I want to model characters in Blender. Although I know the basics, for some reason I start to fall apart as soon as I begin to model characters. What gives?
general tip, nowadays people dont model characters anymore, you sculpt and retopo them, so id look into sculpting for character creation.
also keep in mind characters is the hardest thing to make, so how about some props and buildings to start off with?
You need more practice, that’s it. There is no “Build my own model that I want” button in blender. You’ll need to practice and LEARN a ton of stuff before being able to model anything as good as you conceive it in your mind.
What is the hardest thing to model is a matter of subjective observation and ones opinion.
