I’d like to pass along some info/links/etc., that other CG artists may also find useful or interesting. Read on for the list.
- HDR Light Studio version 3 has been released. It contains some great new features on top of an already excellent application. FWIW I use this application in my own work and find it saves me a LOT of time.
- GREYSCALEGORILLA – While I do not personally use Cinema 4D I find a lot of inspiration from Nick’s blog/tutorials/posts/etc.. I also enjoy and admire his teaching methods. He’s very relaxed and natural with smooth delivery. His site is not only Cinema 4D topics, if you use After Effects you’ll appreciate his site as well. Be sure to check it out!
- http://toddd3d.blogspot.com/ - My good friend and speed modeling guru Todd Daniele has created a blog. He’s posting some speedsculpt video captures and it’s great to see how he works.
- http://blog.irayrender.com/ - The iray developers blog. Great to see some insight into where iray development is heading and what it’s capable of. Would be nice if readers were allowed to post questions or comments though.
- http://www.m3dhdr.com/ – New site for purchasing HDRs with a couple of free samples also available.
- iray manager script version 2 – Thorsten Hartmann has updated the great iray manager script again to include some new features and improved workflow. Thanks Thorsten for these updates.
- http://www.hdri-locations.com/ – The website where Thomas Suurland sells some absolutely beautiful HDRs & backplates. Be sure to check out some of the stunning environments & locations he’s visited and captured!

- http://www.digitaltutors.com – I recently signed up at their site and have been watching various training videos as time allows. I’ve found it very helpful to have such a large collection of videos for so many different applications close at hand. Great for cross-training on various applications.
