Hello, I am a French 3D graphic designer
based in Tokyo. I am currently working
as a 3D designer in the creative agency Utrasupernew
in Tokyo, but I also work as a freelancer.
I majored in 3D and VFX at Rubika Supincom.
After an internship at Onesal studio in Tokyo,
where I discovered C4D,
I became more and more interested
in software and motion graphics.
I enjoy creating low poly scenes
with joyful characters living in them.
The ones I make for my personal
and professional work always have colorful palettes.
In this class, I will be sharing my creative process
so you will be able to learn how to create
a whimsical 3D set of cute characters
while discovering C4D modeling tools.
Let's jump straight into your own C4D journey!

Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?
It's often an overwhelmingly difficult challenge to decide where to start when it comes to learning 3D. With this topic, I want to make the learning process easier and more fun by showing you how to create your own universe as you familiarize yourself with C4D.
Could you please share how you started your journey in the industry?
I have always been a creative person, even as a kid. I would always carry a sketchbook everywhere I went. I was fascinated by 3D animation, so I pursued this path at my university, where I studied 3D and VFX for 5 years. I learned C4D during an internship in Tokyo, where I took my first steps into motion graphics. That's when I began to discover more and more about motion graphics and 3D animation. Afterward, I was eager to improve my skills with this software. I continued to create various projects to help me learn as much about the software as possible. I posted my work on social media which allowed me to share my 3D journey and be part of a creative community. I am currently a 3D designer based in Tokyo who's also working as a freelancer.
Please share your thoughts on the industry's job market and what you see in the industry's future.
3D is a promising and resourceful market that keeps evolving for the better. 3D jobs are in high demand as the fields of 3D are diverse. You don't just have to stick to one area. It is considered a strength to seamlessly switch between different fields: from cartoons to motion graphics and even product design. If you add 3D to your set of skills, it will broaden your opportunities in the professional world. With the rise of new tools, virtual reality, and augmented reality, you can see how 3D technologies have evolved over the past decade. In the upcoming years, 3D will become more mainstream. The 3D market's future is everywhere, so the demand will continue to increase.
