    Will render for food

    ( The credit crunch has claimed my company, so I'm reluctantly closing up the office for the last time and moving back home. )

    Lightwave generalist with 15 years experience available for modeling, rendering and animating tasks. My primary focus has always been archvis but I'm quite capable at animating, rigging, subpatch modeling and texturing too. I've done a lot of modeling work for 3d studios here in Australia, which frees them up to do the fun job of texturing and rendering, and would be quite content doing just this. I'm a trained architectural technician, so reading drawings/blueprints is second nature to me.

    That is a terrible shame, your work looks very good. Best of luck finding something worth your talent. I'm not an employer at this time so I can't help but I hope you find something.

    Things are not great here either but still rolling. That's all.

    totally relate. This is not a good time for anyone these days. Now the stocks have plumited again as of yesterday so that is not helping consumer confidence.

    Aloha James,

    If you find yourself with too much time on your hands, why don't you knock out some video tutorials and sell them? Kinda a Rebel Hill thing.

    What impressed me the most in that video was the Lighting.
    A specialty video like that would bring in some cash and all you'd need was Camtasia and a hosting site.

    Anyway, wishing you the best of luck.

    Somewhere, over the rainbow....

    I am lucky enough to have a good job now, although not in games or video, but I still use Lightwave heavily designing model rockets.

    Hi James,

    Sorry to hear about this.

    I agree with GregMalick; I bought your 'Introduction to Node Based Textures' course a while back, and for me it was the fastest and least intimidating way to get started with LW nodes. If you ever do a sequel, I'm there.

    I believe the economy is going to be changing because it can't run with a mass number of business falling like this. I'm hoping the government will help everyone if possible or lower standards so that we all can get on our feet again.
