For Animators, By Animators

Long Winter Studios is an independent character development house and custom character solutions studio. We focus on the production of high-quality Maya characters. Our studio website can be found here. This website is our storefront for our high-quality assets for animators, schools and companies.

LWS has grown from one dude in his living room to a global company recognized by the top talents in the industry. It is by definition a passion project and developed out of the desire to be pushed creatively. This studio is where our two passions – pushing our creative limits and helping others reach their goals – meet.

Our products are used to sharpen the skills of animators at many of the world’s top film and game studios as well as by students in some of the most advanced educational institutions.

Our experienced team has made cartoons (full-service rigging, modeling, animation) for studios like Disney, Calabash, In the Box, MoonDog, Lunar, as well as top art educators and schools like Gobelins, Gnomon, Vancouver Film School, and the Academy of Art.
