A talented 3D artist came back to her roots to demonstrate some of the latest software to interactive media students at West Nottinghamshire College.

Sophie Rack, 25, who studied at the college in 2014, gave a hands-on demonstration to students on the HND interactive media course, which focused on adding lighting to animated designs.

Sophie began her studies at the college, followed by the HND and then a degree at the University of Derby.

She now works as in-house 3D artist for a company called Lightmap in Farnsfield.

Sophie said: “I’ve always been drawn to being creative and I just stuck at it and worked hard at college.

“I’m very fortunate to be in a design role where I can create art in many different ways.

“It’s been good to be able to forward some of my skills to today’s students and get them to see how to use Light Studio alongside the LightWave software package.

“They’ve enjoyed using the package and being able to experiment with their own 3D designs.”
