CGTrader Neil Blevins Interview

The website CGTrader was nice enough to do an interview with me a few weeks ago talking about art, industry trends, etc. Really impressed with how professional these guys were, for those who don't know, CGTrader is a market place for 3d models and other things 3d artists need. Had a fun time chatting with them. Read it here:

6 Week Class Finished at Sadie Valeri Atelier

Just finished teaching my 6 week class at the Sadie Valeri Atelier in San Francisco. Did a crash course in my workflow for digital concepting from original thumbnails to simple 3d, photomanip and final hand painting. Thanks so much to everyone who attended and all your hard work on the assignments. For those of you who were on the wait list, it's very likely I'll do the class again in the future, so watch this space for news if you're in the bay area and want to attend. And in the meantime, check out Sadie's school, lots of great traditional classes to explore:

SoulburnScripts Updated Sept 26th 2018

Updated 10 older Maxscripts:

cameraFromPerspView: Added ability to place the newly created camera on a new layer.

cameraLensPackager: Fixed an issue where button tooltips wouldn't update properly.
groupWithPoint: Added ability to place the point at the lowest point instead of centered. This can be helpful when the object is sitting on the floor and you want to have the pivot point on the floor as well.
imagePlaneMaker: Layer is places the templates is now called "_imagePlaneMaker" so it appears at the top of the layer stack.
objectReplacer: Now you can keep your user properties as well when copying.
snapShoter: Newly create objects remain on the layer their original started on.
soulburnAssetLoader: Changed the name of the Environment layer to "_EnvSAL" so it always shows up at the top of the Alphabetical Layer list.
splinePainter:
Fixed a bug that would crash the script if you tried loading some presets.
texmapPreview:
Fixed some code so the script now works with vray next.
twoDPlanView:
Cameras are now placed in a "_Cams" layer.
