  1. 3ds max beginner

    how could i make this question less random? lol i know it's much more complicated then just saying 'modelling' i just dont know which direction i should take considering theres so many options and specialties. That being said, do you have any suggestions as to where i should start?
  2. 3ds max beginner

    so i've been pondering where i should go in the whole game art aspect of video game design, and i've decided to try to learn 3ds max, and hopefully become a modeller. What do you think I should do, watch as many random tutorials that i can or should i look up specifically modelling tutorials? where should i start? Thanks for any help
  3. photoshop brush problem

    so the only possiblity is that i've zoomed in and that there has been no changes to the tool? i was (and am) aware of the zooming and all that, it just seems like it doesnt get as small as it used to
  4. photoshop brush problem

    When im using the pencil tool, I need it to be smaller, but it says its at 1 pixel, but it seems to be at around . I use the scroller to change the size but when its at 1 px, its still too big. I also use the brackets [ and ] For example I have a sketch, and i need to refine the lines, so i try to use the pencil tool to fix something, yet the brush is too big so I cant. Did i change the brush properties somehow? or am I messing around wiht way too much detail? Also, say I have a black background, and I use the Brush tool and paint white, insted of painting white, it lightens the black to a light grayish Anyone know what is going on?

Though, considering everyone starts out with 1000, and you have 998, i'd say your rating is fine. Either way, don't worry about your rating. It is simply a number, worry instead what it represents. good point i wasnt trying to complain (at first anyway- guess it may have turned into that) I was just telling medevil my scenario no feedback jarrod!? -stink eye- thanks Oluseyi, I am currently trying to just get the hang of the basics, like drawing and editing, all the other fancy stuff (lighting, perspective ect) will come with time, and reading many tutorials! thanks to both

    how'd you get a rating of 16? :-0 anyway, i think the spoon might be better off being silver, i may be a little slow, but im assuming that in the last picture, the girl is tasting the disgusting slop, it looks more as if she's nervous instead of soon to be sick on number 8, the guy says ''im stewing the yams'' wouldnt it be stirring? if its a stew, isnt he still sturring it? idk i tried :-) hey, I got a wacom tablet and photoshop yesterday, and i was hoping you could give me some feedback on my first attempts at 'art' --------- hand drawing http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/RABdrawings/boggy.jpg PS work http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/RABdrawings/BOGGYPS.jpg - hand drawing http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/RABdrawings/jack.jpg PS http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/RABdrawings/jack_PSversion.jpg - http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/RABdrawings/meatcleaverPS.jpg thanks for your time, i hope my suggestions made sense as well as helped.
  8. photoshop help

    i posted this i need to find ones or whatever that will teach me how to color in things that i draw with my new intuos3 tablet i also need to make stuff go from..(look @ the quality of the lines) http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g90/blackvans1234/luigi1wsignature.jpg to http://tn3-1.deviantart.com/300W/fs7.deviantart.com/i/2005/220/b/e/SUPER_MARIO_BROS_MARIO_A_LUIGI_by_FlintofMother3.jpg is that possible? i think id have to use layers in photoshop maybe? too bad idk how to do that lol anyway, i need tutorials of some sort! i did search, but i can never find anything that will help me ------------- i want to know if maybe it'd be better to just get an easier painting application (a free one with a decent reputation) because trying to use the tablet effectively and learning photoshop may be too much to learn @ once also, i havent really explored the other programs that came with it - they both say thay're good for editing pictures because of modifiers or something like that, and i dont think that's what i need so what you think (ps- i dont think i broke any rules 0:) )

  10. Game Art....

    Quote:Original post by LockePick A concept artist, character artist, technical artist, effects artist, environmental artist, and a-whole-bunch-of-other-types-of-artist are not going to have the same day-to-day routine. An art director has a completely different job from all of them. aha! thats what i was trying to say i know a concept artist draws up the concepts that the team is shooting for, but thats about all i know (out of that list you made) if i had more insight i could decide which seems best for me if you could, just give me a link to a good sight with descriptions of those jobs, i dont want to make you type out all the descriptions. so i want to know what kind of artists there are on a game design team basically i think i could just goodle their job descrips i think i've made things easier to understand

  15. artist in need of advice

    hey thanks, (i know this is a opinion question) but do you think that i should try to learn photoshop cs3 (i have it), or keep at the drawing? also, what exactly do you do with photoshop after you have penciled out a concept, like color it in and give it textures? thanks for all the help
