Blog [#59] - #Portfolioday Inspiration & Optimizing your portfolio.

Evening people!

Another busy week this one! Big deadline coming up at work (I might have mentioned this before :D) so I made a habit of coming in earlier than usual and changing my sleeping pattern for a bit this week. But that will be all my complaining for this week as I am currently typing this entry from a nice and chill location in Belgium (visiting our parents :D) as we scheduled a little holiday again, we will be flying back on Sunday though! 

Mentorships ramping up!

The reason why I love doing these Mentorships is that I am still finding out stuff myself, as last months focused more on the modelling side, this month will be more focused on environment building, composition and storytelling, which is something that I enjoy more doing and talking about :D.

It's going really well and I have been enjoying it, and it has been a really nice learning experience for myself as well. Constantly adjusting the way that I work and experimenting with new methods is fun, but also adds to the workload!
I'm having fun though, so it's all good!

Making my own (blog) website?

Other than this I have been thinking about some longer term plans when it comes to my blog, and I have been thinking if it should be worthwhile to build a dedicated website for my blog posts, resources and more... But then I have to think about the consequences  


this week it was portfolio day as well, so instead of sharing my personal work this week I will dedicate the next section to basically become a massive wall of inspiration for both you and me. There is a lot more that I can share, but have a look at this snippet of Inspiring people that are constantly pushing themself to be better!

Let's have a look at a nice hardsurface environment by Marcin Wiech.
What really stood out to me is the colour palette, a contrast between black, white and orange really works nice a lot of the times. Another thing that I like about this scene is the use of the volumetrics in this scene, nicely pulling the attention to the door with the light.

This is a really nice example for use of colors, and the power of what a simple (technical wise) can achieve, with little pieces of storytelling like the little maintenance area.

So thank you so much for inspiring me Marcin, this is a really nice and well put together scene.

Alright people!
That's going to do it for me for this week, I'll catch you in the next one!

If you want to see something added to this blog, or if you were inspired by a piece of art this week, please share it down in the comments, would love to see what drives you to create your art!
