Ep.58: Carlos Ortega Elizalde about learning 3D art by himself and his artistic journey

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Nov 23, 2017 •  Interviews

Carlos is a self taught 3D artist and graphic designer from Mexico. He studied Graphic Design, but since he discovered 3D, it became his passion and he learned everything by himself in his free time, using software documentation, books and internet tutorials.

He is most known for his stunning character designs, perfectly rendered in 3D.

He is currently working on a short film of his own with some of his friends. Can’t wait to see it 🙂

His dream as an artist has always been to leave a little part of himself for the industry and that’s why he wants to create online tutorials for aspiring CG artists to learn from.
