I've been going around as a writer, but started getting drawn into Concept Art and 3D modeling. I'm currently finishing my studies as a 3D artist and will then be let loose on the world. Beware!

I am having a great time learning Unreal Engine 4 and I really admire EPIC's bold move to challenge Unity and Cryengine likewise by offering better tools and resources at a reasonable price. Currently I spend more time on understanding blueprints than on actual modeling, but I'm still making models and shaders all the time. So far, I am really convinced by U4, and I don't think I'm gonna change my opinion. This is the best game engine ever created!

It all seems to add up now. I learned 3D with Softimage (which uses the same shader node system as Unreal Engine), then I taught myself Maya, which has the same controls as U4, as far as movement and snapping is concerned.
Learning UDK and Unreal Engine 3 gave me a great foundation for understanding Unreal Engine 4. EPIC learned from its mistakes with UDK and really improved everything. So it's more of a joy working with Unreal Engine 4 than UDK ever was. However, everything I learned about complex shaders is still valid. It just got easier to preview and use them.

So what's next? I decided to expand my search for work and look outside Germany. Uk or Canada would be nice! I just want to update my portfolio to Unreal Engine's 4 higher standards to really have something to show! I'm working on that. I am proud to say that I am ready for professional game development and it was a crazy journey that led me here.

Woot - I'm a level 23 centurion. That qualifies me as a can-opener and I can also standby and watch people cross the road! Here I come, level 24!

Are you a 2-D artist. I was looking through some of your images and was wondering who drew the screens. If it was you, then I think that you've got some serious skill and would like to recruit you for a mod. If it was anybody else then could you possibly link them to me.

Having friends on Moddb (or anywhere) just means that you are actually doing something, as opposed to just criticizing everyone else.

Pfewwwww, that was cool! I went to the Animation Awards and even had a little private chat with Michael Thurmeier. I see perfectly what we need to do now and we have been on the right way, all along. The people at the workshop were amazed what we pulled off without any budget and with our team of renegade modellers :).
I feel really great now, because two years of work weren't wasted. In fact most pro-companies did far less in the same time! So, if you want to check out our new website (still very WIP) with some images from production,please go to www.gaiamedia.de and check out concept art on the left. We will also try uploading some animations soon and show you some more of what has been accomplished. Woooohoooo!

I'm alright and try to answer everyone at their own profile. We are going to a workshop with Mech Override and hope to stir some publicity for our project. It's taking place already this weekend and I'm busy getting everything we need collected :)
Luckily I found the most amazing ZBrush Artist some time ago and he keeps pumping out heads for our characters. This is starting to shape out really good and I would make a media update, but I'm not sure, if I shouldn't wait until we got some more bodies (damn bodies!) done.
