    Hi there. I'm a beginner 3D artist who hopes to improve, and my dream job to is to work as an animator for games.
    I'm really shy but I'll do my best to be active with the community!
    Currently I'm working on a small 3D game to practice skills mostly on animation and general modeling.

    I used to have an old profile but I wish to start a new (plus I was ignorant at the time and just posted a single sketchbook thread of my crummy works, wondering why I never got a response or feedback). So I apologize for my ignorance and I'll do my best to keep out of troubles. I'm like a grandma when it comes to computers so I'll calm myself and try to read the things I can.

    Anyways, here's to a new start!

    Hi! New member here - just recently started looking around the web for forums for 3D artists and instantly found Polycount as a very inspiring community. I am 3D generalist with 3 years of working experience. Last summer I graduated from film school, however, I am more passionate about game industry than movies and I'm looking forward on improving my computer graphics skills to be able to join game development projects as environment artist and/or game designer.

    Hey! I've been meaning to post here since 2012 when I started a games design degree, and it was about time I broke that long-standing habit of not having an account!

    I've been doing some form of 3D art for about eleven years but don't have any professional experience whatsoever; I spend a lot of time doing it but haven't learned a lot. I'm hoping that this will change. :smile:

    Hi everyone!

    trying to go from lurking to a more active approach on here.
    I'm Sean, 3D environment artist, studying game art in the UK and currently
    working for Yuumei as a 3D background artist.
  • Fl0rida_Man
    Same as marsilainen, I'm a long time lurker. Ever since 2000 I've wanted to get into this field, more so Concept and Environment Design. Even graduated with a degree in Animation, which I've done nothing with ever since graduating. Better late than never. Will give back as much as possible.

    I've had an account for a while and been lurking for longer still but I've just started a sketchbook thread so I figure it's time to say hello! I'm a second year 3D Games Art student at the University of Hertfordshire, currently focusing on characters. 
  • SteveRacer
    Hey,

    I'm a film and animation producer and actor in Los Angeles. I'm getting more into video game stuff lately, though I used to do mods... I've played around with Blender and made some spaceships. There's a few projects that I hope will take off and I could use some good 3D modelers. I also am a huge nerd and I love anime and do swordfighting... you can see my feature film on Amazon, it's called Altered Spirits. Anyway, hope to make some good contacts here!

    Hey why haven't you done anything with your degree? What kind of animation did you focus on?

    Hey! I got dragged along to the London meetup by Fearian and met a bunch of you lovely people!

    I'm a game designer rather than a 3D artist but it's something I'm aiming to learn so I can do more with my own designs.

    Hey there, My name is Oliver and I am a character artist and freelance illustrator.  Always looking to support new artists and offer help where I can.  I'm still fairly new to 3D art so I'd love to see what people think of my work so far.  What attracted me to polycount is the supportive atmosphere.  It is really nice to be part of a community that isn't just trying to compete with each other. catch me on twitter: @OliverJSR

    Hello everyone.  My name is Tim and my main skill is music composition which also includes live recorded performance and written transcriptions.  I have been transcribing video game soundtracks for a few years now and have composed for several game jams. It's time for me to reach for the next level.  If you need foley and design as well, please do not hesitate to ask.  

    At the same rate, I am always on the lookout for musicians and voice actors; I am oftentimes surprised by how much amazing talent comes from the most unlikely places.  Thank you!   

  • TravisMcCallum
    Hello!
    My name is Travis McCallum and I am training myself to be a VFX Artist.  Currently I practice building particle effects, materials and blueprints in UE4. Hoping to expand into other programs as my proficiency increases.

    I dropped out of graduate school for Journalism this year at age 31. (My B.A. was in Theatre.) I currently work two in-between-jobs as a server at a movie theatre and a contract video editor for a media company. I started branding myself as a content creator creating videos with AfterEffects. I had a chance encounter with two game developers at my server job whom encouraged me to do VFX in games as opposed to motion pictures.  They said the demand, job stability, medical insurance and many other incentives were there.

