    Hey everyone! I am the Founder of CGDeltAcademy (cgdeltacademy(dot)com - under construction) and an Autodesk 3ds Max Certified Professional and have worked with 3ds Max for about a year doing some projects in 3D Visualization, Prop Modelling, some Environment Modelling. While learning 3D myself, I came across a lot of hurdles like where to go to learn, which institutes are good, which online courses are good etc. Having had some good exposure to 3D and being certified now, I believe I can help a lot of other such aspirants by easing their journey of learning. Hence this is my current mission!

    Best way to learn is to build a community, share work and help each other grow. Mutual Growth is the only way we all can have a healthy learning/working environment. So join CGDeltAcademy Page and Group on Facebook and kickstart this community! After that, be rest assured, all relevant queries and work will be appreciated and answered. :)

    Cheers to seeing you in my courses!
