As of early this year I was convinced I could work on 3D modelling to the motivation of my bf. I'm absolutely terrible at art in a 2D space but the first time I opened Blender I was able to make stuff with ease to my surprise whether it was sculpting, simple shapes, textures, lighting, etc. A while back the bfs floated the idea to sketch up our own personal Keyblades from the Kingdom Hearts series. Since I made mine somewhat complex I didn't want to burden 2D artists with the task of drawing it themselves so I took it upon myself to make it in Blender and to my surprise, it came out so much better than I thought.
This one was my own personal keyblade
which I named "Key of F" lol.
I wanted something that was basically me and my interest so this abomination made its way to my sketchbook and eventually to Blender. I'm quite happy about how it turned out.
I made one for the bf here
Since he's a medical worker, he drew this up as a sketch when I made mine. Basically a "weaponized" version of the universal symbol for medicine. Caduceus I think it's called? I'm not 100% sure. I didn't add a token on this render since it was one of the first I finished making.
And the other bf's keyblade/claw
He wanted his to be like "spring loaded" I guess lol. He's an actual 2D artist unlike us so his sketch was pretty detailed and hard to figure out but he loved the result. This is around when I leaned to sculpt in Blender which is an entire different level of frustrating.
Seeing as how 3D modelling has taken off lately I figured I'd show what I've made. Being in the furry community I noticed that there's a lot of people looking to get their OCs made for things like VR Chat so this could be a new step forward for me but only time will tell!
I think a post layout goes here somewhere...
