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.

So ein arroganter Bastard bin ich nicht, dass ich Menschen nur dann gut in Erinnerung halte, wenn sie etwas für mich getan haben. ;)

Wenn du dich erstmal in nem Thread breit machst hält auch die Vernunft Einzug, aktuell bin ich im Zuge des Military Adviser-Threads mal wieder an deine "Helfer-Gabe" erinnert.

Danke! Ist schön virtuell umarmt zu werden. Ich übertreib's manchmal aber und Vernunft kann auch etwas entsetzlich langweiliges sein.
Moddb ist einfach sowas wie Heimat für mich und ich möchte, dass es den Leuten hier gut geht und dazu gehört, dass sie mit ihren Projekten Erfolg haben.
Ich versuche lediglich immer das herauszuholen, was sowieso schon im Projekt oder in der Person steckt. Manchmal übersieht man dabei, dass man selber auch Probleme hat, aber im Großen und Ganzen bin ich heute viel aufgeschlossener und daran interessiert Andere Leute und ihre Ideen zu verstehen; früher wollte ich immer nur, dass meine Geschichte produziert wird, der Rest was mir egal.
Moddb is also, eher als Heimat, sowas wie die wahre Kirche für mich ;)

Yo, danke!

Hab' ich selber noch nicht dran gedacht, ich tue nur was ich für richtig halte. Was hab' ich denn für dich getan? Erinner' mich an gar nichts...

Hi Sink, die sollten dir endlich mal das "Helper"-Tag im Forum verpassen. Wer hätte das mehr verdient als du?

I'm great, am working on glider concepts (troop transport) at the moment and it's a blast. I'm looking forward to post some of our new work in a month or so, as it's really beginning to look promising.

Yeah, I am registered at SMCars as well. It was one of the first sources I found for car blueprints. It's crazy the amount of detail some people cram into those vehicles. I'm debating on whether to keep mine lower poly, or use a mesh smooth, and really refine the details.
