are you from the states? It is incredible what kind of subjects you guys can do in high school! In my high school days I had the choice between geography history and social studies. No way of even thinking about touching a 3d app.
But it looks quite cool.

America high school is 18 to 19 right?
I was really worried! great pieces of work here

as 3D is erm "relatively new" does age matter much getting work?

Im probably a late starter at 26!...

simply amazing. even though they're just following a few tutorials and then taking their knowledge and applying it, i've gotta say i'm impressed with the kids' results. you can't expect much of high-schoolers learning this early, but there seems to be a lot of untapped talent in your class(es).

at the same time, there were no 3d classes offered at my HS (stupid catholic college prep school blah) so i had to take drawing 1 and 2, and then go to college primarily for film, with a concentration in 3d computer modeling/animation. if i took a few more months worth of classes i would love to become a professor or even just a teacher so kids could learn about the trade they want to focus on earlier in life. just seeing the projects they turn in would be payment enough...
