Standard Wood Material in 3ds Max Tutorial Part 1 (Creating Textures)

Follow Me!by As you may (or may not) already know, that I have modeled my own apartment in 3ds Max. Logically I had to built quite a lot of objects that require Wood material. As I did this with the idea, that I had to import the whole mesh into Unity I didn’t try to do something fancy, because Unity (and any other 3D engine, I believe) best supports (if not only) objects with Standard material applied to them. Unity simply…

Follow Me!by As I was finishing with this grand project (previous post) I kept thinking of what should I do next. After I tried exterior/interior scene modeling I was quite sure I wanted to explore this side of 3D a bit more. So I’ve decided to build the whole apartment that I am currently living in, because, why not? 😀  It is always easiest to build something that is literally around you. And you don’t need to search for reference images, cause…

When life gives you lemons… (how I built my first exterior scene)

Follow Me!by There is a saying in my country “A woman had no problems and then she bought a pig”(Yes, it is a saying 😀). I really had no problems till I got involved in 3D. Previous work was monotonous and same old routine of same repetitive actions. And here I “bought” myself one fat “pig” and didn’t know how to manage it. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mean to interpret that saying in a negative way. Quite the opposite…

The elephant and the gang! (my first decent 3D renderes)

Follow Me!by   I got to the point where I was done with the tutorial regarding 3D and was wandering if I should get me some other tutorial or just try and do something on my own. At that time a friend of mine needed someone who could do the artwork of a game he was building so he asked me if I could help him out. The timing was just perfect! Of course I said yes! Creating 3D cartoon…

When ignorance makes you blind

Follow Me!by Just when I started practicing 3D arts I realized that I could’ve begin this whole thing way much earlier. Of course I had daily job then and most of the time I was too tired even to think about anything other that how to get more rest and sleep. (the existence at its finest) I just didn’t have enough brain power (or any power at all) to think about anything else. So all of my husbands preaches about…

Explore, experiment, enjoy! (discovering 3ds Max)

Follow Me!by As I got comfortable with 3D I started to look at other alternative 3D software programs. I new some people that already worked in this industry (true professionals) and they all were hyped about such programs as Cinema 4D, Maya and 3ds Max. Long story short I choose to try 3ds Max and to see what was all the fuss about. Once again despite the fact that I was already familiar with 3D I was nonetheless overwhelmed to…

Great course for Blender beginners

Follow Me!by Once I built my first 3D „mansion“ (previous post) and learned the essential things about Blender I felt like it was time to get into more advanced stuff. Since I knew what vertex, edge or face/polygon meant I was confident (yeah, right) and was ready for more. So I tried this great course for Bender „Product Shots in Blender“ with George Maestri (from Lynda.com). That man has not even one pleasant voice to listen to, but he has a lot…

When clueless meets 3D (how I built my 3D mansion)

Follow Me!by   First time when you open a 3D program the view is truly frightening- toolbars over toolbars, menus and way too many buttons. I remember quite well my first thoughts were „what the hell am I getting myself into“ and „this sh*t is impossible“ but then followed the most exciting one „I’m about to do some rocket science!“ :D. Luckily for me I had some Photoshop experience in the past so I was quite familiar with the interface…

Follow Me!by   Life is strange. If you figure out soon enough what You want to be in life and what makes you happy and you stick to it you are one lucky bastard! And I envy you dearly 🙂 I wish I had that. When You Know Nothing Since early childhood I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to be in life. Even in elementary school I made things up. When teacher used to ask „What do you…
