The Strange Sports Fan - Soccer, Football and Celebrities Screensavers and Wallpapers in 3D

It is almost certain that you know someone like me.

The guy that hated all school physical activities, the guy that always finished last every race.

Maybe you are a bit like me also.

Because of this, I grew up disliking everything about soccer and football.

Unlike my friends who knew all about the famous players, the coaches and all the football tactics.

In spite of everything, my childhood was a very happy one. After all, the activities related to sports were a small part of my daily living, fortunately.

On the other hand, I was born with the gift of pencil drawing very nicely. My friends, the sports fans, came to me for help at the art lessons.

So a few years a go I came across Blender3d a free open source software that assists you in drawing 3D pictures and making 3D animations. There are lots of Blender3d movies out there on the net for you to watch.

After mastering the basics in 3D drawing and 3D animation a BRILLIANT IDEA occurred to me:

Now I have the perfect tool to MAKE PEACE with sports

I began to draw the most famous soccer and football teams logos in 3D. Then I started to make simple animations of these 3D logos with different camera movements and with different scenarios.

Also, transforming 2D pictures of sports celebrities like players and coaches, created a challenge to me, but it come out not so bad.

The next step was to publish my work on Youtube, witch I did.

Without realizing it, I had become a SPORTS FAN in my own way.

Two years ago I learned how to turn my 3D animations into Sports and Celebrities screensavers, wallpapers and desktop calendars in 3D.

I started my own website and it became my hobby.

So this was my short story to you.

Remember that

Sometimes our weakest points can lead us to positive outcomes.

Bye now.

Make a visit to my site pages3d.net and maybe you will find something you like.
