    • Gene gconnell@casplism.catholi

      Hey Gleb, i Use Blender, Houdini and after effects currently also i am interested in offline graphics, i want to create animated shorts (so im interested in animation, sculpting and lighting also i would love some photography and color tips), i am currently a high school student (16) and i would love to see some tutorials on animation, sculpting, lighting, composition, color and photography fundamentals. Thanks for the great videos keep at it πŸ™‚

      5) Keep producing awesome content πŸ™‚

    • lurixM

      1. I’m using Blender and Houdini at the moment, but I’m going to get a bit more experience in 3DS Max.
      I’m using Gimp and Krita for graphical editing etc..
      2. I myself like offline graphics much more then realtime graphics.
      3. My favourite part of cg is modeling followed by simulations and all kinds of procedural works in which I sadly don’t have much experience yet.
      4. I’m a stundent right now, but I got my A-level exams next year, I’m planning to become a VFX-artist.
      I’m working on two fairly new projects at the moment. The first is a fps in ue4 but it is kind of stuck at the moment.
      I got the 2nd project is a timelapse of time for a drama group at school.
      5. What I could make use of the most are workshops that are not too expensive. For example the Movie Scene Creation workshop from Agenzas Brothers or your and Aidy Burrows latest Space VFX workshop. Maybe not just for one specific software but more a universal workflow with a certain software as an example.

      PS: I’m sorry I can’t post any screenshots of my work, i dont have any on my mobile phone.

    • Captain Joshi

      Hi Gleb!

      I’m not a big fan of lists, so I will just write this down as a nice full text.

      I use many different programs actually depending on what I want to achieve. My main piece of software will always be Blender, but I use GIMP a lot for all post I can’t do in Blender and image editing in general. I have a bit of experience in Terragen and a bit more in Vue since I work with it from time to time.
      When I’m in the need to texture something, Substance Painter is really my #1 tool of choice. If you haven’t already tried it out, I can only recommend you to do so! It’s such an amazing tool. So intuitive and it creates all texture maps you can think of directly for you!
      Lately, I’ve been using Unreal 4 and a beta program called Google Web Designer since I’m working on a small website side project. Not directly related to 3D graphics, but more as a Fan Art project for Life is Strange.
      I’ve been painting with SAI Paint Tool a few times, but I’m not a talented 2D artist, so I will stick to 3D in the future.
      Since I’m cross exporting a lot between Life is Strange and Blender, I use UModel for exporting the assets and mainly a tool called “Everything”. It’s a file search/browsing program that indexes your entire harddrive. It is possible to search for a single file, for example a texture, on your harddrive with literally no time delay whatsoever. Great for managing huge amounts of textures or other files.

      For the second question: I’m interested in both actually! I do my main work in offline graphics with Cycles but I’ve always been interested in the real time PBR techniques out there. Getting deep into Unreal for that doesn’t seem worth to me at this point, but I’m desperately waiting for the Viewport Project on Blender to be finished, since, as far as I’m aware, they are planning to include real time rendering in that too! Eventually boosting the Game Engine to a new level!

      My main interests in computer graphics are actually lighting and compositing. I’m doing the most part of my work on using assets from a game for example and setting up a well composed image and lighting. Or turn a simple sphere into a really cool animation of Mars. I just love Blender’s problem solving workflow!!! When you sit there and you have an image in your mind and you tweak the settings, set up big node trees, blur this, copy that, mask out that, add it there and you finally get that simple image down is so satisfying!! I also love texturing, although I’m not doing it often enough πŸ˜€

      What do I do for a living. I am actually in my last 2 months of school right now and plan to study Game Art in Cologne afterwards, hence I’m finishing my application portfolio right now. I work in a beverage market 4 days a week after school to earn a bit of extra money (Forklifts are very fun to drive!). I cannot earn any money from my art as of now, but it’s not the reason I’m doing it anyway. I’m just in love with art in every sense of the word! I love music, sounds, paintings, renderings, texts, lyrics, everything that can send me off into another world and dream my way back to reality!

