Santhosh Koneru

United States,  Hollywood Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Digital Production for Entertainment - 3D Generalist,  October 04, 2016
Hi! im Santhosh, im a 3D generalist. My passion for art started when i was 4yrs old and it grew along with my age, which eventually led me into starting an art website called I self taught several production softwares. Then i started working as freelance Graphics designer for about 4yrs, but my passion for art and the huger to learn more made me move to City of Angels. I enrolled into 2yr program at Gnomon School of visual effects. It's been over 7 amazing months at this school and also my 7 months of experience in MAYA (LOL), with the help of amazing instructors and the most talented peers iv been able to master my skills faster than expected.

With all the knowledge i gain here, i would someday like to bring my own characters to life.

I love the challenges, not because they excite me. But because they create a sense of fear in me and fear is something i don't like. So, i accept the challenge and give it my best to conquer the fear.
