4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
I’ve started learning 3D graphics four years ago.
My first software was C4D and i was doing simple looped gif animations, but I felt in love with 3D very quickly, and started to work on my personal projects that gained me an attention. I got my first real job in studio, after fourteen months, from this point everything went fast, moving from country to country collecting new projects and experience, meeting awesome people.
