Blender Model by sashas Blender Model by sashas

I haven't done much work since the other day, but I thought I'd update the file because, I wanted to show exactly what I meant by what I posted the other day. LOL.

First off, Blender is a program used to create 3D/CGI graphics, movies, and games. It's free, and you may download it here: [link] I learned what little I do know from online tutorials (don't we all love google?)

I put up the wire frames, which are what I move about to get the form I want. I basically move the points/lines/faces with my cursor until I get the form I want. Subsurf makes the lines I edit conform to my shape and smooths out my model. Unfortunately this does not do the work for me. The first model has like 160 or so shapes. While the model on the bottom as around 2700 or something. I add these faces myself by cutting the faces I have up (usually in half).

Hmm, it may be that it's 2am, but somehow, I don't think that clarified anything. Oh well, I'll upload the finished head when I get to finishing it, which will supposedly be soon.

Yesterday's work on my 3d model. I didn't do any work today, because I felt sick and slept most of the day. Anyway, as you can see, I've made an outline of the shape. Basically, I took a cube and divided it up so that I could get the shape I wanted. Next, I need to define the shapes of the eyes, nose, and mouth. After that I edit everything in a 'subsurf' / smooth mode which is more representative of how the end rendering will look.

I'll upload my progress as I go.

This is good! I just downloaded Blender, and I hate using tutorials (I do a lot better if I figure things out for myself.) And I found the sculpting tool, but then I had to close it out to restart my computer, and genius me forgot where I found it at. XD I'm still learning though.

Hello, I know it's none of my business, but I noticed your comment as I was about to write my compliments.

I just wanted to say that, if you look at the image, you can see that it took her a lot of time to work on this; I, using animation and creation programs such as this one, know how tedious a task this can be. Not to be rude, but to even consider asking her to do a request is a little arrogant.
If you knew them personally, it may/would be a different situation but I can't say I believe that's the case.

If you really respect this artist, or any other, you should only ask if they're open to commissions (or trades). If you can't afford one, you shouldn't ask; otherwise ask if any contests would be available in the future that would give you a chance at receiving such prize as something like this.

Sorry, again, for sounding mean and like a White Knight...I don't even know this artist, this is the first thing I've ever seen by them; I would say this to anyone who'd asked the same. Just thought I could give you a little friendly advice for future reference, since doing things like this can hurt the artists feelings, or make them angry.

Good day to you! :)

no its ok and thank u :)
but i really didnt mean to bother the artist or something. i was really happy at that moment when i saw her art and knew that she can do or create a manga or anime face model in blender, so i thought to aske her, but i didnt mean by asking her that she must do it, it was her decision if she accepted my requset i would be very greatful to her and if she didnt thats ok with me cuz i know its needs a lot of time and effort to do and i never thought by asking her this that i would hurt her feelings and im really soory if did cuz i reaaly didnt meant it.and since she never reply to my requst i took that as she didnt accept it and it was fine with me.
any way, thanks for ur adivce u opened my eyes on something i didnt reailze it before cuz i always got cought in the moment and do things without thinking but i never meant any harm for any one.
so i hope she isnt angry with me cuz of my requst and wish her the best and to u too:)
thank u and Take Care ^____^
