When I was introduced to 3d, I had no idea what i was doing, I think I made our solar system. Also I used the 3d application bone system to outline a cartoon character.
I would say what inspired me to really get into 3d and 3d animation was Babylon 5 and Mainframes Reboot. Yeah I know they weren’t the best looking shows at first. But season after season they became better, animation wise and visually.
This to me gives me hope that I will get better the more I work at my craft.
