Hello, I am Raymond Gabriel, I am from Egypt, I studied architecture and got my bachelor's degree in 2013, since then I have worked in architecture visualization using 3ds max and later switched to Blender as its much more flexible and free.

I have always been fascinated by 3D computer graphics, the capability of creating anything I see in the real world and breathe life into it with animation is just incredible, I took alot of 3D work on the side and gained alot of experience in realistic 3D modeling, character modeling and animation.

In 2018, I decided to start my own studio where I create 3D models / scenes for arch-viz, games, movies and 3D printing.

I also started teaching in local educational centers in Egypt and I decided to create online Courses & Tutorials through my YouTube channel ( RG3D - Animation studio ) and on Udemy

I am learning everyday and getting my 3D skills and teaching skills developed with each project, course or tutorial I make, Join me on this journey and I promise I will do my best to help you develop your 3D skills and put them to good use.

Thank you for reading about me and I wish you all the best.
