(a)DDL_019_How can a good idea be a bad idea
Today I had this great idea to use ZBrush to bring my 2D artworks in 3D space. They would look alive and amazing, so that could only be a good thing, right? Wrong! The result may have been extraordinary, but the time I would need to invest to use it, doesn’t really exist in our timeline!
Still, I permitted myself to spend almost a day researching, downloading, installing and playing around with ZBrush, before I said to myself “What the hell are you doing? There is no time for that!”.
Now you may ask, why didn’t I think of that earlier. It is not that I don’t have the experience not to fall into that trap. It is because ZBrush is an amazing program and it helps create equally amazing artworks. And I always wanted to use it in a project!
But… When on a set timeframe it is crucial to stick to it. It wouldn’t be useful for the entire project to go south, just to create some amazing art. I needed to lose a day to get that, but maybe it was necessary to help some of you not make the same mistake!
