Conrad has been around Blender52 for as long as I can remember, and honestly it has been such a privilege having him as part of our community. Conrad is 13 years old and lives on a boat with his family as they travel around the globe. Yet he still some how finds time to learn and take part in Blender52. I have really enjoyed watching Conrad grow over the months, from a literal beginner, to a full fledged artist with serious skills and a fantastic career in 3D ahead of him.
Here is what Conrad had to say about his spot as featured Artist:
"Hey everyone, my name is Conrad. I've been a blender user for around 5 years now, and participated in Blender 52 last year. As Abe already mentioned above, I live on a boat, which is a lot of fun. However it can be hard at times, for example we have to reply on solar power, meaning we dont always have electricity. So how did I get started in 3D? As a kid growing up on a boat, I spent most of my time outside and I had hardly heard of the internet. So when I got an email, I discovered a forum for macro photography. I used the family camera to take bug photos and got really into it, and while on the forum one day I came across another photographer who had made a post about Blender. I tried out the program, and even though what I had made was straight from hell I didn't care."
"After using blender for around 3 years, I joined the Blender52 discord server. I made a prompt for it, and even though it didn't turn out exactly how I would've liked, I kept at it. I missed quite a few weeks because I took a few trips that year, but I still learned a lot from the weeks I participated in. Blender52 is where I gained most of my blender knowledge that I use in my projects today, and honestly it's probably where some of my best renders came from."
