    Working in America

    pain in the ass. 0-1 visa is the best option if you can swing it. Need like publications in magazines, or something official looking.sounding and a bunch of other stuff. Otherwise you are most likely looking at getting an H-1, which you need a full time job sponsor for, and there is a limit per year of h1's so its a bit of a luck thing. If by chance you are australian, you have an E-3 visa, which is like the h-1, but there is a bunch more of them. In all these visa's you need to have a degree, or like 10 years of demonstratable work experience.

    A Student's Quick Mographs

    these look great! love the perspective shift of the deer! keep up the good work!
  4. Interesting topic on brograph slack, here is summary: -Real question, can you model a commercial product and sell it on turbo squid? Like that feels illegal. Or would you just have to make it similar but not exact? #notalawyer -well things like a bmw car or nike shoe comes with a disclaimer "editorial use only" which basically covers the turbosquid uploader if you get pwned by the company commercial products depend on the company, some are fine with it, some are not. john deer for example are notoriously litigious, like they go after everyone who makes a green tractor with yellow wheels. and i mean EVERYONE! like they have people googling the word "tractor" all day i think its leaning on stock photography laws. for example... you could have a photo of a celebrity smashing an apple product because it was a news event being reported. the paparazzi who got it gets paid by the publisher. But... Microsoft couldn't also license the photo, slap some copy on it, and then turn it into an ad its not about where it comes from. Its how its used by saying "for editorial use" the onus is put on the person paying for it ...even if the creater makes mint But seriously, check out other 3d model market places, like cgtrader, flipped normals and stuff. Turbosquid, takes more than half the profits from the authors.. its a bit of a racket.. also google authors name, sometimes they sell the same thing through their personal website for cheaper.

    Little Mograph I recently created, CC welcome:)

    looks great! followed you on insta :)) not sure what to critique, what was the goal of the piece? Did it have a message to deliver? The render looks nice, materials are great, lighting is great, animation is smooth. :)))

    Opinions on Schooling

    dont do it. everything moves waay too fast for those courses to keep up. if you have the luxury, you should take classics, like painting, drawings, sculpting, caligraphy, design. Something that doesn't age. For everything else you will learn faster and better online and by getting stuff done. school of motion is a good place. there are many other online schools that are good for various stuff too. They hire actual industry professionals. which most universities don't ( can't afford them).

    Switch from mac to pc

    buy stuff that says silent on it Mine makes like zero noise. Wasn't totally intentional, but pretty surprised. main culprits for noise are cheap power supplies and cpu fans. so get bigger power supply than you will need. Then fans won't spin up for longer. most gpu brands have silent versions. Fans only spin up under high stress. also get a cpu cooler which has a large heat sink and google which are the most silent fans. I think noctua make the best from what i recollect. There are also cases with sound proof padding that should help too. standard plug: http://ace5studios.com/hardware <-quick run down of what each peace of the computer does. A bit our of date, but only thing that has changed is AMD cpu's seem to be pretty good value. But personally waiting for next gen.

    Creative Plateauing

    Yeah, its pretty easy to get pigeon holed. Especially when you are good at something. Because it becomes an easy way to make money. Since you already have the necessary skills. It's why its important to pick personal projects and really push yourself in new directions. And be your own art director. Make revisions, act a shitty client Sometimes you need feedback from others. This used to be a great forum for that. Maybe with the reviving of it, it can be again. Also a good idea to branch out and learn about something unrelated. I love watching crash course videos on youtube. anatomy, biology, chemistry, history. They have plenty of useful stuff to get your brain churning. In the last couple of years i seem to have drifted towards a more technical role, rigging, etc and now i want to go back a bit towards design and aesthetic development. So im trying to get personal projects finished with a strong focus on design. Shapes, form, composition etc.
