Unpopular opinions:

1) Not a fan of Dark Souls. At all. 

2) Game of Thrones doesn’t interest me.

3) Give me sci fi all day long

4) But not Firefly or Doctor Who.

techno-dragon said: What program do you use for 3D modeling?

I’ve been all Maya for everything until I started teaching myself how to use Zbrush. I’m trying to get used to a more scaleable workflow for higher detail objects.

Okay, I’ve learned a bit more about high poly modeling. Let’s list out what the steps appear to be now:

1) sketch out major forms, whether it be in Maya or Zbrush who cares

2) if it’s a detailed object or a clothed figure or something, make lots of subtools for different parts

3) seriously go fucking nuts because it literally does not matter if you have billions of polygons by the time you’re done. work super low poly to super high poly only for the tiniest details. work as much as you can in the lower poly versions.

4) who the hell cares about unwrapping a high poly object? not the gaming industry. go straight to topogun to make a low poly version

5) Maya will be able to open the low poly version thank god so do what you’re used to to UV unwrap there

6) import both to xNormal and project the high poly details onto the low poly UV map for AO bakes, normal mapping, etc. whatever the fuck you want (I don’t know how displacement maps work yet)

7) do everything else like you’ve always done. congrats you are a winner

Thanks, me! I knew I had it in me. 

Guilty Pleasure:

Listening to artists talk smack about stuff while they make really gorgeous art in livestreams.

So how about tea puns

-This subject is steeped in mystery.

-Loose leaves fell trees.

-Tannin beds always leave me with such a bitter taste in my mouth.

-My lumps. My lumps. My lovely sugar lumps.

Ever since I opened the AC vents up all the way in my office, it’s created positive pressure in my room, which pushes the door closed so that whenever the AC turns on, it nearly latches shut and is held in place there with a bit of force. 

Hexe thinks it’s haunted. She will sit outside the door some distance and complain loudly at it until someone opens it for her, and then she SPRINTS past, often leaping, as if it’s a monster under the bed. 

Hexe, please.

Trying to come up with a Grineer-sounding name for my boss character concept

Ligna Kaar

Lignus Kher

Leegnim Kar

Lignim Ter

Litnaar Kell

Litnaak Ar

Leegnos Kos

These are based loosely on “lightning arm” idk

Also:

Veskaar (based on Vespa for “wasp”)

I imagine him to be a somewhat lower ranking, being as he is kept away from the Tenno whenever possible. He is a decorated Corpus fighter though because electricity. Very valuable on those fronts. Either sergeant or lieutenant.

Alternate suggestions welcome.

THIS IS GODDAMNED GORGEOUS

I have a soft spot for 3-wheeled cars, especially if they are electric. Aptera was my dream car in college (if you don’t count stuff like Lambos) and holy crap has anyone ever seen the Aero 3s? Hot fucking damn… it’s a gas car but still

nope I got no time for requests like that outta the blue!

you mean kinda like WE3? I have not! Last time I drew a cat it was in my chibi style.

Anonymous said: How many times do your projects crash on a daily basis?

Photoshop almost never crashes on me anymore, but I save often anyway in case something else crashes my machine. Maya crashes during certain operations but it’s always something I did wrong lol. Zbrush… I don’t understand it yet so I crash a couple times a day if I’m doing a lot of work there. I often leave like a million things open all day and put my computer to sleep at night instead of turning it off so sometimes I’ll get a BSOD just for having too much open for too long, like once a month or so. 

My computer is about mid-range in terms of performance, nothing super special but 16 gigs of RAM is nice and lets me be careless with how much I leave open.

I save like every couple of minutes out of habit in all programs I work in and I back up my project files on Dropbox so I don’t have to worry about losing work!
