    WOW. I checked out your website and you've got some amazing work! How much would you charge for say... and album cover?

    Awesome work!! I tried teaching myself 3DSMax when I was in high school - I got fairly decent at it, but then I started university and that went out the window. Though I'm curious about the darker shadow being on the left of your right-hand art piece in your room.

    So, what exactly is your position/job since theres a few different mediums here. Im in art school right now studying game design & art, hoping to specialize in character modelling despite hearing people say it's one of the hardest things to do.

    It depends, on something simple like an album cover I charge probably $200-$400. Depending on the complexity that is. Other major projects for companies I charge $25 by the hour.

    The bed room piece? I had two windows on each side of the room. Both windows had mental ray sky portals. Light could have been omitting from the other window where the sun wasn't shinning through from the area light or something.

    It can be scary at first, but once you master edge loops, figure out human proportion and anatomy it's pretty easy. Especially when you sculpt with Zbrush!
    Half the time when I work in 3D I'm in a subconscious state. :lol:

    Here in my town I do work for casinos.

    I have a feeling anatomy/symmetry will be biggest kicker, but we've started doing figure drawings in my observational class as well as taking an anatomy & drawing next semester. After that I should get to start working with the computers and learning Maya and such. I dont know how much we'll do with Zbrush or any of those other programs.

    Don't worry I went through the same types of classes before learning such programs. I highly recommend you checking the gnomon websites out... or if your school's library offers them to you.

    The Gnomon Workshop - Professional Training for Artists

    I can't say enough good things about it. I learned more from those videos then all my teachers sadly.. lol. I learned Zbrush from it as well. You should too, it's become the industry standard now!

    I know Maya (not the biggest pro at it) but if you're stuck in something or need a critique PM me! :yesway:

    Will do man, thanks.

    It's also good to know the Gnomon workshops are actually useful since my school (Ai) does offer them, so I'll look into them in the future instead of brushing em off as some self-learning tutorial

    Well that makes tons of sense - I never would have thought of it had you not mentioned it.

    haha if that's the case I guess it's a poor design on my part. Lesson learned. :D

    Not something I'd typically make, but I thought I'd have some practice with Illustrator.

    I really like the "60 Ton Angel" Train picture. Porcupine Tree-inspired title? :p
