I’ve been drawing pictures of spaceships and robots since I was four years old, after seeing Star Wars for the first time. (yeah, the original release.) I was always drawing something, up until I joined the U.S. Army at age 19. I’m not sure why, but I didn’t draw much then. Fast forward to almost ten years later. I’m a civilian again. One day I sat down ans started to draw. Wow… I really sucked now.
So, I decided to start 3D modelling. It probably would’ve been quicker for me to just become proficient in drawing again. Now, twelve years after picking it up, here I am.
I wouldn’t say I’m a great modeler. After all, I’m just a hobbyist. But, I think I’m proficient enough to bash out some spaceships and mechs that don’t look too bad.
The program I used to model with is called The Foundry’s Modo . ILM, Pixar, Dreamworks, and many other studios use this same software. I really dig it.
