Well I had an idea an posted it in the Adopt a Newbie Thread, and 2 guys are interested so this is the thread.
This is what I was hoping this thread could end up being…I planned on posting a few reference pictures of somthing fairly simple. As people start to learn the harder the stuff would get. Then any newer people could work on making it and post their work in this thread, along with any problems. Then us blenders with more experience can help them along with their problems and tell them how to better their models. Thats pretty much what the wip section is but this would focus the newer people on things that would help them move along and hopefully also motivate them. I remember when I started with blender I would get frustrated cuz I didnt know what to do. And if I figured something out to do it would always be to complicated.
Here is what I am hoping to eventually cover.
- UV mapping
- Low-poly m0delling
- Animation…if someone good at animation is willing to help out. No worries tho it will be a while until we get there.
So to start I want to find out who wants to be a part of this and what skill level your at, as that will determine what objects we start with. So if you interested just post that your interested and include a couple shots of some things you have done. Or if you dont have any, just what you know so far.If you are totally new to blender I would have to say do these tutorials as they will teach you the interface. Then once you understand the basics we can get started
All the rest of you blenderheads who are skilled please help out with this, once we get started, and any ideas send em over. Hopefully we can get some people started in this and help some people learn.

Ok guys here is the “pro-list” lol
Feel free to direct the questions to any of us here, everything doesnt exactly need to be directed at me :P. Or you could just direct it to everyone…but yeah here it is.
Attention all experienced users!
As more and more newbies join its going to be very hard for me to crit and help them with their m0dels. I would really appreciate it if other experienced users who have a grasp on what their doing would help with this project.
For whoever helps…I was hoping this would be a friendly evironment, yet harsh. Because in order for us to help them along we have to really crit their m0dels. So if your helping please just tell them what is wrong with the m0dels and how to step it up a notch. Hopefully that made sense…Thankyou.
