Like many people during the pandemic, I wanted to learn a new skill; you know that one thing you swore to yourself you would learn but never did because you were too busy? For me, that was 3D design.
I love the aesthetic of 3D design, the endless possibilities, all created on the device I call my baby (my MacBook Pro, which actually can't handle 3D rendering very well).
This is my ongoing journey and exploration of 3D design. Follow along as I learn Cinema 4D!
3D design was something completely new to me. I was not familiar with which software to use, the interface, which meant I had a lot to learn, and that excited me!
As a part of the learning process, I follow many designers to keep myself motivated and inspired! Some of my current favourite 3D artists and practicing studios include chomchomstudio, Melissa Mathieson, Aaron Martinez, Studio Tendril, and Jam3.
I began with online classes, 3D Design for Designer's Intro to Cinema 4D for Designers. The program was a great place to learn the basics and put my new knowledge to practice.
After a lot of self-practice, I became specifically interested in character design. I had been following Aaron Martinez for a long time on Instagram and decided to take his class on Domestika, even though it was taught in Spanish and had English subtitles.
I am always learning and I hope this will always be true. I can't say I'm a pro yet, but I have definitely grown in skill and I will definitely continue to. Please look forward to my constant growth!
