One user at our forums had warn us that our „Material Library“ can’t be downloaded and by trying to download it an „404 Page not found error“ appears - broken link. This error was caused by changing the directory structure on our server but the download link wasn’t changed to the new address. We are sorry for this kind of trouble. Now the error is fixed and you can download the material library without problems.
After a hard work we are happy to finally announce the date of releasing the next tutorial at the end of this week. The upcoming tutorial we mentioned already few times here and also in our newsletter and it would be about modeling a „Laser Rifle“ using a reference picture from the popular post apocalypse game Fallout. The tutorial would be the longest we did so far and will feature 17 parts and around 20h of training. We really hope that all our users will enjoy it like we did when we was making it. If you did some of our tutorials or have wishes for some we would like to know your opinion and get some feedback to the tutorials.
In few days we are starting a new tutorial category called “Interior”. About the first tutorial we already brought a small sneak-peek days ago “Upcoming tutorials on 3D-Sphere”. The new tutorial category will be focused on interior modeling and rendering. In the first tutorials we will built a model library including different stuff like chairs, lamps and others which you can find in living room, kitchen or other parts of an interior. After building this library we will focus on making an interior from our models and setup the light and materials.
We are working hard on new tutorials and here is a small „sneak peek“ about few of them. If you already saw any of our tutorials give us your feedback. This kind of information is essential for us if we should improve something, if just the video quality or other stuff we would be happy to read your feedback. If you want to leave feedback to our tutorials, join our forum. But back to the “sneak peek”, the first picture in the gallery at the bottom of this article shows the next tutorial which would be published at the end of this week. The tutorial is about modeling a mobile phone, we will not tell which one so far, but we think most of you already know. The tutorial will include also materials and rendering for the final image and as well some Photoshop work.
Probably some of our users noticed that today in the morning was www.3d-sphere .com temporarily unavailable and got 503 Error. We don’t know was caused the problem but after contacting our hosting the problem was solved within few minutes. We apologize for this inconvenient and hope it would not happen in the future.
