Tutorial: The ONLY way to improve your 3D modelling and maybe turn it into a side hustle!

I love Blender...

And I truly love to model. It's probably my absolute favourite part of the job.

But if you're a bit new to it, what is a good way to improve? Well, you can't go much further than doing a bunch of kit bashing! Take a look here to see the example we look at in this tutorial:

It's the artwork of Weidi Kang who is a Level Artist at Ubisoft!

Kitbashing allows you to concentrate on building lots of smaller things that you can reuse, rather than trying to do a larger project. Give it a go, and you might also be able to sell the bits you create on Gumroad or 3DArt or somewhere like those

Bye and stay safe.

About the Author

Gary Noden

I am a Senior Creative over at Space Digital in the North West of England. I've been creating CG stuff for the TV and Corporate World for (mumble-mumble) years now and have been lucky to work on some amazing projects. I discovered Blender about 9 years ago, opened it and, like so many other, immediately shut it down, but several years ago I needed to so something simple and cost effective (ie. free) and Blender was the only way. I have never looked back and use it now all the time alongside Maya every working day. I also have a YouTube channel called GENVFX where I teach people how to use every modifier one by one and as deeply as I can as well as the occasional tutorial.
