Will you please grow a pair? You did not get trashed in the news&chat forum, you just overreacted to what people said.
This is (for the most part) an artistic forum, people respond with C&C (Comments and Criticism) as a matter of course to anything - art and tutes alike. Being able to not only take constructive criticism on the chin, but to be able to act upon it, is one of the virtues of a great artist. I believe shbaz made that point in the N&C thread
As you’ve deleted the tute I can’t comment on it myself, so I’ll just try to clarify other’s comments and say why they weren’t “Absolute hatred” or “Saying it’s total shit” as you put it.
First up, the 100x100 sphere. True, a subsurfed sphere has the same effect at rendertime, but it is much easier to handle at modelling time. The 9902 verts that result from a 100x100 sphere are just unwieldy in the 3d view. Besides, a default 32x32 sphere with Set Smooth turned on is more than sufficient for most purposes.
That was pretty much the only thing that had been mentioned, and you post your journal entry that nuance9 noticed. I don’t know why you got so upset about that, if you don’t want people prying through your innermost thoughts, then don’t post them on the internet with a link in your signature %|
Hmm, nico’s “You can’t make a beginner tute while your a beginner” comment… Maybe an analogy would be best here.
Say you were learning how to drive a car. You’d want to learn, from the start, how to do it right, so as not to get into any bad habits. Only someone well experienced in driving cars would know some of these habits to avoid, and some of the ones to get into, simply because of how long they’d been driving. Someone who’d only just started driving a week ago would be in the dark about such things. But if a beginner tried to teach you how to drive a car, sonce they didn’t know to avoid these bad habits, you’d learn from these bad habits and do them yourself.
The same applies to 3-D modelling. There are habits to avoid (eg highpoly when it’s unneccesary, AO where it’s unneeded, reliance on blender’s dodgy booleans) and ones to learn (eg edgeloop modelling, how to use subsurf well) that another beginner wouldn’t know yet.
Noone said “take this tute down, burn it, delete it, go hide in a hole, never come back here again” they said “this that and the other are problems, try fixing them”
Incidentally, reading through your journal life seems to be going not well for you at the moment. That or you have depression (a “depressive illness” is the medical term - it’s considered an illness not a stupidity problem) and should see a doctor about it. If you’re Australian then this might help. (Even if you’re not Aussie it still could help quite a bit too, and chances are wherever you’re from has something similar)
BTW: your “parting of the sea” image is awesome, I hope you don’t mind be using it as my desktop wallpaper I can’t wait for you to get good enough at blender to do stuff like that, you’re clearly a good artist.
