If you're not interested in completely moving house, I'm hearing some pretty good things about this external gpu. I do everything on a macbook, so it's kind of enticing. And in that case, this could follow you through upgrades.

I'm not reading it. Why would I be reading it? Me read it? Nope.

Not that anyone is indicating that it's coming, but I'm waiting for apple to evolve the half-measure of the macbook "touch bar" (idiotic) to a full touch screen. There's a rapidly diminishing number of reasons to stay, otherwise. I can't imagine it's too far down the road, though. It's basically a clamshell iPad Pro with a keyboard. Otherwise known as a surface book. ;)

Unrelated side note, I'm glad there are still a few die hards out there that still come to mograph.net every now & then. I really love this place.


All 3 of us.

We love you too.

Ok, so you're already working as a generalist, essentially. And this is sort of the digital illustration output of your learning process with C4D. I guess the question was really "Is there a specific goal you're working toward, like doing visual effects, or motion graphics, or archviz, etc.?"


Doing this stuff for learning purposes and posting it is fine, but it's a little hard to critique. I mean, I could tell you I do or don't like your color choices, or I do or don't like your tendency toward centered compositions or textured overlays and heavy compositing, but it's all really subjective. I can objectively say things about whether a certain image is achieving photorealism (although I get the feeling that's not exactly what you're really going for). It's all either guessing what your goals are, or making really subjective statements, and as a random dude on the internet, I don't know if you really want either of those from me. :D

Hey Brandon!

The first question really is: what do you want to do with these skills? Are you aiming for photorealistic vfx? Or concept design? Is this for illustration purposes, or... y'know, what's your main goal here? Right now you're spreading it pretty thin as a "3D Designer - - Motion Designer / VFX artist - - Video Editor - Cinema 4D + Octane + Jesus Personal" and have a collection of "daily render"-style instagram shots. They're nice, but that self-description is spread pretty thin, so what are you working toward? Once you can lay that out, we can look at how you're meeting that goal.
