in 2005 I started in 3ds max, learning architecture and fundamentals of 3d software.
2007 started at the Academy of Art (online), learned that I lacked character development skill and have studied 3d modeling, anatomy, story boarding, Zbrush, MAYA, Adobe.
2012 (or so) they stopped lending me money and I haven't been able to go back. I started looking blender and taking YouTube tutorials.
I was more focused on the movie side of CG, and have even worked up a story line for a short film. but. then there was MINECRAFT and 7 days to die.
2016 I started looking at unity games and watched a few tutorials. I have gone through the basics tutorial and have found it easy to use. but I have very little understanding of programming.
I love these world building games where we write our own stories.
