I have commissioned Glen numerous times, as a contributor to 3D World magazine. I am more than happy to recommend Glen to anybody, as he is one of the most talented and experienced artists I know of, who also has a great work ethic.

SketchBook Inc. – Joe Myers



I hire the amazing Glen as a modeler often. He’s extremely fast, and the absolute best organic modeler I know of. He’s an amazingly talented guy when it comes to creating characters and creatures as well. He can knock a full creature out in film level of detail within hours! The other awesome thing about him is he shares his knowledge with anyone, and is an amazing teacher. He’s a master of Zbrush, Silo, and he’s also great in c4d, max, and many other apps. He’s been around for a long time! A great friend, and an inspiration to many – Glen is truly a unique. Talent beyond description.”

SKY Creative – Justin Bates



Over the last few months I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Glen on a very intense and high profile project. Glen brought to the project his expertise in 3D modelling and highly detailed ZBrush work for me. One of the first things that stands out when you work with him, is just how quickly he can model, so be prepared to hit the ground running! This is such a fantastic asset and skill to have when working closely with a Director, as initial concepts and ideas can be fine tune really quickly. Glen is also able to take Art Direction and instructions extremely well and can also bring his own creative to the project too. He is extremely professional and his experience is always evident throughout. Glen is a top guy to work with and definitely someone at the top of his game. I can highly recommend Glen for any future work you might need.

If you are looking for someone who can quickly turn your ideas into 3D then Glen would be the right person. I personally haven’t seen anyone model that fast and professional as Glen does. The turnaround time is simply amazing. He is all in all a professional artist and knows his tools. You want something done? Ask Glen! September 22, 2010

Jaime Labelle – CCO Pixologic


“Over the past several months, I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work closely with Glen on various projects. Glen has proved to be an enormous asset. His ability to take a project from concept to realization with confidence and ease has been confirmed. Glen is a rare individual blessed with superior skills both in digital imagery (2D & 3D) as well as traditional art.

He clearly has a bright future in whatever endeavor he might chose. As a result and with no reserve, I would give him the highest recommendation possible. If you’d like to discuss his attributes in more details, please don’t hesitate to contact me”

Callan McInally – ATI Tecnologies


We originally approached Glen as we were interested in using one of his excellent models in a technology demo we were developing. It turned out that the specific model we requested didn’t exist in a form that was immediately useful to us so we were prepared to be disappointed. Glen was excited by the project though and created a new version of the model in very short time that was perfect for our needs. I was very impressed by how quickly he was able to generate such high quality work and also with his willingness to participate in a project that had some very unique requirements. The results of this collaboration can be seen in the Subsurface Scattering demo on ATI’s demo page

John Plewe – Nevercenter


Hard to say enough about Glen. He is a fantastic artist whose speed, communication, and presentation skills are also off the charts. He consistently overwhelms us with quality work above and beyond what is called for. His ability to quickly learn and apply new tools and techniques in his artwork have made him invaluable to us as a beta tester, and we consistently rely on his feedback and ideas in our design and development process. He is also an excellent teacher, and the tutorials he produces for us are always our most popular.âMarch 10, 2009

Dave Randall


Glen has been a dream to work with. His modeling is incredibly well respected, and the tutorials he has produced for Nevercenter have really pushed our product, Silo, to the next level when it come to quality, professional training material. He produced work far beyond our expectations and has continued to support users via the Nevercenter forums. Hard to say enough good things about what he’s done for us. I would heartily recommend Glen for any kind of 3D modeling or training work. March 10, 2009
