Launching soon…’Let’s learn 3D Animation’

The English version of my FREE 3D animation training series is almost ready. I am having very good response to the original Marathi training, ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation!‘. I will soon start posting the English version. I hope you will like it.

The complete series will introduce to you, various aspects of 3D graphics and we will talk about animation as well.

I am feeling very happy to present to you this short-film. This is a story of ‘Tingu’, a little lamp, trying to resolve the magic cube. After struggling a lot and still not being able to solve, he finally gets angry. At the end, ‘Tingu’ finds the cube resolving ‘magically’.


This short-film is developed by students and fresher 3d artists, at ADVAITA STUDIOS. Everybody enjoyed working on this project and everybody worked hard too, while learning. This is a part of a big free training series (currently in marathi) called- ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation’. This free training series covers most of the fundamental things about 3D animation and also about computer graphics in general.

3 answers about Career in 3d animation industry

Since 2003, I have been asked for guidance, so many times, about making career in 3D animation field. Most of the questions are from parents asking for their 10th or 12th std children. And other are from those who want to enter in the field themselves.
