there wasn't any special training in this field.
3DTotal: How easy is it finding a job similar to the one you have now when the colleges lack the necessary training and will companies readily train applicants whilst being employed?
Fabricio: Working with experienced people was the way I learned the most things. Solving problems day by day forced me to develop new techniques and look for new software. Of course the courses I did in the beginning helped me a lot especially with the basics, but doing CG eight hours a day in my work and making my personal projects at home was the best course I had.
I can't exclude the importance of my college. I didn't exclusively study CG there, but it helped me to have a good visual sense and methodology. Understanding the foundation of drawing, human anatomy and perspective helps you to be a better artist.
Today there are more courses and colleges specialized in CG here in Brazil, and with the growing technology it is getting easier to be a qualified artist and find a new job.
