    Pixels and Polygons - a beginner's 3d sketchbook

    Hello internet! I've decided to learn 3d sculpting. I have no experience with this whatsoever, so criticism is greatly appreciated.
    My first project will be to create a stylized character. Here's my progress so far -

    I might not get to update as often as I like (I have other 2d projects to work on) but I'll try to be as diligent as possible.

    It'll take a while to load all the frames.

    I like your room. It has an old school feel to it. One thing I would recommend is trying out the Anti Aliasing settings under mental ray, and upping up the shadow quality a bit. Looks great.

    i was really into 3d design a while back, i would advise to start something very simple and see it through from modeling uv mapping and texturing then maybe import to a game engine. instead of starting numerous projects which will probably never be finished, maybe a prop of some kind, finish it move on and then look back at what you could change and do better,

    good luck!

    Thanks for the advice all!
    Yah...I tend to start a bunch of projects that don't always get done. I'm also mostly focusing on 2d right now...which is why my 3d stuff tends to just be odds and ends whenever I find the time and the motivation.

    I'll try to model a single building. That seems like it might be a reasonable task.

    Just messing around with unity. You download it here: [link removed] (If you're ok with running mysterious .exe's from someone on the internet)

    I really like your work! Did you make the glitch art in Blender too?

    Haven't updated in a while...Here's a city.
    I sorta stopped the previous game project after I played Proteus. It did what I was trying to do...but better.

    Insane improvement! Whats the timespan between the top ones and this city? It's like two different worlds!

    Thank! The posts are dated at the top...so I guess that was in November. Buildings are a lot easier to model than characters...so it's not really a fair comparison. (also this isn't rendered in real time like post #4 and #8)
