I was working with 3D modelling some time ago (mainly for archaeological reconstruction and visualization) and recently rediscovered it as a bloody hobbyist artist. So my level of interest is as high as my level of creativity
I discover on myself the flow of ideas, which are mostly long forgotten by the time I am sitting in front of a sketch board or blender again. Also I observe how ideas change, drift away or are altered in the process.
I am simply curious to hear from you your experience with capturing ideas or thoughts and sticking to it during the often long process. Do you use pen and paper sketches or do you note your ideas down? How do you start a project and keep focused? How do you define the scope and not scope?
I am very curious to hear
