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.
The only thing we know about Maylee Mouse: she is French and she creates amazing 3d art characters that look like telltale or post cards illustrations. Her Fox and Robin 3D models were modeled in Blender, sculpted and polypainted with Zbrush and rendered with Cycles. Leaves are hand-painted in Photoshop.
We still hope to contact with Maylee and tell you how she achieved this style in 3d art production.
