Combat Knife
Hi guys, 
my weekly model that I've been working on is a 3D combat knife. It will have both high and low poly versions, and this is currently how it looks. It's not finished because I've been really busy. But when I've done, it will have a proper texture (it only has normal maps at the moment and a basic shader). 
Loading...
As a grizzled old gamer, I used to love the survival horror genre. I played what is considered by many to be the progenitor of those games - the original Alone in the Dark - and loved series such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Although they spawned some decent (and not-so-decent) contenders to their grimy, blood-stained crown, the genre became less and less... itself... as time went by.

Take Resident Evil, for example. I'm not saying I don't enjoy later iterations of the series (RE4 is still one of my favourites) but it replaced its horror with guns-blazing action. I haven't played the most recent Silent Hill game, SH Downpour, but I'm led to believe it was a sub-par entry to the series. 

But in recent years, there's been something of a resurgence for survival horror. Whether you like them or not, there's no denying that games like The Evil Within and its sequel as well as the most recent Resident Evil, RE Biohazard, are returning to the genre's roots. Of course, there's always been something of a cult following (pun intended) with the indie scene, but it's nice to see the return of a beloved favourite game type returning to the Triple A market. 

So what caused its decline in the first place? Video games have unrivalled potential when it comes to sowing seeds of horror because of their interactive nature. Was it down to a change in what gamers want, and newer generations are more action-oriented? Was it because the horrors that once fascinated us have all been seen before in previous games, and no longer scared us? Or was it just that developers didn't want to take a risk on a genre that was never as much of a money-magnet as action games (at least here in the west?) 

I think perhaps it's all of these things. But like the revenants of their subject matter, I believe they are rising again. 
Started my new 3D tutorial in between work, and so far it's looking good! Hopefully I'll have my first fully usable 3D asset by the end of it! :dummy:
Well, it looks like I won't be able to get a higher poly model uploaded for the weekend. Sorry, guys. Alongside my full-time job, I've also had a stressful time house-hunting. I tried a couple of 3D modelling tuts, but they were... not great, which I only found out halfway through each one. I have found a good one, though I had to watch it all the way through to be sure. I'll start work on it either tomorrow or later on today! 
Ugh, the higher poly tutorial I was working on is a bust. Nevertheless, I've started a different one, and I'm working hard to have something with a bit more detail to show you guys for the weekend!

Beings as I seem to necessitate some instruction before use, I present to you:

TRUEFORM FOR DUMMIES!

This is handy guide will feature all you need to know about the etiquette in dealing with the non-complexity that is me. I may add to this in the future as needed and it will be handily posted up on my profile as a 'pocket guide' if you will. Now without further ado, let's begin.
------------------------------------------------------
DO UNTO OTHERS
If we watch each other, please don't ask or expect me to comment on your work if you're not willing to do the same for me. Support works both ways, and if you're not willing to take the time to comment on my work, why I should do so for you?

GIFTS FROM ME ARE NOT AN OBLIGATION
I don't make gifts often because I don't have a lot of time and my personal work takes priority. When I do make them, I don't want to feel pressured or rushed into it so please don't hassle me about it; a gift isn't a commission, it's done on my own time and out of kindness. Most people are fine with that and are very patient, so thank you to everyone who is. For those of you who aren't patient, I will either stop making the gift altogether or drop it to the end of my VERY long to-do list, especially after I took the time to write the journal explaining WHY I sometimes have trouble submitting art.

DON'T MISTAKE ME FOR A DOORMAT
I am a very patient person and I try to be as easy-going and kind as I can be; as such, some people see these traits and mark them down as docility. That is a mistake. Treat me how you want to be treated yourself and if you act offensively or rudely, you will be treated the same way.

READ MY JOURNALS
If they're about my personal life, I will always put up a quick version for casual watchers who are only interested in my artwork and a longer version for those interested in me as a person. I only write journals when I have something to say, so if it's been posted, it's been posted for a reason.

Thank you all for listening. I am bluntly honest, so if there's an issue you're concerned with, feel free to contact me directly. The issues mentioned here

ARE NOT AIMED AT ANY ONE PERSON.

They are issues that have been brought up frequently by several people and that is why I have made the journal, otherwise I would have just told you personally rather than making it public.

If you've been affected by any of the topics touched upon in this 'For Dummies' guide, please contact me on the number below.
