About me

My name is Richard Benning and I am a digital artist & designer based in the Netherlands. Drawing has always been a passion of mine which eventually evolved into digital painting and 3D modelling. I have always liked some form of interactivity in my work, so I've also added programming in various languages to my skills.
I have two bachelor degrees in Multimedia Design and Software Engineering.

At this point I have worked at several companies as a designer, 3D artist and front-end developer with a focus on (serious) gamedesign. In my free time I like to create digital paintings.

I'm currently employed as a Virtual Reality designer/developer at Maastricht University in the Netherlands where I create realtime 3D characters and worlds to be used in psychological experiments.
