3D TALK – Episode 4 – Allan Portilho

3D Talk - Allan Portilho

Welcome to the fourth episode of 3D TALK.

This conversation didn’t turn out as expected. We didn’t really talk about 3D software at all. The main theme of the conversation was finding out how Allan progressed his 3D career from the Amazon (Brazil) through to moving and working in the USA.

It’s a long and slow paced conversation, but well worth a listen. It’s humbling and inspiring to hear about Allan’s journey. Along the way he took a lot of risks, put in a lot of hard work, conquered learning English, lived apart from his wife, knocked on a lot of doors and was rejected time after time, but ultimately he became a success. He had faith in his talent and dedicated himself to improving his portfolio, which kept opening new doors for him.

His story is an inspiration to any struggling 3D artist.

Since this interview Allan has moved to Hollywood and is now creating key art for movies and TV shows at www.artmachine.com

3D TALK – Episode 3 – Brendan McCaffrey

Brendan McCaffrey - 3D Talk

Welcome to the third episode of 3D TALK.

We got in contact with Brendan to chat about his huge new project ‘The Complete Bike Owner’s Manual’ – where he created over 600 illustrations using 3ds Max, V-Ray and HDR Light Studio. We also cover his use of Modo as his favourite modelling tool and using Quixel and Substance for texturing. Plus there is a bonus section where we move onto the business side of being a 3D artist, where Brendan shares a wealth of his own experiences when thinking about how to charge for your work.

Welcome to the second episode of 3D TALK.

Mark Segasby talks with HDR Light Studio user Samuel Axelsson. We discuss his path into 3D, the software he uses, his product visualization work for POC, his retouching for Volvo and his 3 year break from 3D learning to paint. It was an amazingly fun conversation.

3D TALK – Episode 1 – Wojciech Portnicki

3D TALK - EPISODE 1

Welcome to the first episode of 3D TALK – where I talk to 3D artists and learn about their journey into 3D, the tools they use and anything else interesting that crops up.

I had a really enjoyable conversation with Polish 3D artist Wojciech Portnicki. We chatted about his path into 3D, his use of MODO with Octane Render working for Harman in China, and much more. The sound quality is poor, as it was recorded over skype, but stick with it, he has a great story. Not many 3D artists start out as librarians.
