For the past couple of weeks I have been mulling over on what to do next with Blender. Many recommendations from other users (Modron) suggested that I manage my time in projects and correlate closely with this forum in order to get feedback and assistance.
I have decided to start my project very soon and it is going to be something about the heritage and history of my country (New Zealand)
This led me to think of recreating captain cooks ship which is in a battle with the Taniwha (In Maori myth it is a sea monster)
I plan to spread my time as follows
- Modelling - 3-4 Weeks
- Texturing - 2-3 Weeks
- Lighting - 1 Week
- Compositing - 2 Weeks
I have drawn a sketch of what I am trying to create (very similar to the New Zealand 50cent coin).
I will start modelling stage this weekend
Please let me know what you think or any additional suggestions
Oh and sorry for the dreadful draft. I am not at all skilled with Gimp :o (thats why I only left the Taniwha as a silhouette
