Phil McDarby:

Phil is a Digital Artist, Photographer and Composer. He has been drawing and painting fantasy and sci-fi characters and environments for most of his life, and made the jump from traditional to digital around 1998. At the heart of his work is a desire to capture a sense of magic and wonder - that feeling of child-like excitement and discovery that we can lose touch with as adults.

He uses a number of methods to create his imagery, from 2D painting using a Wacom tablet to 3D modeling in Maya, Bryce and 3DStudio Max, from digital sculpting in zBrush to matte work using his own photography as textures in his scenes.

He has won over 50 international awards, including multiple CG Choice Awards from the CGSociety and the Golden Torus Award. His work has featured in many publications, including Expose 6 from Ballistic Media and many international magazines, and he has composed music for film and television.

In 2004, Phil co-founded Vyro Games, where he oversees the creative process, while also taking a hands-on role in all aspects of content production.
