For Christmas I reckon I need some 3d modelling books.

I will be getting:

  • digital lighting and rendering
  • Digital texturing and painting
  • An expose or concept art book (which expose would you recommend- it will be used for reference when creating my own images so a range of arch viz and concept art)
  • Maybe Sculpting human anatomy

My weakness are:

  • lighting
  • Rendering
  • Texturing
  • UV
  • Human anatomy
  • Composition and storytelling
  • Motivation and inspiration

Any books you would recommend me?

I thought Art Fundamentals from 3D Total was a good buy.

If you’re going to get into animating or posing, then I’d consider The Animator’s Survival Kit (Expanded Edition)

Digital Lighting and Rendering was also helpful for me.

Good luck!