      What can you do for me. You’ve already done soooo much!!! I’ve learned so much through your tutorials already and I keep learning every day! I love your style and the energy you are doing your videos with. One can feel how passionate you are into what you are doing and that just makes my day every time, no matter the actual content of the video, which just adds up to that. Thank you for doing this! Keep being yourself!

      PS: In the video you asked what I am working on at the moment. Since my portfolio lacks of Modelling work, I am right now working on a high-poly model of my Jackson Kelly guitar. The backside is finished as of now: http://i.imgur.com/e3NiToB.png
      My other projects are a shortfilm based on a game, although that is on standby until I’m done with my application, and the small website project I’m doing as a side thing. It actually contains 360 degree scrollable pictures I rendered in Blender for example. I’ll make sure to share it when it’s done, which might take a while though πŸ˜€

      Have fun in everything you do!

      – Joschka

      • I feel like I know you for 10 years already. Such elaborate answers, Joschka, I really appreciate this. Do you have a blog? You should!

    • Jiezz

      1 : Blender (for modelling, animation, compositing, vidΓ©o Γ©diting and blocking traditional animation with 3d proxy mesh and Grease Pencil), Gimp, and Krita (I looooove Krita) for the most of my 2D works, I have done a little pencil test of you during the last Blender Conference (https://youtu.be/Ifz2kQFj-5E)

      2 : Realtime graphics offers great liberty for the spectator, but as an artist I prefer offline graphics to be certain of transmit the message I have to share

      3 : 3D is a fantastic way to work on texture and material in a sensitive way, 2D is pure graphical cration. Both are complementary.

      4 : I’m writing a university dissertation about animation’s changes in the fifties, at the same time I currently work on VFX in a web series (but it’s still a secret). This is my last work, an intro for a friend’s chronicle on Twitch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZHyrFvscOg Thank you Gleb, the Space VFX Elements, it was a great help.

      5 : I love your work , because I think you have a different approach to graphical design, so if you want to help us, stay the same, keep the same approach.

    • CVETKO

      Haha even videos like these are amazing if they are from you Gleb! So i and much more people who know you from the start (when you started making those short-awesome tuts) should share some basics with you too i suppose.
      So this is about me:
      1. Blender, Keyshot, Marvelous, Photoshop, learning Zbrush and Max.
      2. Offline, made few realtime projects but, for me that’s not so fan ass offline…
      3. Modeling, and sculpting, but mostly modeling.
      4. Well working as freelancer but at sometimes (like now) there are no jobs soo, i am lucky that i still have 18 and can rely on parents… And also at the moment, KV-1S printscr included. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9a6aa28b43ba0bb59d537026f1547af12018f481f70a30bb718c17dc59b33ce6.jpg
      5. Ad what you can do for us, well for me, just keep making awesome videos as you do now! Or maybe show us some black magic that you can do about sculpting or so. (We know that you allways have few tricks in sleeve).
      PS Hello to little shrimp, hope he is ok and wish him to grow big and be awesome as his dad is!

      4. Retail Sales (which pays the bills) and filmmaker (which doesn’t pay anything πŸ˜‰ )
      5. I would love to learn how to use Blender for facial mocap (like what they do for the Planet of the Apes movies). Got any any ideas on that?

      • Captain Joshi

        The facial mocap is simple in theory but hard to realise. Avatar has an excellent making of where they show a bit of that. Basically a camera attached to a headpiece that points at your face and markers on your face. You can simply track those markers in 2D and use bone constraints to apply those movements to the bones. It will be a bit fiddly because you have to tell the bones to move in 3D space with 2D data so that the face is not just being deformed in 2D, but that’s about the gist of it.

