/3/, with all of the loathing and abhorrence you all seemingly have for him, what exactly has he done to deserve that?
In other words, what the FUCK is your problem with Andrew Price / Blender Guru?
>>
Since you haven't noticed it yet, they hate everyone who's successful with hobbies they share
>>
i'm a very sad person who thinks his place in life is undeserved
so i get really angry when i see well adjusted people who enjoy their hobby and, more importantly, get decent money from that hobby
as you may understand by now, yes, i hate everyone who's good at 3d and enjoys himself

He has an unlikable face and voice.
Also I think he is a lowbrow retard, or at least far into the autismo spectrum.
Finally, he is not that skilled.

How is that getting btfo?
Also in Andy's defense, their HDRIs are really great and I unironically paid and downloaded most of them.
>>
>>711106
idk bout that. I got the month subscription like a year ago, and u had it for like 6 months. and by that time I had like 1000 credits, so i just bought as many textures as i could. and I got to keep them all even when I canceled my subscription.

Andrew Price is fine. His style is very good for entry/mid level. Voice and mood are friendly.
It's just incels like >>711103
and >>711104
who envy him, cause he put in the effort and succeeded, while they just hate and don't seem to realize that they too could be better, if they spent their time on improving skills and not pointless flaming.
>>
No hate, just mild annoyance at seeing his face everywhere on YouTube (which admittedly is a problem with YT's algorithm). Also, he spreads inaccurate information and confuses beginners. He adheres to the face-cam trend and thus contributes to lowering the average quality of video tutorials, because given his popularity he's kind a role model in that regard. And, most importantly, he's a poseur. Not a big one, but a poseur nonetheless. In the field of art, this is a capital sin.
>>
He's Australian. I hate all Australians. I have to live around them. They are the worst. Fuck Australians.
>>
Some people don’t like blender, so they may not like people who prefer to use it as much. It’s too biased but it’s how it is. Also some people don’t care for Poliigon. I don’t like that his tutorials use textures from Poliigon so I have the choice of searching for some other shitty texture online or sign up for his service.

I actually liked the guy until I sat through the podcast with the flipped normals guys. I went from thinking he was a nice guy who occasionally did things that could be misconstrued as scummy, to seeing him as a scummy guy who does things I was misconstruing as nice.

He's just another guy chasing money, and the 'helpful tutorial' persona was just advertising for his subpar paid shit.

Maybe I'm just being too autistic in my interpretation, but I feel he made it clear in this interview his priority is Poligon, and his rant about trying to make a paid add on in open source software rubbed me the wrong way.
>>
>>711095
He's fine. His tutorials are good for beginners. He's not really a devoted 3d artist per se, more of a Blender / Poliigon sales rep. No fault in that, everyone needs to make a living, but the ubiquitousness of donut renders really put him on the meme map.
>>
>>711768
>his priority is Poligon
I don't see the problem. It's his company, of course it's his priority. I love Blender, too, but not to the point that I'd lose my job and become a hobo for it, which you are essentially demanding by the alternative being putting Blender before his job.

I summed it up the wrong way, let me sum it up in a different way.
>Andrew in his pitch video: Hey kids, come learn blender, it's free, it's the way of the future, and it has a great community.
>Andrew is his interview: You know what, fuck blender, fuck the fact that it's free, and fuck the blender community.

And yes, I realize there is nothing wrong with any of those statements. Right now I use nothing but Maya, and I shit on Maya all the time. People shit on the people who pay them all the fucking time. I just found the personality shift jarring, it's just me, I realize that now.

I acted the same way when I found out that Bob Ross was actually a perfectionist who actually painted every piece on the show three times (Once before the show, once during the show, and once after the show to sell) and none of the 'happy accidents' were actually mistakes and were scripted. It rubbed me the wrong way, but it doesn't change the fact that Bob Ross, and the Joy of Painting are awesome.

I hate FlippedNormals more than BlenderGuru. FlippedNormals really sounds like doomer Redditors and the way they speak is really nerve wrecking.
BlenderGuru sounds like someone who is an absolute perfectionist and expects a lot from other people, more than what he could do if he were to do it. I think this way from watching hiscritiques.

Saying that you work/have worked in the industry is a necessary measure while publishing content on the blendlet-infested interwebs. It acts as repellent, helping to keep the discourse somewhat clean and professional. Sadly, the blendlets have been developing resistance, and the effectiveness of this protective method becomes worse every day.

>>712916
Or it could be they realize they aren't really that good, and have nothing unique to offer, so they stress their industry work to stand out. Like shitty people who live off of patreon by going

I dislike the guy because others are way better, but have less exposure.
Particularly flippedNormals, CGMasters.

His videos are ~20mins long, and contain content that would easily fit into 2min.
And it's obvious that he himself only half way understands, what he is talking about.

