First Experiments with Blender

Post created 2014-04-26 19:34 by Gabe Koss.

I have always wanted to get into 3D modeling. Each time I started in the past I have quickly found myself intimidated with the cognitive overhead until last night and this happened.

I went through a couple tutorials and started find myself really getting the hang of the interface and the tool itself. More importantly I started to grasp the fundamental concepts involved with creating scenes and how the different objects can be used to create pretty magical images.

I really can't take any creative credit for this but I wanted to share what I made, even though I was basically following some excellent online tutorials step by step. I did a number of very simple introductory orientation tutorials which didn't have any interesting renders to speak of. However I did end up with these two "masterpieces":

Glass Cup with Cloth

For this image I followed this tutorial on Youtube.

"Belgarath" in Ice

For this image I followed this tutorial on Youtube.

I am excited have made even this modest progress and ultimately what I would like to do for my first "custom" render is model of the spacecraft from Arthur C. Clarkes classic Rendezvous with Rama. It's ambitious and I have a lot to learn before I can even begin to approach something that complex.
