I've always had an interest in art and animation, but I didn't actually create much of it until fairly recently. The beginning was when an uncle gave me Flash 4 as a gift. It was old, even then, but I didn’t know this at the time. I gradually learnt the ins and outs of it and created some simple animations. Nothing too fancy of course, but enough to get some practice.|
After I finished school, I went straight into a Multimedia TAFE course. Amongst other lessons, we learnt about using Flash to make animations and interactive content, as well as 3D modelling and rendering. I greatly enjoyed the course and felt that I got a lot out of it, but I had no luck getting a job in the industry.
After a year of unemployment, I went back and did another TAFE course, this time in surveying, which is hardly a creative line of work. I decided that I didn’t want to lose my artistic edge, so I started drawing again.
I’ve threatened myself that I’ll get a DeviantArt account for years now. Finally, here it is.
