ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

Opinion
3d designer Thomas Valdieri from Moebius Studios has recently shared a very interesting video of an interactive vehicle, rendered and assembled in Unreal Engine 4. Project Nissan grew from a real proposal for the automotive maker Nissan. There’s still a lot of mystery about it (confidentiality agreements), but we do have tiny details from the artists himself.

The model of the car was created from a basic mesh, which was done for the previous project at Moebius Studios. All the modeling process and unwrapping was done with 3DS Max. I have to admit, it was a lot of work. I had to spend a lot of time unwrapping, modeling, creating an environment and preparing all the assets for UE4. It took me about 3 weeks, working 10 hours a day. No weekends, nothing like that.

Once I was inside Unreal, the first thing I did was the lighting. I did this before the shaders, because I needed faster previews. I just used “artificial lighting”. No skylights or directional lights. After I felt comfortable with the lights, I’ve started my work on the shaders. And only after that, it was time to do the interactive content.

I have to admit that I got no programming experience. UE4 is an incredible opportunity to learn a visual programming tool. I learned Blueprint system during 3 weeks of intense study. Blueprints in the project are quite complex, so it was a great challenge for me. Making the lighting of car work with Blueprints was not too hard, once you understand how Blueprints function. Epic actually provides pretty decent program documentation.

Last step was setting up the cameras, which are also full of Blueprints. Unfortunately this project is not available to the public and cannot be on sale. But I do want to try to develop some other content for Unreal Marketplace in the future.
