Game Industry Advice4students
I was asked by an aspiring 3d artist who was about a year from actually attending college, for some advice about the gaming industry and this is what I had to say to her.  She was specifically thinking about going to Digipen, which is the same college I went to.  But the advice applies to just about any school that offers a program in "video game' 3d art.
Well, there are a few things I'd suggest you do, if you have the goal of being a 3D Artist in the gaming industry.
First off, you need to really decide if you want to aim for the gaming industry or production film 3d.
Most schools that offer degrees in 3D Animation could go either way. The big animation projects that they all have you do are big prerendered, storyboarded 3d animated sequencees - which is obviously much more along the lines of film production. The limitations and techniques used in a planed out, storyboarded 30sec/1-2min animation are entirely different from the limitations and techniques used

Argus C3 Rangefinder Camera

This is an Argus C3 rangefinder camera. A popular American made camera during the 40’s and 50’s, the Argus C3 was inexpensive and built like a brick. It not an uncommon camera for American GI’s to carry in WWII, and can still be found in working in condition in attics and at affordable prices on auction sites today. Although it's tedious to use now, it helped popularize 35mm as a film format and allowed countless families to document their lives.

This model is 16.6k tris with a 4k texture, and includes a partially modeled interior for common functionality animation and basic disassembly.

Textures were authored in PBR spec/gloss and converted to metal/smoothness.

I was hoping to find a nice picture of the Holo-sights form your Sifi rifels, and while that's not here I found some other really cool stuff. You got some cool shit man.

I used your sci-fi music player hologram model in a rather... creative way, as a control system of a gramphone.

okay and?
XGP-Nataku Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmmm...quick question and I hope I'm not bothering you in any way shape or form, but do you do rigging by any chance?
Lt-Commander Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013   Digital Artist
Generally only for personal projects.
XGP-Nataku Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, OK then. well do you know anyone who does rigging for Gmod/SFM that has some free time on their hands?
Lt-Commander Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014   Digital Artist
Free time is a limiting factor. I'd say you'd likely have more luck getting the software and learning the basics to do it yourself then for someone to do a random rigging project for you. That's what I did.
