ProTalk: 3D Artist Benjamin Nicholas
Ben, it is awesome to talk to you again. Watching your
career grow over the last few years has been really in-
spiring. That said, let’s go back to the start. How the heck
did you first get into 3D modeling?
I was a freshman in high school when I was first intro-
duced to 3d. I had a very close friend who had been doing
it as a hobby for a while, and he handed me a copy of Bryce
5 and Discreet 3ds Max 5. I remember being 13 and opening
Max. My immediate reaction was “I will never be able to un-
derstand this”, so I closed and uninstalled it immediately.
Afterwards, I opened up Bryce and had an easier time.
Keep in mind that it was all just boolean modeling, and that
will give you a general idea of the kind of art I was making.
All that said, I started making shorts in Bryce; and it would
take weekends to render if not longer.
