Art Spotlight: First Aid Tank


Cristian Villalobos writes:

My name is Cristian Villalobos and I am an Environment Artist from San José, Costa Rica. I am a senior in Simulation and Digital Entertainment currently in my last semester at the University of Baltimore.

I took my first 3D modeling class a year and a half ago. They were teaching Autodesk 3ds Max back then, but I was not able to install the program on my personal computer after several attempts. Because of this issue, I asked my professor if he would let me use Blender outside of class for projects. He agreed, as long as I used 3ds Max for in-class assignments. I ended up teaching myself Blender by learning the keyboard shortcuts, watching YouTube videos, and reading through forums and documentation.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
