I love to watch tutorials on other artists workflows and tools. You never know what little kernel of awesomeness you’ll unravel. This rainy weekend I was trying out some of Jama Jurabaev’s tutorials and Steven Cormann’s new tutorial. Both artists are amazing and seeing their process unfold is a delight.
Jama’s tutorial is on gumroad (he has a bunch). But the ones I took an interest in are using Octane renderer and Blender.
To contrast that, Steven Cormann has just released his tutorial, Epic Matte Shot. He is using Redshift as his renderer. He does a great job breaking down his workflow.
If you get a chance take a look at both artists tutorials and their work. You will not be disappointed.
Happy MLK Day everyone.
In the new year, I noticed my Laptop’s hard drive was getting pretty close to full. I looked into getting another hard drive to help the battle, then I worked on another project went to say my files and BAM…I couldn’t save the file I had maxed out my old drive space. So I’ve spent the last couple days organizing my files, moving things around, and such.
Crisis averted for now. I have to spend some time looking into a better scenario than just buying another external hard drive to back up data. I’ve got multiple multiple backup drives now. So I’ll start digging into this now, but if anyone has any good solutions they’ve done I’m all ears.
