Clearly, its been a long time since I've really been active on DeviantART but I have been progressing steadily, I feel as a 3D artist, and more specifically these days as a Technical Artist so this sites relevance is not lost on me. I thought that since I may need some constructive criticism from the likes of the people I know on here it might be time to explain what I've been up to and what I'm planning. Basically, around August/September last year the Game Developer (Wicked Witch Software) that I was employed by on a long term, full time basis had to make serious cut backs and as I'd gotten my work on the project we had done I was one of t

The birth of a Technical Artist

The birth of a Technical Artist

Once upon a time there was nothing. Or perhaps it wasn't once upon a time, since time didn't even exist as a concept. A mass of energy somehow spawned out of this singular nothing and exploded broadly into all space and time that currently exists. And thus the universe was born. Soon patterns and waves formed this space and time into distinguishable matter. The matter was attracted to its neighbours and clumped together creating more and more waves of different kinds of energy. And thus stars were born. Eventually these waves grew so great they caused these clumps to create new forms of energy. These new forms of energy caused great change

Displacement maps

I recently got hit up with this comment: "So, what practical purpose does real time (*i assume that this is real time) displacement serve? Normal mapping is less hardware/software specific as far as I can tell, no need for directX 11+ support, and it looks nearly as good, if not better. And if normal mapping is too 'old', try some fancy parallax mapping. That said, dx11 tessellation is a cool tech toy."

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
