Carved (again) with a pocket knife, hollowed manually by twisting a drill bit through and created at night in my tent since I was camping out there anyway and there’s shitall else to do in the middle of a rainforest at night
My portfolio is empty you see, yet I have no Blender models to upload because I don’t know how to use it
Maybe you should try it. It’s fun. You’re artistic. I started only this Jan.
I am trying it
I’ve got a very basic familiarity with modelling software from a few years ago when I had a very casual play with 3D Studio Max which was different software, but I’ll figure it out - I already love now simple the sculpting tools are to use
I’m not that familiar with the sculpting tools. Though I used it to model the cushion in my Cabin scene. And I use the smoothing, strip and inflating tools if needed on terrains and such.
The sculpting tools are the only things I’ve used so far :grimmace:
They’re the first ones the fresh installation gives you to use, I guess, but I have to learn how to at least learn how to select faces and skin them with materials - I’m getting sick of everything being just light-grey
lol. I know how bland it feels and looks. Watch some YouTube videos. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be addicted to it. Can’t wait till I see some great sculptures with awesome textures and lighting from you.
OMG! The pressure, is on
lol! Pressure is what brings the best out.
It’s as close as software can get I think, to organic shaping and, yes carving
I also used to have an Intuos drawing tablet, but now only have a mouse but that’s still not a major disadvantage.
I’ve seen people create awesome stuff from basic tools. Like your carvings. Using only a pocket knife and body oil (hehe). I’m not kidding though. I’d give my best shot to learn the new tech and use what I have and what I can afford. It’s the best we could do to keep the traditional art alive now and in the future.
Explain that ^
Found this while digging around: these are the branches I dried myself over months, by well - simply leaving them up the side of the tent under the fly to prevent them being rained all over - there’s Paper-bark, “Old Man” Banksia, Silver Wattle and Eucalyptus…
And here’s a scorpion I found right beside the tent one night: I did not attempt to carve the bug
And I’ll assume photography isn’t regarded as ‘traditional art’, else it’d be flooded with photos - pity though; I’ve got hundreds of remarkable photos from out there of wildlife
wow. Makes me want to hike or something. Finally I’m getting tired of this lockdown. lol
Lol! It’s beautiful…
It’s definately tiny: around 1cm or 10mm or just under half an inch from head to tail - I had to use my head torch for light because I needed the macro lense so close it was nearly touching the arachnid.
That’s a shame…
Sure is Babe
Once I start uploading though, I’ll end up spamming the forum with pics of possums, bush rats, marsupial mice and very large lizards doing all kinds of stuff - nobody wants that
Not on a forum for 3D designers anyway.
