Feel free to go to the facebook album to download the pictures, and join the group as well - I post up all the videos I create there when they are done.
Everything you see in a 3d video game is a model that is textured. So one of the most important skills you can start to develop is modelling. Today, we are going to start off slowly, with my MAGA Ship.
We’re learning how to change our layouts, how to bring in reference pictures to rotoscope our ships, and we’re learning all kinds of things in modelling - how to extrude, inset, join multiple items, and merge vertices to ensure everything is completely smooth.
After you model this, keep going. Find a tutorial and blueprints to make whatever you want to model. Remember, lateral is important, modelling a cup with Blender Guru’s beginner tutorials is a start, but modelling my spaceship helps you learn more, and then tackling something really interesting can help you take your modelling skills from a complete newbie to proficient. I would love to see something as complex as a star destroyer flying around the solar system.
