Eat 3D Pillar Review
Eat 3D's Old Damaged Pillar video is the new standard for Next-Gen Art training. I highly recommend it for professionals and those that are new to high rez modeling and sculpting for Unreal. I guarantee that even the most veteran artists in the game industry will pick up a few things to increase workflow and overall quality of their models.
What separates this video from the rest is the detail that is presented during the course of the asset creation. It is always clear where the lesson is going and what the instructor is doing to achieve the results. I was never lost when viewing the tutorials, wondering how something had been done. Each part of the process is clearly laid out and the smallest of steps are always mentioned. There is no magic guesswork or fast forwarding here, it is the exact process of what it takes to make quality art.
I've been through production on 2 next-gen titles using Unreal Engine 3, and this video is the perfect account of the techniques, tricks and tools that every artist needs to be successful in the Unreal 3 pipeline. I am going to make every artist on my team watch this video at least twice.
