After being slightly disappointed with the final product on the last clay sculpt I did, and wishing there was a way that you could go back and edit a piece without needing to start from scratch, I took the plunge and started to learn 3D modelling.
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while but I’ve always run away from because it seems so complicated at first. But, with 3D printing technology getting better and better, I thought it would be a good skill to have for the future, so I tried to stick with it this time… and I love it! All the fun of making 3D things without all the mess, AND you can edit and undo any pesky mistakes, woohoo!
These were the first few models I made. I wanted to start simple, and after learning the basics I decided to model a few familiar characters for practice – I think this was quite a good way for me to learn, because I knew I’d have to make them look right because other people would know what they were supposed to look like, so it pushed me to learn how to do things that I might have run away from again or changed if they seemed too complicated on a design of my own
I’ve still got lots to learn, so for now I’m just making up projects for myself that incorporate learning a new technique and then I can start having some fun making more 3D cuteness!
