Argentina,  Buenos Aires Animschool,  The 3D Character Program,  November 19, 2014
During all of my life I've been studying. I've started with Fine Arts, after that I've studied Dramatic Art, and later Animation.
It took me a long time to figured it out what I really want to do, but now I know.
I love 3D animation. So I've become in 3D modeler.
I know that I have some skills and these are: drawing, modeling and I'm a really hardworker.
