My name is Cristina Grunauer, I’m from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I'm currently an Animation student at Savannah College of Art and Design, specializing in Character Technical Direction. My expected graduation is in November 2014.

I chose rigging to be my main focus because it involves both my artistic and technical skills. It also allows me to be creative when it comes to problem solving, either for the set up of a character or the scripting of a tool to make a process faster.

Even though I enjoy doing modeling, texturing and shading, I found rigging to be my favorite part of the pipeline since every project is a different challenge and it never gets boring!
