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.

Making Decals With Hexels
2 January, 2018

Mark Knight showed how he created some very pretty skins for cars in Gran Turismo Sport.

You might have heard about Hexels, which we’ve covered a lot on This is a very nice tool, which allows creating beautiful pixel art and animations. What you probably didn’t know, is that it can also work as a great tool for making beautiful decals.

Mark Knight from Marmoset recently published an article, which showed how he used some of the images, created in Hexels and imported them as decals into Gran Turismo Sport. Gran Turismo Sport Decals are imported as Vector image (.svg) files, which enable you to resize the image without losing detail, and they have to be below 15kb. Quite a challenge, but with Hexels you can actually do this pretty quickly. The details are all in this post, and here are the final results of the work.

I would go for the Affinity Designer and Photo. Much more powerful tools. Both in sale at the moment.
