Merlin’s Final Major Project was drafted for The Rookies Finalists and was awarded an Excellence certificate for his achievements.

As a practicing artist, Merlin ensures the content delivered reflects that of the latest industry trends in emerging techniques and processes. For more, see www.artstation.com/merlinperry
