Featured Art Professions
A 3D modeler is an artist who uses computer software to generate static or animated characters, art, or illustrative assets as three-dimensional models.
These artists render objects in a digital space and help bring visual assets to life.
What was your motivation for taking this career path?
I took an interest in all forms of art from a very young age. When I was around 9 years I old, I developed my own characters in 2D that I drew for many years, mostly in the form of cartoon strips that I made for myself and friends. When I was about 13 years old my art teacher showed us the behind the scenes of the movie Toy Story. It was at that point that I took an interest in 3D work and years later got a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts & Animation from the Art Institute of Colorado. I am thrilled that Amazing Facts and other ministries now produce 3D visualizations so that our inspiration to create compelling 3D artwork doesn’t have to come from secular sources.
What do you do on an average day?
On an average day I have several big projects that I am working on and I work toward those goals. 3D takes time and is not as instant as other forms of media, so that is something to consider. Sometimes projects can feel drawn out, but it’s all worth it in the end :)
How do you express your faith through your art?
Working in Ministry, everything I create has the potential to make a lasting difference in someone’s life. At Amazing Facts we have heard and seen many stories of people coming to Christ through our media and it’s amazing to be just a small part of that process!
