Are these kind of books like 'How to Render' and 'How to Draw' by Scott Robertson and 'Color and Light' by Jamer Gurney useful for 3D work?

I made I render that I thought it was pretty shitty and realized I needed to study more about this stuff, but I'm afraid these will only help in traditional hand-drawn methods

If not, can someone recommend me something?

how to render is some blizzard shit. Scott is ex blizz, he told me this in "secret"

He told me he just got sick of it, lol

The render engine is doing that kind of work for you. Better learn about composition, lighting, posing... traditional subjects in photography.

I think lightning may be my weakest point in rendering now, do you know any books that covers this?
>>
>>613205
'digital lighting and rendering' was nice book, but pretty basic.
>>

Judging by the cover it looks like one of those basic mentalray renders,ew

If it's not blender you could keep your Garbo tuts away from me. I actually want to make it in this industry
>>
>>613260
its really old book, doesnt teach you any specific programs but concepts that havent changed, and wont change.
>literary judging book by its cover
>>
>>613261
who the fuck is talking about tutorials here?

>>613270

What I'm saying is that I'm looking for something that teaches you how to make pretty renders. It may not be necessarily be about 3D rendering, but something more related to lightning, colors and stuff (that's why I asked if "Color and Light" is good for this)

The fucking first post you fucking inept doofus

With Blender you're going to make it into the donuts industry. Meanwhile your "guru" is the one making a living out of you doofuses.

No I dont think a 3d guy would learn anything useful from that.
>>
How to draw could help but render probably won't. You should still learn it though.
Drawing skills, sculpting, 3d, they all add to a nice skillset.
