Last year I really got into 3D art. One year later, and I feel as though I’ve come a long way. It’s like all the skills I’m learning in the indie publishing world, I feel like I take a colossal leap forward, and then slide back down the learning curve to start all over again. It’s pretty much the same when learning a language as an adult. I still have many plateaus with Danish, just when I feel like I’m getting the hang of yet another point of grammar, or pronunciation, I end up on a plateau with no real development.
I think it’s the brain digesting.
That’s what I think.
And it’s the same with my attempts at 3D art. Luui 2.0 (adult Luui from the Christmas stories) is the exact same model (albeit with different hair and wardrobe) I used for Luui 1.0, but with better lighting, and posing, a little bit of asymmetrical adjustments, and there’s that giant leap. It’s the lighting, mostly. Amazing what you can achieve with three spotlights!
Previously, I might have been tempted to go back and change the model on the old cover. But not this time. I like seeing the progression and look forward to working with Luui 3.0 sometime in the future.
Not right now though.
I really like the new Luui.
