Got more work done on the wall light

Doing more 3D modeling today

Twitch livestream

Here is the interior doorway I had made today
Textured and in UE4

Plans and ideas

Due to Gman Studios being in use I am looking into other possible names and also trade marking.
I plant on changing the way I export things from blender as I tend to combine things that should be exported separately.

Did quite a bit to get the UE4 lights the way I want, still needs tweaking but here are some images to show progress.

steam group

Today I set up a steam group as I see it to be the best way to gain feedback and give updates on the game.

Messing with Blenders Render features

I may have accidentally stopped the render as your see in the bottom image and I can't seem to figure out how to resume or if you can even resume.

Working on texturing w/ Substance painter + UE4

Note: I did try working on the textures with in Unity but UE4 handles it per material not object.

Been messing with textures today learned how to do a few things with in substance painter.

Game Engine Debate

I am still wondering if I should use Unreal Engine 4 or Unity for this First person PC game. Then there is Source engine 2 which should be coming out soon and I wonder if that'll have the node based programming like how UE4 does.
I think I'll continue to learn blender, photoshop, and substance painter because I want to wait for Source Engine 2 to see how well it will preform compared to UE4 and Unity as they'll all be free engines.

Tycoon Game update

Today I did a few updates on models
+wall lights //feels like they might be a little big :/
*edited counter //feels like I need to edit the stools still

Then there is this render I made a bit ago, it might be hard to see because it's all one color.

Blender Knowledge Update

So I have been using blender quite a lot lately and am learning a lot every single I use it. There was one thing that took me a very long time to figure out so I posted a steam guide on it. Click Here

I got substance painter

yesturday I had got substance painter and I can't wait to learn the software, I got a little bit of experience after learning UV unwraping in blender but 1 thing I need to figure out is how to unwrap multiple objects in one model or else texturing one thing will texture the other objects.

Learning photoshop and found 3D painting

So today I livestreamed photohsop for a couple hours as I was trying to make a texture for a CS GO weapon for experience and found out you can 3D paint in photoshop also :D

After like 2 hours I found out :C WTF, I just wondered if the brush tool would work.

Making more graphics

I made a gif  that was done through photoshop :) #SelfLearnIsBestLearn
