    I am impressed. I had to take a few 3D modeling classes while at ITT-Tech for my Vis Com degree. While I enjoyed doing 3D modeling and animation, I never got very good at it. Keep this up, looking forward to seeing more.

    A longsword. This one to be precise: http://www.sword-buyers-guide.com/Verneuil.html

    I had a lot of fun with this one. I might do a mace or warhammer next. Oooh, or maybe a musket!

    Very good. Don't you think is time to go to the next step, and try to model something a little more complex, like a motorcycle, a car, a Jukebox, a Pinbal machine, or whatever? After all, they're just a collection of small detailed pieces, like these ones you were doing.

    I have been thinking about doing something like that. These are supposed to be quick little sketches of just one hour of work, and we have more elaborate work to do on a weekly basis like the lamp and the headphones. I suspect that our teacher will have us do a building this coming week.
    Anyway, I have been thinking about use these one hour sketches to do something bigger and more elaborate I can put into my portfolio. I was thinking about my roommates bicycle, it's not extremely complex but I think it would be a good starting point to test out that new approach. Just gotta check with my teacher to see if he's cool with it. Got his class tomorrow.

    All right, as you might be able to tell I got rather bored and unmotivated with these sketches so as per jramauri's suggestion I'm going to take a different approach to this. Instead of modeling a random item from around my apartment I will do something more ambitious and model a suit of armour piece by piece. Originally I was thinking of doing a Milanese style suit of plate armour but then I stumbled upon this beautiful piece of german madness. The level of detail is making me shit my pants so I'm opting for this because it will be a bigger challenge. Also there seems to be more variation of details with all the decor and fluting as opposed to the rather clean and smooth milanese suit.

    Good work! Put all those pots and pans together and render it out. It may be a very nice still life
    What kind of 3D app did you use?
    (answer on #22.. 3ds max. right?)

    @Rain Walker
    Thank you very much! I'm very thrilled to hear that I'm inspiring people.

    @Somelar
    Oh yeah, I definitely have plans to do renders of these. I'm also taking an advanced rendering and lighting class this semester so I'm starting to figure out how to do some nice renders.

    Oh, and I use Maya.

    Here is today's progress. It's going slow because I'm paying a lot of attention to proportions and scale rather than detail. Today I blocked in the couter (elbow guard) which was surprisingly tricky. I should start planning out my approach on paper before I start modeling.

    Nice sketchbook! I really appreciate the amount of models you make and all the detail. As a generalist myself, I consider myself to be jack of all trades, master of none and with that said I think you should keep this up until you truly master modeling and then from there move to the next phase which would be texturing. I kinda stretched to far in the beginning over all of the areas being modeling, texturing, rendering, animation, dynamics etc etc. And I find it difficult nowadays to master a certain area because I want to learn all LOL..Anyhow keep this up and learn new ways of doing things. And avoid Maya's boolean and bevel stuff, only causes headaches Use the insert edge loop tool instead.

    Blocked in the boots. This is going too slow. I'm being too precise and nitpicky.

    Update on the shoe. Catching myself getting caught up in details, I'm going to move on to blocking in the helmet or gloves next.

    Blocked in the helmet. Proportions are all wrong, I just focused on nailing the main shapes.

    Wow..just when I think you're gonna leave out a detail, the next post makes me eat my words.

    Can't offer critiques, but it's awesome to see some rough sketches before you step into the 3D process.

    keep it up!

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    Nice models good to see some 3D models here. Maybe Conceptart could start a forum for this. I would be interested.

    @Quinster
    Thank you sir!

    @reila_
    Yeah I'm looking at my reference photos and I'm hurting my head trying to figure out how to some of those details. But that's why I'm doing this.

    @Dope Fiend.
    Haha, nice to see that you're still following. Thanks for the compliment! It's only going to get more detailed from now on.

    @forestdino
    CA does have a 3D and sculpture forum, but it doesn't have as much activity as the sketchbook section obviously. I posted this thread here because it really is a sketchbook anyway, and I'd like to get more views and feedback.

    About everything should be blocked in now and about the right placement and proportion. Now I'll move on the the fun part which is the details! But now it's spring break. I'll make an effort to do these sketches over the break, but I'm traveling to Seattle with my friends so I might not be able to find time for it.

    Went to Seattle for the spring break so I didn't get any modeling done this week. But now I'm back to SF and ready to continue. Today I fleshed out the helmet a bit.
