Det är bara bra med mig. Har inget att klaga på. Hur är det själv? Hade du något särskilt på hjärtat?

100th comment, yeahhhh!

I saw your Flintlock Pistol on the front page and decided to hop by your profile.
And I must admit, your work is insane! (In a good way)

Just had a few questions tho', your profile says you use Blender & Photoshop, did you make your 3D models in Blender as well or a different program?
Also, what are/is your preferred game(s)? 

Keep up the good work!

Wow, frontpage, that's a first and I didn't even notice it.

Thanks a lot for the compliments.

I start out most my models in Blender, detail them with ornaments, wear/tear in ZBrush, bake them in xNormal, paint them in Photoshop and lastly render them in Marmoset Toolbag 2 or UE4 (haven't used that for anything final yet though). I do feel that I need to make an effort to learn a more mainstream package such as Maya or Max as well, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with the pipeline.

I don't play a lot of games anymore but recently I've played quite a bit of The Binding of Isaac and CS:GO. Older favorites that I don't play much anymore include the STALKER games, Dishonored, Dark Souls and Portal. Even if I don't play a lot of recent games I think it's important to stay somewhat knowledgeable about them.

Cheers

That's a lot to take in as a beginning 3D model maker (myself), haha.
Personally I'm most experienced with Cinema 4D, but now that I've seen your work, I decided to dig more into Blender. (Also because it's a piece of software from my country)
You don't happen to be making any tutorials / timelapse videos? It'd look good on both your profile as well as your portfolio, should you have one.
As for Maya & Max, I haven't done anything with Maya and Max (frankly, but truthfully put) is a b*tch to work with.

Also, you're very much welcome!

Yeah, I get that it can be overwhelming, it was for me too when I started out. If I were starting out I'd probably try to stick mostly to one task (eg. polymodelling/sculpting/texturing) until I'd somewhat decent at it and then move on to expand my horizons with the some new tasks. Another important thing is to post most of your projects online for critique as it's a lot easier to grow as an artist with the help of others.

I think it's great that you're giving Blender a chance, but keep in mind that if I were knowledgeable about Max/Maya or Cinema I could've probably made the same quality of model there. It's important to work in a 3D suite that you're comfortable with but it still isn't a replacement for hard work and skill.

I have made a few written tutorials, but to be honest with you they were all shit so I never did upload them anywhere. In the past I've considered making a few timelapses and/or video tutorials, but I've never actually went though with it. If I were to make something is there anything in particular you'd be interested in hearing about?

My experiences with both Max and Maya seem to be pretty similar to yours, but they are the industry standards so I think the smart decision would be to at least learn to work with them somewhat even if you don't end up switching to them.
