Sam - 3D Render

For class! I thought I'd upload this real quick. I'm starting to learn how to use a 3D program called Modo. It's pretty low-poly for now, so there's obvious edges in the design.

Hm, somewhere down the road I think I'd like to dabble into creating 3D scenes from concept art. Likely nothing too huge, just a character and a few props/environment elements. Even that may take upwards 100 hours!

You know, it just dawned on me that I forgot to add some scratches/rough spots onto the UV! That would have been nice, but the renders are done. >.<;; Ah well!

What do you 3D artists think of how this turned out? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello Urnam-Bot,

I gotta say, this is a really good low-poly model of this robot character! Are those Tringles or N-gons on his face? If N-gons, watch out for those. He is perfect for adding in a rig and animating for a video game.

Overall, its a great design! Do plan on being a 3D Character modeler?

Thank you! I don't think there are n-gons, unless you count some 4-sided polys to be n-gons? Would it have been better for to me to divide those? :)

Thanks again---I don't plan on being strictly a 3D character modeler, because my emphasis is likely going to be focused on digital illustration and imaging, but I highly enjoy this and do plan on taking more 3D courses!

N-gons are polys with more than 4 vertices. They tend to break baking programs and produce weird results in animations and such, so its best to convert them into tris and quads.

Ah, well, there are no n-gons in the model then. :D Only quads and tris! Thanks!

I really like the colors and shapes used in this project. It makes me want to pick up modeling software, but I might put that off for a bit until I at least have 2D and IRL art mastered.

Thank you! It's a rather "different" skill, so if you picked it up I think you would succeed even without 2D art expertise. :D

Reminds me of games around 2000, when lara croft still had triangle boobies. Nostalgica.

can you teach me how to do this

Nice! My bro is working with 3D modeling at his school too!

Thank you!

I'm not specifically into 3D modeling but I am taking classes for it! It's a sweet skill to have.

It sure is, it looks both challenging and interesting. I hope you enjoy the course and learn lots! :)
