Hello there, I teach 3D Art and Design using Blender or Autodesk Maya (only) for the full production of 3D assets, including:
- Hard Surface Modelling
- Object Sculpting
- UV Unwrapping & Layout
- Procedural Texturing
- Character Modelling & Sculpting
- Character Grooming
- Character Rigging
- 3D Animation
- Scene Lighting & Rendering
- Motion Tracking.
- Video Sequencing
Note that the last three are only possible in Blender, not Maya. I graduated with an overall score of Distinction (75%), early 2019, and spent my time at university mastering the entire production pipeline in Maya for not only myself, but to volunteer in assisting my fellow classmates and other undergraduates along the way. Solving problems and troubleshooting became something I did for anyone and everyone who needed help, and teaching while doing so simply came naturally thereon.
Over the past year or so, I’ve also been deep diving into Blender 2.8 and up, in order to thoroughly acquaint myself with its rather extensive pipeline. In particular, its node based shading and compositing editors for procedural texturing and post processing, motion tracking and video sequencing suite, and modifier stack for procedural/non-destructive modelling.
My approach to teaching and lesson planning is customisation. Every lesson is tailored to the individual student or group, whatever their current skill level and experience is. From no prior knowledge to advanced but in need of refreshing, the structure of every lesson will be from the ground up, configured by the students’ needs. My teaching philosophy is patience and prudence in all things, that no one is a failure for not understanding something, and that help is to be always given when asked for.
I tutor both online and in person.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I am located in Toorak and can travel within roughly a 5 – 10 kilometre radius or into Melbourne city itself. I do the bulk of my tutoring online, however.
Rates are $65 an hour, including LearnMate’s commission surcharge and am generally available throughout weekdays. Thank you for looking over my profile.
