Anim.nl is a sole proprietorship company run by me, Nanda van Dijk. I work a freelance character animator and all-round 3D artist and I have over 5 years of professional experience working on commercials, games and feature animations.
Character development and animation is my main specialty. I am very versatile and have a wide variety of skills such as Concept Art, Storyboarding, Modeling, Sculpting, rigging and 2D and 3D animation.

Before I start an project I will first make concept art drawings. This can be character designs, storyboards, animation thumbnails, color boards and a lot more.
With these concept art pieces I will decide the look and feel and what the story is that I want to tell. Concept art are mostly quick sketches to communicate what I am planning to do. But sometimes more detailed images are called for.
One of my Specialty's is the development of interesting and appealing characters. I start with character design and if the character is in 3D I will model the character. Make sure that the character has color and texture.
When the character is approved I will build a rig, this is like a skeleton that allows me to start moving around the character. This model can now be used for still images in different poses, for 3D Printing or for animation.
With Animation I can create the illusion that the character(s) come to life. I can make the character move, talk and act in an believable and appealing way.
I have studied animation at Animschool, an on-line school where I was taught by animators that work or have worked in the big animation studio's in America. I've learned to animate in the same way that they do on these Hollywood productions.
My main specialty is 3D animation but I can also animate in a traditional 2D way.
If you are an artist yourself and would like to get some help with your work or if you want an demo reel critique you can contact me with your request. Depending on the amount of mentoring needed and the amount of time it will take I can make an price estimate for you.
You can also follow me on diverent social media such as Facebook, linkedin, twitter and Vimeo to get the latest updates about what I am currently working on. Hope to see you there!
