I think everyone is skimping on the warm kitchen background. Let me lay it out for you:
At first it’s pretty jarring - I’m not gonna lie. After a while of use, though, it becomes the only thing you can model on. Hear me out:
- The warm colors make it so that the screen does not strain your eyes at night or in a dark room. Nonstop modeling all day, all night. No need for extra programs like fl.ux that discolor your screen and model. Easy looking all day long.
- The warm spectrum of the background colors brings out the detail in the parts you’re modeling as long as those parts aren’t warm colors themselves (which for most people they aren’t). It’s very easy to see where your part has cutouts in it because the contrast between the background and the inside of the part is clear. Try differentiating between a light grey aluminum part with shadows and an off-white or sometimes even white background. Much harder to do.
- The background flows smoothly and doesn’t have any abrupt edges. Miss me with that 3 point faded stuff, I’m not about that. Random cuts into different colors? I don’t need 3 points. Warm Kitchen is a smooth transition into a golden solar spectrum of some of the most visually appealing colors known to humankind. There’s a reason the best photographs are taken during golden hour, and not 3 point faded hour, or plain white hour. Your model could be looking beautiful forever in an infinite golden hour, and you’ll be all the better for it.
“But what about screenshots, Andrew?”
If you wanna grab a screenshot and paste it onto a document to make it look clean, just change the background to plain white for the screenshot - it’s not that hard. Then once you’ve taken that screenshot, change your background back to warm kitchen, and open your eyes again now that it’s safe to do so.
Don’t deprive yourself of the modeling career you’re destined to have just because you’re accustomed to a boring, ugly background. Warm Kitchen is beautiful, and so are you.
