    #11 Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows - All I want for Christmas is Blender ! 2/2

    #11 Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows - All I want for Christmas is Blender ! 2/2

    This is a very special episode of CG Talks (the podcast where CG guys talk about Computer Graphics) as we have two guests : Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows who run a Blender tutorials platform creativeshrimp.com together. (It is the second part of a 2-part episode)

    This time we let ourselves loose on being Blender nerds and talked about the Blender Conference 2022 experience in Amsterdam (where we got a chance to meet in person after the long pandemic break). Aidy, Gleb and DJ share their impressions of the event and how Blender’s awesome community is wonderfully growing.
    What is color ? How to be an artist in the face of modern technology and A.I. ? Is it possible to reach Hollywood quality with a home PC ? What does music have in common with CGI ? Those are just a few of many questions that we touch in this friendly conversation.
    We end the podcast with some heartfelt Christmas wishes from Gleb accompanied by a soothing guitar strum.
    We wish you a Shrimpy Christmas and a Creative New Year !

    Happy listening and happy rendering !

    #11 Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows - The secret creative life of shrimps 1/2

    This is a very special episode of CG Talks (the podcast where CG guys talk about Computer Graphics) as we have two guests : Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows who run a Blender tutorials platform creativeshrimp.com together. (It is the first part of a 2-part episode)
    We open the conversation by getting to know a bit more about shrimps and their creative abilities, how Gleb met Aidy and how they both started their adventure with CGI and Blender. We get to know (or come up with new versions of it) the backstory behind the CreativeShrimp name.
    DJ asks the Shrimps about the secret formula of their collaboration, how they manage to run a business on-line being located in Poland and the United Kingdom.
    Gleb and Aidy recently launched their new lighting course, and we discuss the success of it. Whether you are a Blender user or not you’ll find a lot of great knowledge and observations in Gleb and Aidy’s approach to lighting. After all without light there is no vision and no image. Talking about the great supportive community around creativeshrimp.com we take a break in the conversation only to jump back to the Blender community and general nerdiness in the next episode (to be released soon !)
    Stay tuned and share the podcast with your CG friends

    Happy Listening!

    #10 Kay John Yim - Effective CG artist's toolbox 2/2

    This episode of CG Talks (the podcast where CG guys talk about Computer Graphics) is the second part of our conversation with Kay John Yim - a London based architect who also creates inspiring personal CGI fantasy artworks.
    Kay John’s main tool of choice is Cinema 4d but he has used a lot of 3d tools throughout his career (including Houdini,Rhino,IClone and many more). We talk about the softwares and workflows he uses to create the stunning and very detailed architecture environments in his artworks as well as tools he uses to create his characters. We touch the topic of AI tools that cause so much hope and controversy in the digital art community. John creates a lot of animated artworks so we talk about using render farm services (such as our service) and his experiences with it.
