I started another 3D dragon the other day, and this one wasn't supposed to be cute looking, it was supposed to be mean/scary looking but apparently I am stuck making cute dragons lol So this is the very basic start of a model, there are a few ways to do this, this is just a bunch of spheres, but you can also just move and inflate one sphere to get the general shape you want.
hug me?! He does look like he wants a hug. This is very basic, later on you go and add detail to the model.
And then you polymesh the model and end up with something that still looks a little odd.
Another click of a button, and you then have a smooth model you can add,draw,subtract or alter many many ways.
Which I haven't done yet, so off to start doing that now.
