    Decided to switch it up and learn sculpting today, I did have the chance to go through a zbrush crash course for 2 weeks a few years back and it's mindblowing how much a free software like Blender can manage to be so similar to it. Current thoughts are it's really fun and I hope to be able to do more of it in the future.

    Nice! One thing I've found really helps with sculpts and 3d in general is messing around with lighting.

    For sculpts in particular, try looking into "3 point portrait lighting". As much as the fundamentals are important, It took me a long time to realize presentation is just as important to research and practice!

    [edit] Just went back and checked page 5. Nice stuff dude!! If you're enjoying doing 3d, keep pushing on that stuff. It's looking good!

    Thanks mate! Yea after modeling a bunch of stuff I realized how much lighting can make or break a scene. Been going through Blender Guru's lighting course which made a bunch of stuff clicked too.

    Kinda regret running away from using a 3d software but I guess a reason is that they are so much accessible now that even someone like me can finally learn to do it.

    edit: Tried to draw something today, started with sketching from references

    My haul for today:

    Blender Beginner Tutorial 1/4 | Blocking Tutorial 5:45

    It's a pretty bad tutorial and I wouldn't recommend any beginners to start with this. Pretty disappointing since it's something official from Blender. I tried to keep up with it for a couple of hours before giving up at the part where I have to unwrap uvs. Maybe next time.

    Most fun I have today, no modeling skills required since it's mostly just using the software to manipulate and duplicate stuff. The stuff behind is a background image.

    Blender Intermediate Modelling Tutorial - Part 1 13:39
    Not sure if I would fully recommend this because it uses an older version of Blender which could lead up to a lot of frustrating moments among moments throughout the entire course. It did run me through a ton of processes and features which I didn't know exist. I think this might be one of the few exceptions in which I recommend people to read youtube comments, it's pretty much impossible to proceed without their help.

    I finally understand enough to be able to keep up with his tutorials I think, I picked something which doesn't seem too hardcore for me to handle though. Going to try out a outdoor scene from him next.

    Thanks, I really appreciate your comment! I wish I could take the credit for making these but they are just pale imitations of the originals I suppose. I did get a lot out of them though, particularly the composition and lighting besides the technical aspects of using the software. Hopefully I will be able to create something on my own after a certain point.

    I tried to do this base mesh tutorial but apparently people don't do this nowadays since it's an outdated technique? I only found out after I read a comment:
    Modeling a character BaseMesh in Blender (Tutorial) 2:28:20

    Also learn how to do a turntable from this:
    360 Turntable Animation Loop in Blender 2.8 - Tutorial (Eevee) 4:17

    I didn't really pull it off to be honest, too many mistakes in the topology (especially the topology!) as well proportional and anatomy problems. I will just have to suck it up and try to do better next time.

    Peas, these are looking awesome! I love the colors on the mushroom one especially. Any thoughts on a project that might use 3d modeling?

    I don't have any plans for creating any personal 3d projects as of now but at the end of the day I really want to go down the fantasy route
    I am having fun with the tutorials so far but I guess I should try to also do something larger in scope like an environment but the tutorials for those are harder to find I think?

    Not my proudest attempt, I sucked at texturing painting and also made a lot of modeling mistakes. Tried to hide those as much as possible in this render. Still had a lot of fun with this one though.

    Crystals - Hand Painted Game Assets - Blender 2.8 19:56

    More texture painting for me tonight, it's kinda therapeutic in a way like painting a miniature in real life. Not sure if my presentation is alright though since it kinda defeats the purpose of paint textures by adding a outside light source as well as emission.

    Finally a tutorial which teaches me how to do the foggy effect aka volumetric/atmospheric lighting. The rendering time though.

    Fresh tutorial from Polygon Runway, with commentary to boot! I've always wanted to do a scene like this. I don't believe I have nailed the lighting but I am still really excited for this one.

    Also I tried to make something by myself but that ended in disaster lol, my topology game is non existent.

    Excellent stuff again!!

    I have a challenge for you, if you're interested in accepting it.

    Try using what you've learned from all these tutorials, and make something from scratch, for yourself.

    It doesn't have to be some epic project, keep it small and manageable. But try and come up with an idea for something you want to make, and then sort of scroll through all the little things you've learned from each tutorial, and apply it to the project you've made for yourself.

    Tutorials are all well and good, but taking what you've learned and applying it to your own work, is a huge part of the battle too!!

    (Feel free to completely disregard this challenge, you're doing excellent work.)

    I second this, and would like to add that this would be a great challenge for you, and if you do decide to take it on I really want to encourage you to see it through to a full piece completion. Even if you think it isn't working out!

    From what you've posted, Peas, you have some really good technical skill! You're just really hesitant to put it to use in anything that isn't a tutorial.

    Maybe try rendering or painting that soldier resting on a log you've been chipping away at? I really like the pose you came up with for that! Or maybe even just rendering the log and field that the soldier is meant to be sitting in.

    And if it turns out poorly, you can at least take comfort in the fact that you tried it out, and that you are still way more skilled than some other people on AC (like me) :P

    Thanks for both of your advice and challenges @Sublimus and @Didgeridoo! The pics I posted makes me seem much better than I actually am, I am just following instructions from the videos. I think I am currently at the level to be able to block out simple scenes, actual modeling wise I am still struggling due to not fully understanding topology. I might be able to pull off the log and field scene from the stuff I got from the tutorials, with no characters though since I have no idea how to go about doing that properly as of now. Get back to you folks in a bit!

    Also Didgeridoo you are pretty much on another level compared to your previous self so don't think lowly of yourself eh, looking forward to see your new works too

    I think you have to take the notion that you need to know what you're doing before you create something for yourself, and throw it out the window.

    I got caught in that loop for many years. Only when I decided "fuck it, I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm gonna TRY!" did I start getting any results. One thing that helped me build confidence was to start super SUPER small.

    For example; take one of your scenes you've made and just modify it to something new. Or combine a few into something new. Or think to yourself "I made a coin, what if I just make a treasure chest and fill it with coins and get a nice render?

    The more I get caught up trying to make some perfectly planned thing, the more I get bogged down. Keep it simple! And I know it sounds crazy, but try and have FUN! (Honestly in my experience, the more dumb my idea sounds, the more guilty a pleasure it is to create, the better it is, and the more people like it.)

    Hey everyone thanks for your support and advice. I tried to push myself and started a personal work last week.
    I am really happy about this despite knowing there are so many problems and flaws I could have improved on and fix, but please feel free to critique on any aspects of the work regardless of your affinity with 3d modeling. Technical stuff aside I know I have big issues with lighting and composition.

    Peas, that's so awesome! Look at that, your very own tree! I love the cherry blossom texture. The design of the tree itself is really interesting, like it's older and been through a lot.

    Kudos to you, buddy!

    Badass!! You killed it!!

    If you're curious about lighting, just find a lighting tutorial that makes a cool mood you want for your tree!

    But either way it already looks great!!
