You forgot to add, when all else fails, go back to the beginning. I realize that I SUCK at sculpting, but that 3D is a different option. I have really cool character and costume ideas, but also know my limitations at reproduction. I still go back periodically and actually DRAW a character. I just can’t seem to recapture the face again.

Szark - how yuh doin’? I realise that this ‘missive’ was written some time ago but I’ve just come across it. I find it a great , ‘tell it like it is’ for someone like me who is just starting out into CG. I am a retired oldie with some time on his hands and have always enjoyed digital art, even before it was digitised, back when it was called Fantasy Art. I was always fascinated by the art work of Roger Dean who did many album covers in the 60s and 70s. Anyhow, thanks for a very good article. My best wishes.

good point. Yeah I often go back and watch/read tutorials again as a refresher. It is amazing how much I forget. smile