    I'm experiencing the joys and frustrations of being a technical artist with "full immersion."  Whenever I'm not at work, or spending T.V. time cuddling with my wonderful girlfriend, I'm hammering away on tutorials, articles, podcasts and the engine itself.  It's been two weeks since I made the leap and each day I am excited to compile a infinite combination of art inside a virtual constraint.

    Please recommend any mentors, masterclasses, podcasts, influencers and VFX you know and love to see.  Besides ArtStation, RealTimeVFX has been an invaluable resource in my continuing education.  Sadly the scope of VFX information is sparsely organized in comparison to other specializations-- which I might infer to the intense problem solving required of the job as a creative and technical expert on a myriad of subjects (anatomy, environmental, etc.)

    I hope to learn and contribute to this community.  I've only read wonderful and encouraging posts from everyone.  And if you are local to Dallas, TX-- hit me up for a beer!

  • RealFagiano
    Hiya fellow artists!!
    My name's Emanuele, I'm an italian 3D artist. I've attended a small school about game art in Florence and I'm currently looking to improve my skillset in creating game ready 3D assets and a good personal portfolio to show around when I'll be looking to be hired in the industry.

    I've been using the forum's vast knowledge pool for a while now and I think the time has come for me to start getting my feet wet.
    So by registering on this forum I hope I can get to know good people and exchange some quality feedback so we can all become killer artists and good friends.

    LET'S GO DUDE. ♥

    Hello, my name is Ryan and I'm getting back into 3D environment modeling. I originally went to school a while back for 3D modeling and animation but wasn't able to make a career out of it at the time. Lately, I've been motivated to once again pursue that path and am working hard to build up a new portfolio and to network within the game development community.

    Hi Polycount!

    I'm Davide, amateur 3d environment artist.
    I've been a silent watcher of this forum for far too long, and now that I started to work on a videogame with some other amateurs I decided to try to bring my hobby to the next level and improve for real.

    I'm so excited about joining this community, I just have to ask you to be kind about my english, since it's not my mother language.
  • JdR2
    Hi! I'm Juan Daniel, but i use JdR2 for almost everything i do online.

    I'm from Colombia and i want to be a professional 3D Animator.

    I just finish my degree in Multimedia Production 2 weeks ago, with a focus on Video games development.

    I've been doing 3D animation as a Hobby for almost 7 years doing some short things from time to time, but just considering doing it like a profession last year, although i started to take it seriously a couple a months ago.

    I hope i can share with you people something soon so i can have as much feedback as possible.

    Thanks for taking the time to read all this!

    Hi, I'm Theo, I'm a 3D generalist with character animation, currently focusing on 3D modeling and hand painted textures.

    I've been making 3D art on and off since 2001 but only taking it seriously since 2008 after graduating my animation course. Since then I've worked in various design fields, and even learned some programming so I could publish small games made with Unity.

    I would like to work with indie or even large game studios making beautiful 3d assets and handpainted or stylised textures.

    Thanks and look forward to becoming a member and a small part of this community!
  • Pryme_XIII
    Hi there,
    my name is Nick and I'm a mixed media student, who is pretty much self taught in game art (i.e. 3D/2D, modeling, sculpting, texturing).
    I'm currently working on my Bachelor Thesis, which focuses on building an environment in UE4.
    Since everything I know is based on YT, learning by doing and failing a lot, I finally decided it's about time to join this community
    to (hopefully) contribute, share and get some feedback.

    Cheers!

    Hi! 
    My name is Calyx. I'm studying Games Art and Design and I want to go into asset production, but I'm a slow learner and sometimes have trouble! I really enjoy 3D modelling despite this, particularly when it comes to creature design. I'll probably be pretty quiet most of the time, so don't expect me to be too chatty!

    Hello !

    My name is Eric, i fell down a rabbit hole in my backyard and found Zbrush. I'm generally trying to improve my digital sculpting and grasp of the software. I signed up in hopes of learning some major does and donts as i realize Zbrush is quite a pluralistic tool when it comes to workflow but that not all methods are as expedient.

    Looking forward to meeting you all, to evolve and share.
