Winner

Zahra Tilling

United Kingdom

Having explored some parts of the vast universe that is 3D art, I'm super eager to learn as much as possible in order to pursue a career related to 3D. I grew up watching 3D animated movies; Shrek, Tangled and Up to name a tiny portion. I guess that's what mainly fuelled my wonder into how it was all made.
