projects, and he is one of those rare artists who is the complete package: artistically gifted, technically adept, and a pleasure to work with. A great supervisor/artist. Put it this way: DNEG had a suite of tools for advanced DMP work and they were called "Nacho Tools.

  • I have worked with Nacho for several years at DNEG and ILM, working side by side on a lot of shows. He Is an amazing generalist: lighting, modeling, texturing, lookdev, and great matte-painting skills. He has a really good artistic eye, and he applies this in all areas. A team leader that gives solutions to the most complex VFX challenges, he is definetly a reference artist to learn the good ways to work in matte painting and generalist environments.