      5. I’m satisfied with the content. Just keep up the great work.

    • Chris B

      1. What software do you use?
      From most to least skill/experience: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Blender – I’d love to learn a few more, but along with work, University and learning Icelandic there aren’t enough hours in the day πŸ˜‰

      2. Are you interested in the realtime graphics or offline graphics?
      Not sure, I’m still kind of fumbling my way around this whole thing.

      3. What area of computer graphics is your major interest?
      Honestly, I’m primarily a branding/logo designer learning some vfx and 3D to get a few more strings to my bow. Some modelling and basic animation I guess.

      4. What do you do for living?

      I’m studying at uni, I’ve done freelancing but primarily branding/logos/product design.

      5. What can we do for you?
      I find videos difficult to keep up with sometimes, although the space vfx ones have been brilliant so far. For little tips and tricks, I’d be interested in written tutorials, obviously for larger projects videos make sense, but for things like, “Here’s a shader setup for this thing” with screenshots and text would be amazing. It would allow me to go back and reference it more easily.

      • Even as an addition to the video, like it has been already pointed out, the snippets like shader setup may be useful. Chris, I will try to include more of these.

      1. Blender, gimp, unreal 4, inkscape (in order of most used) ++
      2. Both.
      3. All of them, my least favourite is UV unwrapping and texture painting.

      5. I mostly watch videos to learn clever tricks or methods I didn’t know about, so it’s hard to tell before hand what will be useful. Someone has a jellyfish blender tutorial on youtube that’s loaded with great tips if you want to check out what I’m talking about. I learn something from most videos, but I can remember a few that where particularly useful, and they usually show off more advanced methods and work flow.

      3: animation, with particular focus on scene transitions.

      4:I’m 15 years old, so… uh, rely on my parents, I guess?

      5:What I most love about Creative Shrimp is your focus on teaching at an individual level. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve benefited from your personal advice and critique when I asked you something in the comments. Most artists seem to be very inaccessible, but you manage to have a personal connection to your audience. What I ask of you is to keep that connection, even as your followers rise. This is what I most gain from, and what I most treasure from you. Keep up the awesomeness!

      • Hey Yitzi, it’s getting harder since the number of subscribers is rising, but I read every comment – via email, blog, youtube channel and so on. And in many cases, I try to reply πŸ™‚ Thanks man!

      Hi Gleb, i want to underline the fact that i’m still looking for my way in the 3d world so first of all i would like to learn a bit of everything, but for now:
      1) Blender, Gimp, Photoshop, Substance Painter (i’m learning Unity but i’d like to learn Unreal)
      2) Both, but for now only made offline Graphics
      3) like all of them, but i’m not good in rigging and sculpting (please make some tuts πŸ˜€ )
      4) i’m a computer science student
      5) Continue with your awesome video and, if you can, please make video about rigging, animation, and real time graphics!

      my works: https://-matt-.artstation.com/

    • Slawek Nezumi

      – Blender, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Paint Storm Studio (brilliant and cheap painting software by Russian developer) and I have recently – after many, many years – replaced Adobe software. Photoshop was replaced by Affinity Photo and slow as hell Illustrator was replaced by superb Affinity Designer
      – I am interested in all sorts of graphics. Bit less in real time, mostly Cycles rendering. But it might change with new Blender viewport
      – Sculpting, modeling. Rendering comes last but still is necessary to present your work.
      – graphic creation of all kind of graphics. From small 2D stuff to 3D visualization. Freelance.
      – You can do some tutorials that can be used in real jobs. All knowledge is good but almost everybody is making tutorials about aged, grungy materials with dust floating in the air, with color grading and noise… Its nothing like real life jobs where clients want clean look, products/places are brand new, rarely client would appreciate any noise and certainly nobody wants dust particles in the air. You guys are magicians when it comes to rendering but it would help if you showed some cool ways of presenting product, lighting interior scene etc. I know its boring but thats where jobs are.

      • That could be an interesting (and pragmatic) take on this stuff indeed. How to present a product / how to render sleek archviz interior for magazine. A whole different perspective.
        p.s. But to be completely fair, many types of the jobs require the grungy look too :))) Namely, games/film/illustration stuff.

