When I say teaching myself, I mean I'm not using any tutorials. Now, you might think that's insane and I'm stupid for even trying that, but I have 2 reasons for that. First, I want to challenge myself in my free time because I've got nothing better to do, and secondly, every other time I've tried to 3d model I haven't even gotten a box done because every tutorial I found, I got to a point in it where the thing I was being told to do just would not work, and I didn't know why and it led to me just getting frustrated and giving up almost instantly.
But around a week ago, I decided to give it a go again, no tutorials, just trial and error and looking around 3dsmax and seeing what things do. Now in 1 week, I don't really have much to show for it obviously. But I did get a lot further than I did while using tutorials.
The first model I made was a simple sign. That's it. Here were the results of my first model.
Yup. That's a sign alright.(Some of the texture was stolen from Wind Waker) There are many, many things wrong with it, but hey. I just started a week ago without tutorials!
So next I wanted to make something I could import into Skyrim and actually use with my character. So it was either armor or a weapon, and fuck making armor. So I went with a shield, and I went with a shield from a game I love which has very simple models, OoT. So I went on to attempt to create the Deku Shield. So I tried and tried to figure out what to do, and resisted going to youtube to figure it out, and eventually came up with this.
Now after that, the last model I decided to make(which I started and finished today) was another shield because shields seem simple enough. I'll probably try something a bit more complex later. I went with the Mirror Shield this time, it was a pain in the ass for me and took pretty much all day. All day and not much to show for it :P. My results. I may end up trying to put this one into Skyrim as well. I don't know.
So that's it for now. I'm going to continue trying. But so far going with no tutorials has been pretty good for me.
One of the first things I noticed in this game was Nolan North. But I seriously was not excepting him to be 2/3 of every ped I seen. On numerous occasions, I even seen him talking to another him. I decided to open up fraps and take a quick video of one of these occasions.
As much as i like Nolan North. Before the game comes out, they should really cut down on the amount of Nolan North..at least to the point where he doesn't talk to another Nolan North.
So here you go, here is my proof that they need to cut down on Nolan North a tad. Because this definitely should not happen...ever. Or at least very little, because I've seen this at least 7 times.
Well I'm incredibly bored right now. So I might as well make a list of random stuff that pops in my head that I dislike. This seems like a very good time waster. So lets go!
