Posted by on August 23rd, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I’m a designer, so I work with visuals, but 3D art has always astounded me. I tried to learn it one and was able to create a cylinder with a cone sticking out of its side. So yeah. I gave up on that form of creative, but my respect for 3D artists has only deepened. […]