    • 1. Autodesk Maya, Blender, Photoshop, After Effects, Adobe Illustrator
      2. Learning Unreal Engine, used to use Unity 3D
      3. Animation, Rigging, Lighting, Texturing

      4. I work for a company called TubeSync, we are selling a product to mange all you social media accounts, but I am sidelining as a Game Developer.
      5. If you could focus your work more to the real time aspect rather than the offline graphics that would be awesome, don’t get me wrong though, your composition skills in blender are absolutely amazing!

      5. I’m loving your space vfx series. Would like to see atmospherics such as storms, blowing dust, hurricanes.

      • Super interesting tutorial request. The atmospheric effects are pretty much a grey zone of computer graphics tutorials. Such a rare thing!

    • Aniket chanda

      1. What software do you use?
      – Blender and krita, i dont seem to use gimp much.

      2. Are you interested in the realtime graphics or offline graphics?
      – i am interested in both, i am learning to use unity and i also love cycles

      3. What area of computer graphics is your major?
      – i like everything that there is to in 3d art.

      4. What do you do for living?
      – i am a high school student of 12th grade and its only been 3 months since i started using blender or any 3d software ever so i am still getting a hang of it.

      5. What can we do for you?

      Offline graphics
      Modeling, lighting, texturing and animation.
      I’m retired.
      An updated tutorial on creating a heat haze effect and yet more tutorials series like the amazing Space VFX thank you so much.

      • Anton, thanks for your answer. I’ll forward your tutorial request to Aidy, because he’s much more pro, when it comes to heat haze effect.

        • Anton Popczynski

          Wow Gleb, thank you so much for your quick reply. I’ve only been using Blender for just over a year and found it to be both amazing and sometimes frustrating but I have never had so much fun as following the Space VFX course. Hope there’s more tutes in the future from you and the other master tutor Aidy.

      4. concept artist at volta
      5. more hacks and cheats to achieve results faster. i dont care about a corect workflow i care about having an image at the end of the day

    • 1: B3D, Affinity Photo, Corel Painter 2017
      2:Processing still images, so I guess the answer is “offline” (rendering, etc)
      3: Creative art image generation (I like to play and make pretty pictures, basically)
      4: retired and having a ball
      5: You can write PDF’s detailing specific solutions, to supplement the high-level, high-speed videos you do. Either that, or slow down and explain more. Perhaps cut back on the caffeine?

      • Haha, nice advice πŸ™‚ Can’t cut back on caffeine, because I will probably collapse from severe decaffeination. But I like your idea about including more detailed explanation in pdf form, or something else. Would the project files help?

        • Yeah, being able to look at the Blend files, etc., would be helpful. To see settings and so on. Thanks!

    • 1. too numerous to list here
      2. It’s 2017, everything should be realtime. Why stuck with offline rendering? Still 1990s mindset?

      3. magic

        • easter_BANDIT

          I would also like to see game asset vidoes.

    • 1. Blender, Gimp, and Natron (learning it). I plan to purchase Vray, ZBrush, and perhaps Maxwell, and download UE4 in the coming months however
      2. Right now I prefer ray-traced offline rendering, however UE4 has some dang impressive results as well…
      3. Lighting, Shading, Modelling, Sculpting, and UV Unwrapping (in that order)
      4. Right now I’m a minor, but I’m making a pretty solid income from Blender, nothing major, but a few hundred a month…
      5. Keep doing what you’re doing fam… You’re helping a lot of people use Blender πŸ˜€

      • Do you like Natron so far? Can it compete with After Effects, in your opinion?

        • Hey Gleb… It seems like a great software, but it’s really memory intensive… I have two Xeon CPUs, 2.6 Ghz and 32 threads… I also have 8 GB of RAM, and a GTX 770 Classified 4 GB. It completely froze up my computer when I tried to import my exr image… Not sure if that’s normal, but not much freezes my computer… Anyhow, I’ll have to get more RAM and try again.
          As far as competing with after effects… No idea… Never had the opportunity to work with ae, as I’m a linux user… From what I see though, it compares more with Nuke.

