Instructor Biography

Daniel Cremers, 3d modeler, Modo

Hi, my name is Daniel. I made my first 3d model when I was just 12 and created my first simple 3d game at the age of 13! In the following 20 years I worked with plenty 3d and 2d software and game engines. The past 10 years I worked as a freelancer and made 3d artwork for universities, other game designers and companies. I am a self learner, using online video course websites like Udemy. Now I will pass my knowledge to you.
