Animation is a medium in which objects are made to appear as if they are mobile.  Gone are the days of paper and charcoal drawings. In the present day, animations are produced via computer-generated images.  The unique categories of animation include 2D animation, 3D animation, and pixilation. Animation is heavily used in movies, video games, and special effects.

Gbenga Emmanuel Ajetomobi is a 28-year-old 3D generalist artist living in Lagos, Nigeria. He hails from Osogbo Osun state.  He has been drawing since he was young. Previously, Ajetomobi dabbled in 2D animation, Anime Studio and Adobe Flash. In 2009, he ventured into animation and hasn’t looked back since.

Ajetomobi became a 3D artist because he became engrossed in creating his own characters.  He enjoys “making them interact with different stories.”  He has created characters for clients and for use in short skits that he produces.

Seeking to hone his craft, Ajetomobi hasn’t entered his artwork into any competitions. “I still consider myself to be work in progress and I still need to continue to be better, and maybe one day hopefully one of my projects will be fit to win an award,” he says.

Ajetomobi is inspired by his everyday surroundings and animation giants such as Disney, DreamWorks and Sony.  He expresses, “I get inspired too by my everyday life too, there are lot of things I don’t do, like socializing and all that, this gives me more time to sit down with my computer to make or learn something, and for the times I am not sitting down working, I go around studying nature. “I get inspired too by my everyday life too, there are lot of things I don’t do, like socializing and all that, this gives me more time to sit down with my computer to make or learn something, and for the times I am not sitting down working, I go around studying nature.”

As for the future, Ajetomobi explains “In the next five years, I see myself as a better artist with my craft, I see myself breaking barriers and I see more of international collaborations.”
