2D & 3D / my first attempts at modeling and UV wraps.
« on: January 07, 2009, 06:53:55 am »

I had never really seen any low-poly work before coming to this board, and it got me wanting to experiment.
I first tried Maya, as it seems to be the program of choice by most. Long story short, I was a bit Intimidated by the interface.
I had tried Anim8tor years ago, but never got too far with it. I think i got through the first tutorial and lost intrest.

Anyhow, I was checking out some of the posted work here, and ended up downloading blender, and Wings3d

Blender Is a bit much for me right now, but I figured out how to make some interesting shapes in Wings. I ended up making a pretty nifty megaman model, and then proceded on to try to learn how to apply UV wraps. At that point, I figured I should play around with something much simpler to get the hang of things. So here it is.

Some pointers to goo beginner tutorials would be swell. Ive done quite a bit of sculpting with clay and stuff in the past, so the basic principles of form are not new to me
However, right now, Im mostly just moving edges, vertices and scaling things around, with the odd "cut into X pieces" and "connect" commands. Nothing very skilled, just kind of getting the feel for things.

Well, I guess Ive blathered enough for this super basic and pretty crappy model.

this is a piece im working on for the PJ weekly challenge, in particular, the time travel challenge, where you take an old non pixel piece from your gallery and pixel it.

I ended up getting a bit carried away with the size of things,but im far gone into it now, and don't want to start over. Posted below is the original piece, followed by the progress for the pixeled version.

In case anyone was wondering, the pallet is from the Pixel Art Day

Any advice is appreciated
