One of the most promising areas of modern architectural rendering is 3D design (it stood out from graphic design in a separate direction). This profession requires specialists to have a good level of knowledge and experience in working with 3D editors and professional 3D modeling programs.
In order to become an expert in this field, just the desire and artistic taste not enough, that requires a special art education. In addition, it must be remembered that the work of 3D designers has much in common with the work of graphic designers, but the work of visualizers, modelers, animators, and other 3D specialists is characterized by its specific features.
A 3D designer is a professional in the field of three-dimensional graphics, who customizes computer characters for game animation, provides movement of drawn models and objects. Speaking in a high syllable, the art of a 3D designer is to breathe the soul into the character and create a living, animated world around.
There are various specializations in the field of 3D design, here are some of them:
A visualizer is a specialist who creates design projects on the basis of documentation, plans, sketches, and drawings. The fate of the whole project often depends on high-quality visualization.
The visualizer can translate any ideas into 3D: from architectural structures and interior design to clothing collections. For successful implementation in the profession, the visualizer must have a variety of qualities and skills, both creative and technical: volume-spatial thinking, artistic taste, sense of style, be aware of the latest trends in design and be proficient in computer programs for 3D modeling.
A 3D animator is a specialist who is able to customize computer characters for game animation, as well as high-poly models (visualization takes place with the help of graphics polygons) for filmmaking and video.
Using the classic principles of animation, 3D-animator creates three-dimensional dynamic objects that perform a variety of movements. Despite the fact that the 3D-animator uses modern computer technology, the profession is based on the classic principles of animation, known since the days of Walt Disney.
A 3D modeler is a specialist who, on the basis of real and imaginary objects, builds their visual models, at the same time working through every detail: from the dimensions and bends to all the roughness and flaws of the simulated object.
This profession has a very low entry threshold and attracts more and more creative people – artists, architects, sculptors. But to become a professional in it, one needs to work hard, as well as know the basics of topology, shading, lighting, etc.
