Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!

Remember that one scene in Spiderman when Peter Parker tears out page after page of his notebook while designing the perfect superhero costume? The hands that drew the lines of the Spidey we know and love actually belong to Phil Jimenez, New York School of Visual Arts alumni, professor and prestigious comic artist. Adding to SVA’s impressive alumni roster is Chris Prynoski, who created Motorcity and co-founded Titmouse, the studio that animated the cartoon portions of Guitar Hero. 2015 computer animation and visual effects graduate Elizabeth Ku-Herrero is still getting jobs as a member of SVA’s powerful alumni network. Ku-Herrero worked as creative director of her group senior thesis Taking the Plunge, an awards-winning animated short that has played at a dozen film festivals. “I’ve traveled all around the world because of my film, and I continuously run into SVA students,” Ku-Herrero said. Part of what makes SVA so magical are the ample opportunities available in the Big Apple. With hundreds of studios in the area, it’s easy to intern while working towards your major. And all of your work will be top-notch considering SVA’s first-rate cameras and printers available at the Digital Imaging Center.
