How you got into cg
Hi guys I've always been curious about other people's stories on how they got into cg and became pros. I think It's interesting, why don't we share our stories?
Me, for example, I've always been interested in being a biologist or scientist, something involving nature that i love a lot, on the other hand i loved going to the cinema and i pretty much went there 3 times a month, i watched every big movie that came out and someday when i was 10 (2010) i was with my brother just chilling in a cafe waiting for a movie to start and suddenly he started talking about an area that, even though i went to the cinema a lot, i never thought about it wich is film vfx (he brought transformers as an example, a movie series wich i like a lot) and the more he talked the more i fell in love with it and so i just thought that's what i wanna do when i grow up.
When i finally passed 9th grade all my friends kept in the same school following what i wanted to follow before, science. It was hard to say goodbye but i followed my dream and went to a multimedia professional school, there in the first year i learnt programming websites, making posters and such things... when the first year was over i thought where the hell is cg and when the 2nd year came i finally got introduced to cg and the software we used was blender. In the introduction class we watched videos about it and the way my teacher spoke about 3D completely ignited my spark again and as soon as i got home I searched where to learn blender and i found cg cookie, i went through the blender basics flow's free videos, i liked it a lot so asked my mother for a subscription and by the end of the month i was already better than my teacher, he even let me do a class about cycle's node editor. Now by the time i'm writing this i finished 2nd year of multimedia and there're 6 months left before i make a year of blender.
So... i hope you guys liked it, now i want to hear about you. Share your stories please!
