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.

Thanks :)
I have tried it though, and the installer said I must live in the United States to play the game. I even tried to cheat that program but it didn't work either. However that's not a big deal since the game costs currently only few euros.

Thanks. ^-^

How goes your own mod btw? I take it, it's a machinima/film project? The shaders are looking good. :D

Hah - I ranked up to level 11 today! What a great day - whatever that means. Is it good, am I bad, does leveling mean you get more on ground with things, or is it just "there"?
I'd like to become a level 99 mage with mapping and coding powers. I would overwrite all existing mods and create a mod-Bable, where everyone would help build the tower to heaven and create a game, even god couldn't resist to play!
of course all of that's just ********, but you know how it is: writer's got do write, duck has to duck...

Dein Projekt "MechOverride" klingt wirklich total interesant und die Umsetzung mit dem Rotoscope-Shader find ich echt klasse. Ich hoffe es wird was draus.
