I’m on a mission to strengthen my skills in CG 3D. I want to be faster and smarter with all aspects of 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, and rendering. “Speed is the key” has been my motto for years, and now I’m really applying it to myself. I’ll be publishing models everyday in Softimage or Zbrush or both. I also want to meet the demands of high end modeling standards set by websites like Turbosquid. I’ll post all my work for sale on Turbosquid for nominal prices. Some of the greater challenges of the day was finding a good workflow to quickly get content uploaded to Turbosquid that meets their “Checkmate” standards. I find it interesting that rendering is the least important to selling models, according to the Checkmate standards, yet I know a good render can catch your eye. I think the catch is to give the entire scene to the customer, and let them decide what to take or leave. My goal is to keep this fast, good, and not my best. As I increase in efficiency, the quality should climb.
Here is the first and second models from the past two days.
More to come, stay tuned!
