Visual Artist

Hello everyone!

My name is John, i have been using Blender for about 8 years, and fell in love with creating things every since. Although I may be young, i have a lot of experience under my belt, from logo design for local charities to being the lead visual effects artist for a short film. I have learned a lot in a short time and I hope that I can share some of what I have learned to make the beginning steps easier you you than it was for me.

My list of skills ( and possible future course topics) include

  • Blender
  • Digital Painting
  • Visual Effects
  • Graphic Design
  • Animation

Those are my area of expertise, and in 17 years of living, I've learned a lot from the great tutorials around the net, I feel like its my duty to give back to the world that brought me to where I am today. Lets get to learning!
