Cerebus 3D Film

For a while I'm working on the Cerebus movie. And like all other movie projects it is full of fun. Here some progress shots from the Palace. You can see the Facebook page of the Cerebus 3D Movie and here's the production blog. Enjoy!

Bir süredir Cerebus 3D film projesinde görev yapmaktayım (görev kelimesi çok eğlencesiz - aslında o eğlenceli bir iş). Ve saray modeli üzerinde çalışmaktayım. Filmin resmi Facebook sayfasını buradan, prodüksiyon blogunu da buradan görebilirsiniz.

Zbrush ile ilk kez Hellboy'u modellemeye yeltendim. Hatalarımın farkındayım ve tekniğimi geliştirmeye devam edeceğim.

Blacklisted Clients

Blacklisted Clients
For the sake of the new-coming artists and designers out there I feel that I should let you know about two shameless clients who let you work and never pay at all. Also if they had chance to use your work without any payment they also never miss it.

1. A rap musician named XV. Contacted me with e-mail address and his real name was Donavan Johnson also known as Vizzy. My greatest fault and stupidity was trusting his word and sending final work without watermark and pixel size at 1000. I thought it will be printed out but it was an online sale album and he never mentioned that. He used the cover on his Planet Squaria album and never paid. Strongly recommend to stay away from that person.

2. Syed Usman. You can find him on dA also under the name hummingdog Using syedsyedusman @ as contact address. I've worked 7/24 for almost 3+ weeks for a job he took from Kingdom Of Dreams. After the hard work he told me that company didn't liked the image and used a crappy 2D version of the same design instead of my work. BEFORE that he was asked for 120dpi version of the image with layers opened to show the client the vertical version of the design. . . Unfortunately I trusted his word and send 120dpi image without watermark... You can figure out the rest.

Here is his linkedin profile:
And here's their company website:

Simply reject any freelance job offering and inquiries from them for your sake.

Don't do the mistakes I did. First, if it's an individual asking you to do a design let him/her know that you are working for companies with contract not for some random person on the internet. And if he/she really wants to hire you ask for an advance payment like %20-30 of the deal. NEVER send any final work. NEVER send anything larger than 800-900 pixels. ALWAYS send with watermark and make sure watermarks covering the entire image.

CG Society's ''High Standards''

As usual when I finalized my recent work Solara, I sent it to the CG Society Forum 3D Showcase Gallery. And received a declined message mentioning about some standards. I was about to delete their e-mail and forget the whole thing but I believe my labor of love have much more valuable than their judgement.

''Your submission has been declined for the following reason(s):* We're very sorry to let you know that this work does not yet meet our standards as a completed piece for the Showcase Gallery. We'd like to encourage you to post your work in the WIP forum to develop it further before submitting it again.

This is my work they declined -

Not fitting your ''standards'' of your 3D ''showcase'' gallery. How about the very simple renders I saw there already? That is hypocrisy or prejudice - or maybe both. They are suggesting me to send my final work to their WIP forum and continue develop it.

And here some samples accepted to the same gallery. They accepted these and these ones needed to be developed also - a lot. But they are on showcase gallery... Still can't believe that these are accepted and my work declined. Let's take a look to CG Society's high standards;

Meeting their ''standards'' - completed showcase gallery artworks:

A bathroom (again) made with basic shapes, simple materials, pointless composition and bad lighting;;=929983

That's my favorite - definitely fits CG Society's ''high standards'' ;;=929940

Another simple figure work, looks like done after following some tutorials. This one is also accepted their Artist Showcase Gallery;;=929807

A realistic plane WITHOUT any atmosphere - lack of any artistic point of view;;=930902

Extruded cubes rendered realistically with Mental Ray - I think those ''standards'' require using certain software :);=930843

A very ''creative'' character, actually recreation of some other artist's design with GI render you can see anywhere;;=930607

Angelina Jolie (again) with a made-in-Poser looking render;;=929661

I contacted them because of this. Sent e-mail asked why they declined my work while most simple ones are already accepted - and NO response so far. Actually thanks for letting me understand CG Society's ''high standards'' and I understand why some 3D enthusiasts NOT posting to their forum and definitely I'll do the same and also will stay away from their events. Got a good life lesson from this :)

I know I'll be crucified to saying all these. But no matter how fast those daggers come :) ... I have respect to my self and putting A LOT effort to my work and not deserving that kind of false step.

Mödöröbö Devam

Minimödöröbö'ye devam ediyorum. Komposizyonun sağlığı açısından robotun jet pack takması gerektiğine karar verdim, böylece peşinde olduğu melek hatuna daha kolay ulaşabilecek. Ama nedense böyle hayvani bir jet pack modelledim, umarım uçarken bir yerini kırmaz.

Mödöröbö Yapım Aşaması

Yeni robotumun yapımı sürmekte. Sanırım komposizyok gereği Jetpack'e de ihtiyacı olacak. Yazılım: Modo 401 x64
