Modeling

Along with all of my painting and drawing I do some 3D modeling as my job is in the modeling department of Disney interactive. This is just a personal project I am working on. 3D work and sculpture is surprisingly near to drawing. I think the shape making and composition skills involved in drawing apply themselves well to modeling. My experience seems to be that if you can draw it you can model it. Be aware there is a learning curve involved in learning the 3D programs though.

Hi David,

I've been following your blog for some time now and I'm always surprised at the level of awesomeness that you continually bring to the table. And now you rock at modeling too?! Yikes!

I'm an Environment Artist/Level Designer myself and I'd love it if you stopped by my website, maybe let me know what you think.

"If you can draw it you can model it." That would be a cool song... if it was a cool saying.

(Also, this is cool... you do everything well, you jerk).

I'm a french art student, and since I discovered your blog, I always wanted to tell you how I really, really love your drawings. I'm so impressed by your graphic system, your sensibility, it is simply amazing.
You're a master.

hello,

A really great program that I would highly recommend for 3D modeling is Modo 301 by Luxology, and take note that this program is to have a new substainal upgrade to 401.
Go to the Luxology site and check it out...and some excellent tutorials.
by the way...love your blog, your site and your wonderful drawings and paintings. Thanks for sharing
