OKAY SO A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THIS
Back when I was in school for graphic design and I tutored people, a lot of people complained about not being able to afford software (because it is ridic expensive). Autodesk offers free software (with a 36 month license key), to ANY students. Want to learn how to animate? Go grab Maya and learn! Wanna learn how to model characters or just general objects? Go grab 3DS Max! Or maybe sculpting is your thing? Go grab Mudbox and have fun!
Or grab Sculptris.There’s a fuckton of programs to mess with and learn things, and no need to go waste time on a torrent.
The only downside to the license is it’s not for commercial use.
Technically you don’t have to be a student either and really who’s gonna knowbut it’s a great way to practice and learn something new! You are still allowed to showoff your stuff and throw it in your portfolio, so maybe one day you can get that animating job and not have to waste 3k on one program.
All those icons in that third photo? Those are all free programs/apps you can get. They’re all full versions, and come with tutorials from basic to advanced stuff. For both Windows and Mac too.
So go sign up and, go grab some stuff. There’s really no reason not to.
important reminder that autodesk is awesome and wants you to use their awesome programs so you can get good and buy them for realsies later.
If you’re looking for signed + numbered, limited edition prints, don’t forget that “Eclipse” is still available at The People’s Print Shop. Grab one before they’re gone!
To everyone who has ever bought my prints, thanks for the support!
I saw ads for this movie, and was very confused by them. Then many years later, I saw the actual movie, and it was glorious.
Ladies and Gentlemen, craftsmanship. One of the finest examples of taking pride in what you do, and making absolutely sure no detail is too small.
One of the things that my person and I want to do is have a house filled with objects that are more than what they seem.
This, this would be the piece de résistance.
"Anhinga Anhinga" is apparently the best scientific name they could come up with for the anhinga.
