James Busby in one paragraph
James is a 3D artist from Belfast. He started working in the games industry in 2002 building environments and characters for Argonaut games. He moved onto work as a character artist and technical director at ARK VFX in 2004 after which he started his own studio Ten24 in 2008.

Ten24 worked on various AAA games titles and intro sequences before experimenting with 3D scanning and Photogrammetry which blossomed into a full time business and spawned two new companies 3D Scan Store and Anatomy 360

James now spends most of his time scanning interesting people for video games, television and film projects as well as for the 3D scan store and Anatomy 360.
