About Me

My name is Victor Castro and I'm a 3D Artist. Since I started creating in 3D it was like discovering a new world where I could create whatever I wanted. The passion, hard work and curiosity for knowing everything about computer generated graphics made my evolution quite fast. The bachelor degree I took in Interactive Media Design at Madeira University gave me the opportunity to experience and explore much more mediums and opened my mind on how to create, making my comprehension and knowledge more complete in how a full project from concept to final product works. Recently I've been working in various types of personal 3D projects and trying to get my way into my field of work.
