Thank you for sharing your journey so far with our readers. Let’s begin: please introduce yourself and let us know how long ago your journey started? What drew you to art? Any early influences?

Vinicius

Hello 3dtotal fans, i started my career in June of 2015 i was 26 and just got dumped from a graphic design studio, and decided to start on 3D. I always loved art, specially music. I am a drummer on my spare time.

What training or learning did you do in those beginning stages? Could you see your progression?

Vinicius

I studied at Melies College in são paulo and this was after i finished the course… the College was a nice start but my progression was most of self taught and working on industry.

Were you always happy with what you produced, or was there a turning point where you thought; “This is it, I’ve made it!”?

Vinicius

Nah, we always think that what we do is a complete crap. I am trying to evolve constantly and i never think i am getting there, but i always sure that i am trying to improve.
