News: 2.5 DVD Update

I've been very busy working on the dvd contents and here are a couple more items that I want to highlight. (Note that the things I've highlighted only represent a small number out of the total number of tutorials on the dvd.)

Waving Flag (you can use your Country's flag, of course)


"Starcraft II"-inspired (Terran Banshee) spacecraft
(this will be animated and done with better textures)
Yes, I will TEACH you how to model something like this.



Temporary materials applied for better clarity





Back to my cave...

News: More 2.5 DVD Contents Update

Time for another update of the DVD's contents! BTW, there are plenty of videos that fall into the "reference video" category, the things being posted are more project-oriented subjects.

Basic modeling exercises




Leaf Texturing


Building a Farmville-styled Cartoon Scene

The level of detail is really geared for more distant overhead viewing, but it's still tolerable when viewed closer.



Also

  • Guidelines for Learning 3D Graphics and Animation
  • A More Efficient Way to Render Solid Wireframes

More updates soon...

Previsualization (Past, Present, and Future) Documentary - Part 1

I watched this excellent documentary and couldn't resist sharing it with you. It's about the importance of creating previsualization (previs) for CG and Live Action movies. Frankly, a lot of what they call previs I would be happy to call "finished"!

Check it out, I found it very interesting and fun to watch.



(Yeah, I know, get back to working on the DVD!) :p
