Default Landed first freelance gig

Hi Everyone,

This is a great day for me, I landed my first freelance gig today. Its not a big project but hey its exposure.

I can thank 3dmirage and the training I took there for the exposure. I am also on the list to be interviewed for a internship at 3dmirage. I love that school. I wish I had went there before I spent all that money going to IADT for my bachelors.

Well done mate!!!!! good to see some positive in this oh so negative world. Good luck with it man!! A door has opened for you so lets hope it either permits a great alliance or opens the path to multitudes of other doors.

cheers bullet

At least you are doing what you want to do, unlike me, being a Surveyor just isnt fun anymore.

thanks everyone. I am already finding out freelancing is challenging work. LOL! I have to model a nixon mask and I cant find great reference images. The mask has to be as close as possible to the real thing. So I guess I am going to have to go out to a costume shop and take pictures.
