I hope this is the right section to ask this, if not, please forgive me.
A little bit of background: I’m a wannabe 3D artist, I’ve actually looked into this when I was 15-16 (now I’m 23) but it seemed too complicated and I just didn’t have the patience, but now I regret not sticking to it. Since then I just spent my time learning Photoshop, after effects, Video editing and watching porn.
now my goal is to learn 3D animation, and creating my own 3D characters. I know that these are two different skills, I’ll take it one step at a time.
Anyway, my question is:
For example, if I take a couple of photos of someone from different angles, can I use them to create a 3D character of that person, in order to animate it? is there a specific name for this task? or does it just fall under “modeling”? is this something that can be done in Blender easily?
When searching on Google, I’ve came up with two programs 123D Catch and ReCap photo. I haven’t tried them so I don’t know their accuracy, but I would prefer to learn how to do this manually.
Thank you so much and sorry for the long post.