          Cheers and many coffees to you,

    • Ricc Ballard

      Blender 3D (cycles), gimp, just started learning krita.
      Realtime for short movie clips animations, and offline scenic.
      For living no this is just interesting to me and I can NOT draw or paint to save my life, but this lets me be creative anyway.

      For a living I am a software engineer, been writing code since 1983. (yup old fart)

      Also use the video editing part of blender to create video collages for my family and friends.

      As far as the direction of my hobby well I just bring up blender and start creating. Sometimes its a nature scene sometimes its space scene, I have even done some old time cities and futuristic whatever floats my boat that day.

      This just helps me keep my insanity where I like it.

      Though I have been considering looking into unreal 4.

      Hi, you are one of the greatest for everyperson in the world.
      -I’ve used and tried every software available for the purpose of game development and graphics.
      -both Real time and offline graphics are awesome
      -To elucidate all known sciences we have to know, I suppose the better answer would be, motivation will be energized if we discover the elements from the alpha to omega.
      -I live for game developing and graphics, but that two arts don’t Live for me.
      -Ad I’ve already said you are one of the greatest, internet never lies, statistics is important ad well as content. YOU are one of the most skilled among the whole world.
      Thanks for reading.

      Hi, Gleb!

      Software: Blender, Unity, Gimp, Inkscape, occasionally ngplant, Apophysis and Terragen Classic.

      Rendering: both, but it’s almost amazing what realtime rendering allows to achieve these days. Eagerly waiting for Blender 2.8.

      Area of interest: modelling, materials, lighting, particles.

      Job: journalism, copywriting.

      Q5: just keep going. πŸ˜‰

      1- Blender, photoshop, houdini, 3DS max, world machine, after effect, NukeX, adobe premiere, substance painter.
      2- i’m interested by all thing, but i like cycle ray-traced.
      3- All that, but texturing is very important for quality rendering :P. And simulation to create a realistic environment. And something like particle animation who interest me.
      4- I search the best job in the world, on Blender πŸ˜›
      5- I would like a tutorial who explain “how to create foam in Blender” but without to take the modifier “ocean”. Or create an addon who make the same thing that in Houdini. To create splash , foam , etc.. Realistic fluid with bubble. I think Blender will be the best of the best if we have an addon who can to create that. And then, tutorial to make a complex scene without to crash Blender. It will be fantastic πŸ˜› Thank You Gleb for your good work and to stay cool with us.

      • The foam with bubbles, etc, would be damn tricky πŸ™‚ but the idea is intriguing nevertheless.

      4. Have no income as for today πŸ™
      In development of asset for Unity based on dynamic procedural texturing + model shape deformation in relation to metadata taken from existing texture in real-time.. you know like fast paced mimicry, also can be used to change environments in relation to hero (as reversed option).. but I have more ambitious goal – to mimic all pollinators in the world through augmented reality gaming experience and Blender (my first modeling platform) already helps me with this!
      5. Teach me more cool Blender tricks! You are really talented educator πŸ˜€
      And yeah.. if you are from Belarus, take five from Ukraine! Eventually we (both our countries) can shake off those remains of walking dead soviet regime.

      What’s up “Brimp”?!?! Here we go:
      1. Blender, Maya, PS, GIMP, Houdini, Motion5, AE, FCPX, Fusion8, Krita, UE4
      2. Real-time mostly
      3. Modeling, Sculpting/Retopo, Texturing, Animation, and hopefully Lighting once I go through Gleb’s awesome Realistic Lighting in Blender course! πŸ™‚
      4. Teach Theology, Run an online Bible Institute, Counseling, am a published author, and run a small graphic/logo design company.
      5. Do a complete in-depth course on building node layouts for advanced texturing, starting simple and progressing to those super-large spaghetti layouts. The ones at CGCookie are too fast to follow along with, as awesome and cool as Kent Trammell is.

