How did studying at ARC Academy help you get started in the studio?
Studying at ARC Academy helped me not only develop the necessary work skills and my creative potential but also put me in an environment close to working in a real studio. Teamwork, meeting deadlines, and creating 3D models that are consistent with the art style and meet technical requirements are some of the things I first encountered at ARC. All of this helped me get a better idea of what working in a studio is like.
