I’ve just started working with 3D modelling. In particular, I’ve followed the first “settling in” tutorials found on Blender Cookie (under the Blender Basics tab), as hinted by the Blender website (installing, interface & navigation, modeling) and I’m going to continue following tutorials and reading the book I’ve bought (the Blender Foundation’s “the Essential Blender” edited by Roland Hess).
So far so good.
Now, I’ve seen a lot of YouTube demonstrations on how to shape a model and I almost always saw that people like to shape the forms using background images (concepts or photos).
My idea is to shape an Ouroboros, in order to 3D-print it. Initially I want to do nothing special for the body (I’d like to shape the scales once I’ve finished the base structure).
The main question I’ve got is: where can I get an artwork of a biting snake, or a photo, with the front/top/side images of the head? Or how could I start elsewise? I don’t think that free-handing it could be that “easy” (it’s not easy to start thinking in 3 dimensions using a mouse and a keyboard at all )
Thanks for any reply
