Hello, friends! My real name is Valera. I’m excited to welcome you to my new blog dedicated to my favorite profession.

I am an Art Director and 3D artist, and I’ve been working in this field for over 10 years. I would like to share with you some of my experiences and achievements.

Like many of you, I taught myself the profession using lessons and resources available online. I had to work hard and use software every day to achieve my goals. I mostly work in Cinema 4D and use the Octane Render rendering engine.

I started my career as a graphic designer in an office where I worked for a year and a half, then moved on to motion design at GroupStar in St. Petersburg, where I worked for a couple of years. However, for most of my career, I have worked as a freelancer. During this time, I have had the opportunity to work with clients such as VIVO, Gazprom, Sberbank, various government organizations, and many other large companies.

Mainly, I specialize in creating television commercials and media content for events, but I also create music videos and special effects for movies. I am convinced that my profession is not only exciting but also very important in the world of modern technology. I hope that my blog will be useful and interesting for you!

Here I will share my experience and knowledge in the field of 3D graphics, as well as talk about new trends and events in the industry. On the pages of the blog, you will find a lot of interesting content – from reflections on the interaction of art and technology to reviews of movies and games in the 3D and art sphere.

The “News” section covers the latest technologies and trends in the industry, announcements of upcoming events and conferences, as well as key information about new releases and software updates. Additionally, we review movies, games, and TV shows in the 3D and art fields.

You will also find guest posts from other industry professionals and random fun and interesting facts related to art and technology.
