Hey guys this a concept of a character I created that I want to turn into a short 8 minute animation. I have no formal training in art or 3D modeling. I plan on documenting my efforts in learning blender from scratch with no previous 3D software experience.
I hope to have this finished (optimistically) by the end of this year 2012 for a release date at the beginning of 2014 I am aware that this is a daunting task to that i say i love a challenge and will depend hole heartily on the reputation of the unity and helpfulness of the blender community.
My physical blender libary consist of
