I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.

Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.

Thanks for the tutorial. Easy to follow but I feel it needs more explanation. My issue at the moment is after I do the vertex normal step, my tree’s shading gets darker and lighter as I move around it. How can I avoid this?

Thanks for your quick reply. Im trying to create a similar tree but no success lol. Even when I apply the normals some of them are being reversed. Would be a hassle for you to get more in detail pls?

Hey, there is no need to attach the leaf to the sphere, the sphere is just here to help you having a great shape for the leaves, I usually place them by hand.

Very well done and thank you. Question: How did you attach the base leaf to the sphere please?
