Tonya Bennett

Head of Sculpture/Design

  • Location: Toronto
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I have an intense love of horror, science, rock music, and any combination thereof. Influences are in gothic fashion, haute couture, Japanese street fashion, comic books, manga, video games, RPGs, glam rock, metal, and EBM.  If you want something that stands out, that's how I deliver.

I've been working in the mascot industry for the last 7 years+, so if anything my strongest skills lie in sculpture and costume design.  That being said, my true passion has always been in gaming, and I'd love to apply my real world 3D knowledge to a virtual landscape.  Or just make some really kick ass character designs.