    • 1. 3ds Max, Blender
      2. Offline: V-RAY, Mental Ray, cycles
      3. Texturing, materials

      Thanks for everything you do Gleb!

    • Cody

      1. Blender, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects for some video editing.
      2. Offline in Cycles mostly,real time might be interesting to know, but not really a focus.
      3. Animation / Rigging / Lighting
      4. Graphic Designer / Web Designer hoping to move into 3D for a career change
      5. I love your quick tips and “hacks”, also the originality of your tutorials. In a way I just want you to keep on doing what you’re doing. Also, I love how your products you sell TEACH you something, rather than just giving you something. That way it’s not a crutch to rely on, and more valuable.

      5-1. I did think of something… Video is something I’ve been wanting to do to showcase my models / scenes to give them a bit more life, learning a bit more how to make that a possibility would be great. The rendering just seems impossible, when a single frame takes me half a day or more.

    • Shadowy Enot

      4. Drive a Bus and run the tutorial youtube channel/website BlenderBrit, yeah I know, weird combo πŸ˜€

      5. Very hard to say, I enjoy learning most aspects of 3D. I guess, if I were to pick my weakest areas that would be a good place to start. Sculpting, rigging and animation.

    • Guido Medici

      1. Blender, Cycles, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Indesign, AE, little bit of Marvelous designer, some 3dmax (import and export stuff for Blender).

      2. Offline only, mainly Cycles, I would like to learn some of major render engine and olso I really love to learn some realtime graphics.

      3. I actually love a little bit of everything about cg, but if I must choose probably i’d say rendering: materials, lighting and Post production most of all, I love to see final images come to life. I really like play with PS and with all different render layers.

      4. I graduated in Industrial design here in Venice, unfortunately it’s virtually impossible become designer here in Italy in this historical period. So I had to invent a job to make a living and I decided to make of a passion a job. Currently I’m a freelancer based in Italy.
      I deal with cg visualisation, for some italian and international company.
      At the moment I’m working on personal project, I’m practicing trying to replicate a photo I’m in the middle of the fun part!!

      5. There would be so many things that I want to ask!!
      Could you suggest some studios that use blender professionally!?
      I really would like to try an experience in a studio.
      Or it would be even better able to assemble a group of professionals who use blender to try to compete with big firms of archiviz on the European scene.
      Sorry I’m delirious ahahahahah…
      Everything aside, you doing so much for the comunity and I’d like to thank for all the effort you put to share your knowledges.

      1.Blender, Gimp, inkscape and jwildfire (I don’t really use this last one often but generate sometimes some random weird looking fractals is always fun)

      2.offline graphics but realtime graphics are interesting too as well.

      3.Texturing, modelling and lighting, but mostly playing around with particle systems

      4. Well I guess I breathe, eat and sleep haha. In fact I’m curently studying.

      5.Keep posting more awesome content! And also please do more modelling tutorials! (Could you also buy me a new computer, a flying cat and a spaceship please? XD)

    • Gabriel Brennan

      1. What software do you use?
      Just blender! I’m still relatively new to 3D modelling.

      2. Are you interested in the realtime graphics or offline graphics?
      A bit of both! More so in offline graphics, but seeing things happen in real time would be cool too!

      3. What area of computer graphics is your major interest?
      A bit of everything! Mostly modelling though.

      4. What do you do for living?
      I have several part time jobs and I’m a full time university student (Secondary Education).

      5. What can we do for you?
      Keep being awesome! I know less that nothing about post-production, so a tutorial on that would be awesome! And maybe a nature/architecture tutorial? I know Blender Guru has done them but it would be interesting to see you take on it πŸ™‚

      • Nature/architecture – I would love to, honestly. and to tell a secret, I’m planning some nature stuff πŸ˜‰

      Haha! I use Lego Digital Designer.
