Cheryl Chen

ANIME 3D ART AND FANDOM

DISCUSSED DURING THE SHOW:

  • How amazing artwork is created almost exclusively in blender with polygonal modelling
  • The unexpected fame that came out of Cheryl posting her work on Instagram.
  • The fact that you don't have to be "good at art" in order to get into and be good at 3D character modelling and sculpting.
  • The benefit of online communities for those just starting out. They offer the opportunity to get WIP feedback and have free tutorials.

"So when I was starting out, I did post some of my work in progress on that site and then people would give you feedback based on that. So that was a place where I got, I guess, learned a lot as well."
