OT: How did you end up at cgtalk?


#1

So how did you end up here? What where you looking for? Did one of your cg friends tell you this was a cool place and you’d be visiting daily?

I ended up here when searching for articles to read. It was the Shaoling Soccer article then I started browsing the site and do so regularly.

Whats your little story?

I must be getting old, I can’t remember how I ended up here :smiley:


#4

I took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.


#5

Ate some bad fruit. Been here ever since.


#6

Leigh wooed me. :love:


#7

I’m a victim of viral marketing.


#8

Someone had posted a print of one of Stahlberg’s girls (this one) at school with what used to be CGChannel/CGTalk’s URL written in pen underneath. I lurked for awhile (just awestruck) before I got the nerve to start posting up my drawings.

Thought that person with the black cloak and the sythe looked odd…

been here ever since.


#10

Found it on google while searching for info on animation schools. Then I checked out some of the gallery boards, out of curiosity.
A quick glimpse, and I got the idea that I might learn something more from this site. :wink:


#11

#12

Same here, I think.

A classmate of me was browsing on cgtalk in class. I watched him go through some of the wip forums. 3D education on that school was not of a good standard. I still decided to specialize in 3D on that school because i could now learn lots of things from cgtalk.:thumbsup:


#15

I’ve been lurking here for a long time, I used to drool over the galleries back when CGTalk was still a part of CGChannel. I just recently created this account so i could finally start posting, but this community has already helped me a lot.


#16

yup. cgchannel used to link to cgtalk.


#17

I was doing some contests and posting on other forums…and Fredrik Hultqvist (Apt Pupil) told me about the cool challenges over here; that’s how I got trapped :deal:


#18

i wrote an email to “meats mier” (think thats how you spell it, meats if its not, im sorry) asking how he got into 3d and the medium as a whole, he ended up pointing me in this direction towards cgtalk, and been here ever since :wink: cheers meats! ( still in lurking mode …sorta )

CG Channel too… a long time ago, when that site was a nice place to visit :smiley:

I found out about CGtalk through friends I went to school with at Full Sail. This site was great for inspiration during labs when I was lacking ideas. This place would rock if it wasn’t for all the nerds. :thumbsup:
