Are you an artist?

Post by desiderata »

Hi there!
just new to 3d and stuff, do I have to be a good artist to be able to create cool 3d? I've followed some tutorials somewhere but didn't really create a good one ...
I've seen some sites of great 3d artists and on their info it says that they liked drawing and fine arts, I was hoping I can do something like theirs without being that good in drawing and all. :roll:

Anyways it's great to have blender3d in opensource now I can have a 3d app for linux rather than Maya (I can't afford it).

Hi! Welcome to Blender!

You don't need to be a good artist from the beginning... but if you apply to 3D you'll become :) is mostly centered on Blender development so these forums are mainly for coder/artists feedback on what to add/enhance on Blender.

For a wide user base, with galleries, tutorial links etc, please visit

If you don't already know it.

Thanks for the encouragement :)
I'm really pretty bad at drawing (also in programming) (for an IT student - Shame on ME ! :cry: :lol: )
Anyways good luck on the programming! maybe sometime soon I'll be contributing to more opensource programs like this one that has lots of promise 8)

if you are thinking specifically 3d, then some painting, sculpting, etc classes are not going to hurt :)
