Greetings everyone

My name is Urs i am from Switzerland and i worked as a freelance 3d artist many years ago, mainly for television ads and exhibitions.

I did my first steps in 3d, in 1998. In parallel i am a music producer. The latter took over around 2010. But, i want to 3d again, need to learn a lot, however.

So much has changed in the past 10 years and i am eager to learn 3Dcoat as my go-to tool. 

I look forward to version 2021, as do many, i guess. Until then, i just try to learn the basics with the software and hope, with the 2021 release i have the foundation to really get started.

That's the short about me. Thanks for reading!

Hello!  I started a career many years ago, as a computer programmer.  I achieved a job working for a home improvement company for nine years, but found that my creative desires in that job were not being fulfilled.   Towards the end of that job, I started to stress, and become depressed.   When I requested a leave of absence to deal with what I felt was a building mental break down, they decided to let me go.  

Throughout my education, and later my career as a programmer, I often thought about getting into 3D modelling, and animation.   I often experimented with several programs over the years, and I wasn't too bad, but not the greatest either.   First 3D Max, because that was what the school I went to after I was fired used for training.  Later Maya, and now Blender.   Eventually I found the Second Life simulators, which allowed me to practice and improve my skills and make a little money on the side doing it.

Now, I'm working on my first full mesh playable creature.   Initially I intend to just make Second Life avatars, but once I am efficient at it in Second Life, I intend to apply my skills to other mediums.  I bought 3D coat consumer in the hopes of finding an efficient way to generate normal maps for my creatures.   I'm not the best at it yet, but I keep practicing and experimenting with it, and finding it very very powerful, I'm just clumsy with it yet.    Give me time though, and I'll improve.  Maybe some day I will actually make my own game.   One can hope right?

It's hard to keep hope sometimes, but I manage.   Thanks for the well wishes though!
