"I am Natalia Pérez and I am originally from Barcelona. I am currently working in Trust and
Safety for a social media platform. I am planning to keep learning 3d modelling/Animation
and build upon what I’ve learnt at Dorset College to eventually make a career in this industry."
Why did you choose the 3D Modelling Course?
The main reason to choose this is that I am interested in the concept design process such as creating characters and 3d environments. I previously used Blender for modelling very simple 3d objects, but I wanted to do this course to learn the basics of modelling and animation as it is very important to have a solid foundation. That helped me to have a clearer path on how to progress
How was your experience studying at Dorset College?
I had a great experience during the enrolment, they teach a lot of content in a short period of time. Having a weekly project like creating a 3d model, learning to animate a character etc. kept challenging me and pushing me to get better. Looking at other students' amazing work is very satisfying and encourages you to keep learning. I believe that a teacher reviewing your work is beneficial for you, you can get very good advice, improve your designs and polish your ideas.
Would you recommend the course? What would you say for those
entering the field?
I would recommend it for anyone that wants to learn the fundamentals of creating 3d objects & animation and is not, at this point, sure how to start. If somebody decides to take this course I would recommend learning the basics of Blender just to get familiar with the tool. It is not required to have previous knowledge, but I think you will probably take more advantage of the course. And remember, just enjoy the process as much as you can!
