Level Up Your Skills with Alex Alvarez



In this episode of the KitBash3D Festival we interview Alex Alvarez from his epic Dungeon Home Office (that's the technical term). Alex is the founder and director of Gnomon, and it's likely you have followed one of Gnomon's educational videos to elevate your career in the VFX or game industry at some point in your life. This is the perfect episode for students or anyone looking to break into the industry, because Alex breaks down how Gnomon prepares its students for their careers as professional artists and arms them with much more than just an art degree. Enjoy!


Alex also breaks down some of his personal workflows, and discusses the importance of having a library of assets at your fingertips in today's industry. Below is a shot Alex created using the Fairy Tale kit. 

Towards the end of the video, Alex begins a demo of setting up a scene using his personal library of assets. He is a KitBasher at heart and has quite a bit of insight to share! You won't want to miss out!
