Eldar Zakirov from Uzbekistan (WOTF XXII), is now working as a designer of advertising and promotion in animation and 3D art. On the Internet you can find his work at http://dartheldarious.deviantart.com.
Melanie Tregonning (WOTF XII), "Things have been pretty good over here (she lives in Australia), I just bought a skeleton to study from (she is an illustrator).
The most significant moment for me from last year, was realizing pretty early on in the competition that I wasn't going to win (grand prize). The whole experience made it crystal clear just how much further I need to go, how much more I need to learn. But it also reminded me that the only thing really standing between me and that goal is a whole lot of hard work to make it happen."
Stay tuned tomorrow. Lots of photos and event information coming your way! - Joni
