I always wanted to try out 3D modeling and animation. I started with Blender software, as it was easy open source and easy to use, with a ton of content and tutorials on their website and online community forums.
Things that I have learned:
– 3D modeling (soft and hard surface)
– basic texturing
– basic character rigging
– basic animation
– sound effect and music integration
I also did one more serious project – I tried to recreate a photo of an abandoned railway station in Nova Gorica. It took me about a month of working on it a few hours a day, but I’m quite proud of the final product.
And here is a short animation movie made by me. I haven’t focused so much on the story. The intention was to get familliar with different rigging and animation options and to achieve some basic overall skills.