I don't hate him, but I don't like him either. Here's a few things that irk me about him.
>long ass tutorials that should at best take a few minutes
>facecam
>claims to be an artist, but doesn't actually grasp fundamental concepts
>overexposure when there's other people that have a better grasp on the subject, or wastes less time
>hasn't really worked in a professional setting yet gives off some air of superiority like he has
>people take his tuts at face value and don't go off on their own to learn more about the subject
>constant shilling (I get that he's got a company and stuff though, so it's understandable)
>he's got that "Youtuber" personality (that's probably just a given since you have to game the system, and you gotta do what you gotta do).

This next one is a bit hard to explain though
>makes average "3d" stuff and doesn't push the medium
Generic still lifes, and other things that you see in 3d when people don't have a goal. It's hard to explain exactly what I mean. Like things without purpose, but don't really have artistic merit and don't stand on their own as art. They just exist. Like those renders in early 3d people would make of wine glasses and shit or a mirror ball on checkerboards.

I don't have a problem really with him doing things to do it, or because he enjoys it. It just feels like there's no passion in his work, and that you don't feel anything looking at it. There's no personality. It's all sterile.
Again, it's the hardest thing to explain what I mean.
>>
>>714174
I feel like /3/ is mostly full of people from /v/ that get into 3D so they can make their own shitty game. But they take their shitty /v/ personality onto here.

As for Andrew, he's a business man. With a business degree. Of course he is going to try to make a product that he can sell. Of course he is going to plug in and advertise his products into his tutorials. If you don't have the same textures that he has for his tutorials then there's always the option to use different ones.
>>

He was good when he made tutorials that helped you get your feet wet with blender. If you got good theres nothing left from him to give

Yeh iv really started to sour on the FN guys. They really are doomcucks. The irony is how often they shit on people outside the industry being out of date, which for sure is true, meanwhile they are how many years out of the industry and still making YouTube videos instead?

I mean that's their perogative but I find it very hypocritical when their info is I think about 5 years behind. Sure they still have friends in industry but it's not the same. Things change fast in 3d. Some things don't change at all.
>>

He owns Polligon, He's not endorsed by them. He's literally shilling his own company. Which is kind of scummy, but kind of expected.
Also, while I don't approve of the shilling, I'm pretty sure he gives out the textures and assets that he uses in the tuts for free if you check the description. You're not required to buy them.
Again, I don't approve of the practice, but I can understand why he's plugging his company constantly (considering he's got a stake in it).
Branching out into what he's doing with the textures and linking it with his YT is just good business sense. Not to mention it's a decent way to keep an income going if his YT "career" ever peters out.
>>
he's not bad, sometimes I just don't like his presentation. he seems nice

>>716164
nothing wrong with being the Suzanne of tutorials
>>
He founded poliigon by fucking over an eastern european who he knew would never be able to pursue him, basically stole thousands of textures to launch his site. He's a millionaire many _many_ times over thanks to it.

That and his constant pontificating about an industry he's never worked in. Never had to cut his teeth doing client work so why should anyone care what he has to say?

his tutorials are fine and if you weren't going to pay for them you can pirate them like everyone else does

I think this is some cope from a jilted jealous wannabe standardlet that can't find a career.
Poliigon on its own merits is a good site, I have bought stuff from their on occasion and have been happy with it.
Andy fills a perfect niche, he has great detailed intro/beginner level videos in which he always provides free textures/assets from his site to follow along. Then the general theory videos which personally I have found quite insightful, he puts in a lot more effort than other YouTubers.

Their plugin is a great material browser from blender if you have it too.
He recommendeds people check out his good site. He also recommends other artists/sites regularly too.
A scam? I can't see how.
>>
>>716526
Convenient. Sounds more like a story made up by anons larping as standardlets.
If there was any truth to this it would have spread by now, if only due to the fact that the youtube community loves drama.

It's not a running gag. Claiming Blender doesn't have a bevel function is a running gag.

> Toxic community for real
Much worse communities out there. I will admit we have fallen pretty far from the t/3/apot days. Very few people here actually do 3d anymore, and just pretend to, or argue about about software all day long.

>why are you guys so pissed off about Blender.
It's complicated. 1. Software wars on /3/ are even more retarded than /v/ gets during console war threads. 2. Blender went from a program nearly no one ever used since the UI sucked, to having a new AI, and a bunch of fancy tricks like real time rendering, and grease pencil that brought in a shit ton of newfags, so there is a backlash to that. 3. One guy is really pissed off about the aforementioned blender newfags who keep bombing autodesk youtube videos with stupid comments about blender. Seems like a minor complaint, but I see it brought up so often I might as well mention it.

Had to install a browser plugin that would block his channel so I could browse with a cool head.

Then I come here and see his faggot face is all over this board too. What the fuck. Fucking hate facefags and the narcissism that makes them think I'm at all interested in their stupid faces when I'm trying to learn shit.
