This is my first post on BA so I thought I’d introduce myself via a WIP post.
The introduction :
From the Netherlands, 43 years of age, 7 months into Blender. I have dabbled with other 3D soft before in the years I’ve been a graphic designer but since 3D rarely was relevant to my work and the price of good 3D soft was (and is) too steep, 3D was always a forgotten hobby … until 7 months ago.
Andrew Price was the one that made Blender 2.5+ accessible for me through his wonderful tutorials and before long I could use my meager experience with 3D Max, ZBrush trial versions (and Bryce & Poser) to get to know Blender. Right now I’d say I’m a novice but thanks to my self proclaimed OCD my Blender work might be passed as acceptable.
I have massive respect for the artists represented on BlenderArtist.org. The work on here is just amazing! I’ll be leeching on your talent and creativity for some time to come
I’ve tried making a 3D car many times before. I’m a bit of a car nutter and don’t really like to make existing cars (although I’ve tried … oh Lord, I’ve tried). I wanted to express my creativity in car design. Usually (and with other software) I just started with a part of the car to see what shape would emerge. This time … I did exactly that.
Back in time 30 mins : I was watching BlenderForNoobs video on how to design and make your own car in Blender and was underwhelmed. I truly enjoy BFN’s tutorials and they’ve taugh me plenty but this? I could do better! With this newfound motivation I started in Blender, for the very first time, to create my own car.
I’ll only post the latest render. It’s flawed and the rear is the biggest WIP of this WIP. Any critique is highly appreciated!
