CGTrader Designer Spotlight: Emir Y. Tınastepe

Who is Emir Yaren Tınastepe?

Hi! I am Emir Yaren Tınastepe from Turkey. I am 25 years old and I'm a computer engineer. I started 3d modeling in my university years just to make a survival game featuring our campus with my friends(never happened) but I did not stop modelling after that. I really love video games and I knew if I wanted to make my own game one day I would need 3d modelling skills. Along the way I published an Image to text app, a 2d puzzle game on play store, and composed music for my game on all music platforms. I am still a long way from my dreams.

alexbes lays down some serious PBR knowledge

alexbes dominated one of our previous PBR (Physically based rendering) challenges by winning in both categories. We asked him to answer a couple of questions about his design work, and he was very generous with his time, sparing no detail and going in-depth into his workflow. Bookmark this great interview and share it with your friends, because it really is a goldmine of PBR knowledge.
