This week I’ve been working on my 2011 Goal #2: Learn to model an environment in Blender. I’ve been learning from the secret book of Blender modeling ninjas, which I stole from the master ninja’s house in the shadows of the night. OK, actually I’ve been studying from this book: Blender Foundations: The Essential Guide to Learning Blender 2.6 by D. Roland Hess. It’s an excellent book for someone who’s never used Blender before. I’m only on chapter 4, but just flipping through the pages ahead, it looks like it will cover all the basics I’ll need to achieve my goal. So far, I’ve only modeled a purdy little flower and a purdy little vase. If I have time after work tonight, I’ll continue on and model a chair and a table and post some pics. Nothing amazing at all, but I’m a newbie. I must say, there’s something very attractive about modeling. If you know what I mean, nudge nudge. No, I mean 3D modeling, the act of creating stuff from nothing. It makes one feel quite powerful. It’s the chance to build cathedrals, entire cities, things that never existed. Things that couldn’t exist in the real world.
