loved the interview and seeing you do your work has inspired me to start doing my own work going to try what you did start wth daz3d and upgrade i have alot of swtor rping with my guild we do alot on there and with new patchs and new everthing like the super secrect space project finally revieled its going to be better then before .I would like to talk with you on some thing if yu have the time some advice on how to get started .
Thank you for sharing with us! I am sad to see that SWTOR hasn't been a good RP experience for you. I missed SWG due to having issues getting it to download, but for me, SWTOR started an RP journey of epicness. I hope you find a new RP home soon!
I read the interview, and you may actually be able to get a 3 year student trial of Autodesk modelling software like Maya, Softimage and 3DS Max.
As much as people like Poser Pro, it's got a very...recognizable style. If you'd like to create something that's more unique (I hope that doesn't sound offensive) I'd recommend one of the aforementioned software.
Oh I'm always looking to "up my game". I'm kind of at the point now where I feel like I've peaked at my Poser skills and need to get into actual modeling. So no I am not offended.
I work full time, 40-60 hours a week, so enrolling in a school isn't in the cards, and there really isn't anything offered locally outside of ITT or AI, which aren't schools, just money scams. So not sure how Id qualify for such a thing without a student ID.
Well, I think there -are- ways, because one of the IT guys at my college managed to get his son a 3 year student subscription and the kid was like...14?
The college I attend, Loyalist, is actually a generalist animation course. Specialist animation colleges, universities and the like run 12 grand a semester, before books and living expenses. We're doing 3,500, and we learn Animation, Modelling, Game Design, Web Development, Special Effects and the like for the first two years (Year one is learning the software and fundamentals, year two is focusing on improving our skills, year three is choosing our specialization and focusing on that).
And after that you can transfer to one of the more expensive colleges for a fourth year to get a masters, effectively saving yourself 28,000 dollars in exchange for one extra year. A lot of the students get hired right out of graduation though. We have a number of people that work over seas as well (Primarily in the UK).
I know you're American, but even with the international student rates it's still probably one of the most fiscally responsible ways to do it (in my opinion). I also know the majority of Animation work for both movies and game design is actually moving to Canada as well. A lot of people in California have moved up here and work in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
But as a full time employed person that may not be considering this as a permanent, sustaining career I can see why you'd probably avoid such a commitment.
And while I haven't had much experience with Poser Pro I do hear that it's one of the easiest ways to get some functional lighting in your scene, where as with the software I mentioned earlier you're probably looking at hours of work just on that alone. (But then you do have the freedom and power, it's just knowing how to use it.)
I also know for a fact that Monty Oum (Of Red Vs. Blue, Dead Fantasy and now RWBY fame) uses Poser Pro for the majority of his animations, although he has a shorter Mocap to Poser work flow, where the new animation team for RvB uses Maya for clean ups and face animations. (It's a bit evident when you know what to look for).
Very cool and a nice read. I played on SWG a while back as well and had fun making my character and running around the universe but the fun cooled for me when I really couldn't create what I wanted to in blasters. I really wanted to make some very cool blasters and be a blaster dealer, but alas it did not happen. Was there for the launch of SWTOR, but again, found it to be repetitive and same basic play style as the others, so lost interest. Love the designs and the worlds they created, just got tired of the same actions.
Your art really is very cool and I love seeing what you create and what you do with the images and bring other parts of SW alive. There is always cool stuff to come up with, just let your imagination go and see what happens.
Continuing to look forward to your cool works. Have a great night.
