My name is Cristina Grunauer, I’m from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I'm a recent graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Animation, specializing in Character Technical Direction.

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!
