Awesome 3D Links

Hi Guys! This is a list of some really fantastic 3D Resources and tutorials that have made significant improvements to my use and understanding of 3D. I'm now compiling them here for you to look at! I'll update this list as I go. Some are Maya-specific (That's what I use), some aren't application specific, and some are for other apps but still transferrable to all.

Modelling:
Ryan Kittleson's fantastic modelling tutes
Cheap clouds without Fluids

Texturing/Lighting
Making Sense of VRay
Introduction to bump, normal and displacement textures

Miscelaneous:
10 reasons why your renders suck
Light - A detailed tutorial
Big Guide to Drawing the Body
BlackRougeDream's Useful Collection
:iconjouste:'s Creative Commons Concepts
www.puppet.tfdv.com/download/s…
www.hdrlabs.com/sibl/index.htm…

Quick tips:
- Blur your 3D ouptut by .5pixels to make a cg image softer and look like a photograph!
- Add a ring of ambience to your eye irises to make your eyes really shine and pop!

Awesome lighting advice from people who know more than I do:
Dark scenes
Night time and darkness are traditionally created by using lots of contrasting light
Never make things dark, that just makes them hard to see
Blue fill with yellow key gives impression of darkness and indoor light
Fill isn't always your enemy
Use other films, old ones, for reference.

Joint Orient Issue in Maya!
Fix your rotation order issues by editing joint orient in component mode and then typing:

Journal History

Hi guys!

Exciting news for me a few days ago, having received my very first Daily Deviation! Thanks to PolyMune for featuring it and to all the amazing people who were kind enough to comment.

As some of you may have read, I did this piece for :iconanimationcollege:, the wonderful school where I teach 3D! It's one of a series of four images which are now floating around on billboards and signs advertising our school :)

You can check out the others in the series here, done by my amazing coworkers HunterKi11er, Phrunzoid, thanduraj and Springymajig

Surprised by HunterKi11erHorror by PhrunzoidAnger by Springymajig

And here's the one I worked on with help from HunterKi11er's amazing 2D wizardry on the coral and background!
