"Having got the education I got at Vertex School and having gotten to come on a job like this cements my future even better and this is one of the most exciting things about the experience I had at Vertex School and getting to work at Pixomondo.

If I was to give an aspiring artist advice, I would say you need to be prolific, not afraid to make bad art. You need experience. Your first 3d model will not be something you put on your Artstation, show off and everyone loves. Make 100 crappy models if that is what it takes to get your first portfolio-worthy one. Don't get discouraged. Be prolific."

- Andrew Baker, Unreal Generalist @ Pixmondo
