Usage Of 3D Models

In 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. It can be displayed as a two-dimensional image through a process called 3D rendering or used in a computer simulation of physical phenomena. The model can also be physically created using 3D printing devices.

Today, 3D models are used in a wide variety of fields. The medical industry uses detailed models of organs. The movie industry uses them as characters and objects for animated and real-life motion pictures. The video game industry uses them as assets for computer and video games. The science sector uses them as highly detailed models of chemical compounds.[3] The architecture industry uses them to demonstrate proposed buildings and landscapes through Software Architectural Models. The engineering community uses them as designs of new devices, vehicles and structures as well as a host of other uses. In recent decades the earth science community has started to construct 3D geological models as a standard practice. 3D models can also be the basis for physical devices that are built with 3D printers or CNC machines.

Here are six industries using 3D models frequently:

1. Entertainment
2. Gaming
3. Architecture
4. Publishing
5. Advertising and Marketing
6. Geology and Science

Digital Tutors Clear Things Up About Being Jack Of All Trades

My blog entry titled Digital Tutors Talks About Being Jack Of All Trades got some twitter response from the famous training center. And then today by the e-mail I get notification about their new article with the exact same statement I've used for the VFX slavery. Here you can read their new article clearly as a response to my previous blog entry.

There are many valid points of course because they have an insight about the industry however this new article of Digital Tutors even more discouraging for new coming artists. Here's a quote from their new article: 
Studios don’t want decent artists. They want amazing artists.
Trying to be perfect instead of being %100 yourself is a straight path to depression. Especially if you are a creative person and your art means something to you. Julia Cameron's top selling book The Artist's Way filled with great examples about how strong and vulnerable that creative people can be. That famous expression you can find in almost every CGI article "...not for the fainthearted..." is another way of saying that you have to work till death in almost slavery conditions.

What I'm trying to say and what advocates of being-jack-of-all-trades-to-be-successful don't understand is; with this mentality working environments will get worse and worse. And I am not the only one who states that. Here's a quote from an article published in LA Times written by Richard Verrier.
But the artists who create the effects, crouched over computers using software to create digital images, complain they're often employed in electronic sweatshops, work inhuman schedules and without health insurance or pensions.
Here is another article about vicious work environment which leads the artists to loose their health - which is the greatest treasure we have. And the following example is a bitter one...

The matte painter, who asked not to be identified for fear of damaging his career, said he nearly died when he fell asleep at the wheel after working 75 consecutive days, up to 17 hours a day, doing visual effects work on National Treasure: Book of Secrets. The money was good – $1,000 a day – but the long hours were taking a toll. Three months after his car accident, he began experiencing chest pains and was rushed to the hospital. He said emergency room nurses initially didn’t believe he was having a heart attack because he was only 37. As a freelancer, he didn’t qualify for the company insurance plan to cover his $100,000 in medical bills. His employer, the now-defunct Asylum Visual Effects, refused to hire him back.
Again the article published in LA Times filled with great examples about the vicious work environment. 
They called it the zombie walk. After midnight, when the coffee and Red Bull had worn off, Sari Gennis and her co-workers would take a brisk stroll to make it through their graveyard shift. For four months straight, often seven days a week, a team of visual effects artists worked 12-hour shifts to complete the 3-D conversion of movie blockbuster "Titanic." Gennis said the long hours aggravated a severe arthritis condition. She'd already had both knees replaced, and needed a third surgery, but couldn't afford to take time off for the operation. "If I continue these kind of hours, it could kill me," the visual effects veteran said.
I'm not against Digital Tutors or something. Just like the other artists on the industry I'm desiring the conditions change in a better way. I'm hoping the training centers like Digital Tutors also start caring about the health and quality of the lives and work environments of the artists - as they care about producing and selling fine training material.

Deep Impression

My recent personal work based on my experiments with Procedural Terrain, Material mixing and Terrain Fractal node of Vue. When I finished working on the terrain it became a large scale landscape with some nice views on different points. I simply placed a 24mm camera where I like most and started working on the atmosphere to emphasize the cold. Monumental ice crystals were a last minute idea. I hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

Old Alley 3D Model - Turbosquid & Fallingpixel

Old Alley - Available HERE on Turbosquid and HERE on Faillingpixel.

An alley or alleyway is a narrow lane found in urban areas, often for pedestrians only, which usually runs between or behind buildings. In older cities and towns in Europe, alleys are often what is left of a medieval street network, or a right of way or ancient footpath in an urban setting. In older urban development, alleys were built to allow for deliveries such as coal to the rear of houses. Alleys may be paved, or simply dirt tracks. A blind alley has no outlet at one end and is thus a cul-de-sac.

Digital Tutors Talks About Beign Jack Of All Trades

Digital Tutors published this article about how an artist should be a jack-of-all-trades. In Turkey there is no such thing as VFX - there are couple people using 3ds Max. But there's always a market for WEB programming; you can find thousands of ads looking for a one person to do graphic design for print, web design and all kinds of PHP etc. programming while 3ds Max and Vray knowledge is a "must" in case that cheap employers need some 3D work besides everything that 1 person suppose to do.

Here in Turkey we always make fun of that concept of hiring 1 person to do everything from design to 3d, to make some tea and cleaning if necessary - and now I'm seeing something similar on the blog of a training center. How sad is that...

Too bad that slavery mentality taking over the world combined with the low-budget mentality. One person to do the work of a team... And of course that might work for organizations who selling training for living. I think that is also the purpose of this unfortunate article.

Unheard Poetry

Today was Sunday and I thought it would be a good idea to go out and shoot some photography. I took the bus that will take me to where I want to shoot sunset. There was a charming, petite, brunette girl on the bus. I gazed a lot to her beautiful eyes, she looked back at me too. After a while I’ve reached the stop and had to get off from the bus. Took a last long look to her on the though the bus window then went to the shoreline and shoot this photo.

Please consider purchasing a print if you like and enjoy my work - thank you.

.: Wooden Table With Seats :.

Available On Turbosquid & FallingPixel

A table is a form of furniture with a flat horizontal upper surface used to support objects of interest, for storage, show, and/or manipulation. The surface must be held stable; for reasons of simplicity, this is usually done by support from below by either a column, a 'base', or at least three columnar 'stands'. In special situations, table surfaces may be supported from a nearby wall, or suspended from above.
