If I were a sculptor..but then again, no...

After an hour's nap, I woke up and I thought "I think I'll try to do sculpties." So I came and downloaded ROKURO and Wings3D so I could look at the tutorials on Natalia Zelmanov's blog. ROKURO was easy, but I think you have to actually buy it to save any files. I'm not in the habit of buying software. Don't judge me! For the past few years, I just mention that I want a program and suddenly I'm downloading a zip file. For ROKURO, I'd have to pay for it in-world and get the registration. At least, I think that's how it works. I'm not all upstairs today. :)

So I turned my attention to Wings3D and using a tutorial, I made......

It's a mushroom.  I promise.

A mushroom. IT IS SO!

Ok, so it sucks. :) I'm not ashamed to admit it. I also started making a pouch for my soldier belt, but that kind of really bit the big one.

But as hard as it is for me to learn how to do this, it's actually quite a bit of fun! I think if my brain wasn't so foggy at the moment, I'd be doing a bit better. :) So yes, look for sculpties to be added to the Ch'Know belts in the future!

[It's not going to jack up the prices. I promise. lol]

oh you know what, I tried doin sculpty's for the longest time and they all came out so funny lol, my bf got me this

It's taking a shortcut in a way but trust me it isnt all THAT easy, but a lot easier. it's a bit costly too but has made my stuff look so much better, worth the investment in the long room...I'm so bad at 3d editors and even worse at taking instructions so :P this was great ^^

Oh cool! Thanks, I'll check it out. :) I don't have any grand plans of making shoes and all the other stuff that the other sculpty makers are SO good at, but it would be nice to be able to add a more realistic pouch or buckle to my stuff. :)
