Welcome to "My Little 3D"

We are a group of 3D artists who happen to like MLP:FIM and creating fanart with programs like Autodesk Maya/3DS Max/Mudbox, Blender, Cinema 4D, XSI, Zbrush, etc.
This group will showcase 3D pony art, training, and assets across the community.

Become a member!

Are you creating pony related custom models? Then you can join as member of this group :)

If you're not creating any custom models please use the "Watch"-Button on the right upper corner to keep up-to-date with the latest submissions posted here.

For SFM art, we suggest going to our sister group. That group is focused on art created with SFM and models specifically made for the program.

I wish I could make 3D models of my MLP OC's but I don't know why...

Anyone could give me a tutorial or a good program for me for 3D modeling?  (not a professional program,a easy program for beginners)

If you want to make models from scratch, Blender would probablyu be your best bet. There's a learning curve of course, but there's also a ton of resources, tutorials, and even short free courses in it. Plus it's free, so no spending thousands of dollars on ZBrush or Maya.…

Hey My-Little-3D,
I'm just curious if there's a Discord server for 3D modellers? For general discussions and beginners help? Didn't find any in my search so far ^^"
