The hard thing in 3d modeling is light. Second is polygon.

Great content, but frigging awful sound quality! :/ Way to much harsh dynamic, I have to continuously adjust the volume. It's also quite difficult to understand certain words you speak, but that could be that English is not my mother tongue. I will watch the rest of this video and then try to find another channel because of the bad sound quality.

 Hey! Thank you for this video, is really hard to find this type of information. I'm in a course about Game Art but they don't explain how everything works (theoretical stuff).. I would love if u talk just a little bit slower xD (because I'm not a native english speaker and sometimes is hard to understand what are you saying.. I hope you don't take this the wrong way) So thank u very much and keep up with the good work ! ^^

@OnlineMediaTutor  I thought it was because of that. That document is really helpful! Thank you! :)

I actually intentionally speak quickly. Short snappy videos seem to work best on YouTube. I do create written companions to the videos though. You should be able to find the link in the video description.

Thank you! Did you have some more references about max-Poly-Count per second for some more devices e.g. some iPhone models and the 'NextGen'-Consoles? Thank you very much

Unfortunately not but I do have information on a range of topics here - https://drive.google.com/folder/d/0B7NaQpPR4mHAcUI2YWI1X3Awdkk/edit You're welcome ;)

make sure your uni dont see your google profile picture
Dain P (3 years ago)
Hey dude, sorry! Yeah, I mean I'm not sure exactly how that specific topic went, but I'm doing well, college is going quite well, my overall grades currently include a distinction so I'm more than on track for continuing to uni after I finish up here!

+Dain P You never let me know how you did on this task? Did you get a good grade?
