This course focuses on giving you artist friendly techniques to either bolster your toolkit as artists, and if you are at the beginning of your journey, help you discover if 3D graphics is perhaps the career for you.

Digital Artist

Bachtiar completed his BA (Hons) in 3D in 2005, and has worked in visualisation and effects since 2004, completing work for BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Chevron and Lainge O'Rourke as well a number of advertising, interactive and TV clients.

Currently, he teaches at university and is keen to help others achieve their goals, so that they can realise and share their ideas with others. When he has free time, he's building games with his friend in Germany - focusing on art assets. Geographically, he lives in Perth, Australia, where he enjoys playing basketball, drinking coffee and hoping for an ice age - so that he can snowboard out of the front door, and get more coffee.
