I’m working on a logo for a game development group at school and I could really use some advice. This is my first real project using Blender, and I’m not really much of an artist.
I plan on animating the dragon to kind of fly in and burn the engraving into the wood, an effect based on something like this:
The model itself is almost 2M vertices and grinds my computer to a halt(AMD 6 core at 3.8Ghz with 12 G ram), and I’m using an HDRI image in the background.
What can I do from a technical point of view to optimize this image? And, what can I do from an artistic point of view to correct any mistakes that I have made (bear in mind that I’m not an artist so please, be gentle).
