Yet more discounts, as we head toward Black Friday (next Friday)…
* 50% off PzDB, the Poser external library. The offer has been around for a while now, since the summer in fact, but as I recall it’s only going to last until Cyber Monday. PzDB is not Python-based, so won’t break with Poser 12. It is still the best external Library for big runtimes, in my view. Especially so if you have two monitors and want your Library over on monitor #2, which you haven’t been able to have with Poser since Adobe Flash / AIR became insecure and was abandoned. If you only use Poser, note that you only really need the PzDB 1.2 at its discounted price of $20.95, rather that the more expensive 1.3. Try the free trial first, if you need to re-assure yourself it will work for you.
* Udemy has a big Black Friday sale on, with heavy discounting. They front-load their site with expensive programmer and IT techie courses, but if you dig you can find some creative ones. Some of which seem to be one hour only, which hardly qualifies them as a “course”, so watch out for that as they’re no cheaper than longer ones. Noted by me, usually at £9.99, were…
How to use MotionArtist (the only dedicated motion-comics software)
Complete Clothes Drawing Course – Folds, Wrinkles And Outfits. With a focus on realistic wrinkles. Something you don’t get taught on any comics course, but kind of important if your cast isn’t entirely hard-metal robots.
Cel Shading for Animation in Photoshop and Cartoon Animator 3.2. Looks like a bit of a quickie course, but it may interest some.
Concept Environment Art Using Krita. Looks excellent. He appears to be talking about painting a set of matching 2D environment assets or elements, not painting a full scene or backplates.
3D Coat Sculpture Modelling, Retopo, UVs and Paint. A big, popular introductory course. Better than “Introduction to 3D Coat” which suffers from a very rushed presenter and a giant spider for the vital 3D mesh painting section.
Learn iClone 7 | Character Creator | Unreal Engine Pipeline. Probably a bit out of date by now, and also overtaken by Reallusion’s own excellent free video training.
Poser Pro Game Dev Fundamentals. Poser to the Unity game-engine, an Infinite Skills training course. Not discounted, but interesting that it’s still available. Its subject-matter may be made moot by Poser 12, if there’s to be an easy Unity exporter. If you were wondering, there are no other Infinite Skills Poser courses on there.
