What Are the Prospects
for 3D Graphics Artwork?

Words related to 3D technology are naturally blending into our daily lives, and the areas where 3D is used are gradually expanding, so demand is increasing accordingly. Therefore, I think the prospects are positive for 3D graphic artwork in which brilliant ideas lead to the creation of an infinite variety of visuals in various forms such as commercial branding, entertainment, and advertisements.

What Are Your Strengths
as a 3D Graphic Artist?

I think my strengths are in creating colorful materials and lighting for surrealistic and extravagant visuals. Since I enjoy creating my own abstract space by adding imagination to the world of 3D, I think I might be able to offer the most tips when it comes to re-creating textures and unusual artwork styles. In addition, I can explain the theories on modeling, color, etc. suitable for 3D artwork production.

What Are the Main Points
of This Class?

According to the curriculum we developed, you will learn the various expression methods of C4D and Octane so that you can directly realize the image that you have been imagining, practice all the processes for a unique style of artwork that breaks the standards, and obtain the keys to develop your own identity. You are free to experiment with new textures such as a brilliant specular and toon render with an added sparkle, so that you can expand your power of expression.

Who Would You Recommend
this Class To?

I recommend it to those who want to create something pretty and aesthetic, but have a hard time figuring out the right method, those who have difficulty arranging and displaying objects in an empty space, and beginners who want to learn C4D and Octane Renderer more easily and in a fun way. Above all, I want people to enjoy the thrill of creating a world with each different combination, and I hope that this class will allow them to fully express their unique imagination.
