Soa Lee is a Los Angeles based animator who works as a character artist at Naughty Dog, the company behind some of the highest grossing video games of all time, including The Last of Us, the Uncharted series, Crash Bandicoot, and Jak and Daxter. Originally from South Korea, Soa followed her passion for animation and computer graphics on a path that led to her completing a Fine Art degree at Hong-Ik University and having her animation featured in popular industry publications like ImagineFX, Digital Arts, and Autodesk.
Now, in her position at Naughty Dog, Soa uses her skills to shape every detail of the characters in The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, giving them the incredibly lifelike appearance these games have become famous for.
“I’m a 3D character artist creating a digital character. Literally, my works exist in the digital world only. To me, online was the first option to present my works to people. My career and fame as a 3D artist have been growing with my personal website. Now, my website has become the most important way I spread awareness about myself.
Having my own domain is like having my own home. Independent, liberated and special.
I wanted to choose a domain which people remember easily. Among all the many other domains, .xyz was the most impressive one to me because it’s familiar to the 3D artist. X, Y, and Z are 3 dimensions which we always move the vertex of the object to. I think my .xyz domain can present that I am related to 3D somehow. My name, .xyz…how perfect it is to me.”
