|Pikachu by Cameron Tempest-Hay|
Cameron has got a head start on his studies here at Escape Studios by modeling all sorts of characters and creatures, including the charming Pikachu on the left, and Clank, shown below.
And why not? Nowadays there are all kinds of online resources available to get started on your digital studies, long before you start at university.
Maya, the principal software used in 3D animation, grants free licenses for student learners.
And there are plenty of places to learn 3D animation online. For example, we recommend Mike Hermes' excellent site at YouTube, with plenty of short, clear and simple tutorials.
If you're thinking of applying to study with us, we recommend downloading some software and doing a few online tutorials on your own time. It's a great way to find out if a career in the digital creative industries is for you.
Cameron's excellent artwork is an inspiration to all our students.
