YARR! Let's learn something fun!

Lighthouse Assets 1: Building the Basic Shell of the Rowboat in 3d

YAAAAARRRRRRR me hearties! I bet you want to make some 3d assets of your own? Well, sit looking confused at long boring tutorials NO MORE! Captain Blue is pleased to bring you part one of the Rowboat Asset learning set! In this part, you will learn how to make the overall shape of the boat, this is the part that can seem confusing however its all just a case of tweaking your shapes! Remember what the lovely St Bob Ross said – there are no mistakes out there, just happy little accidents, so don’t be afraid to experiment! The boat starts out as a box and then we use generic 3d tools.

Extruding, insetting, moving polys and verts. Adding Loops. Have fun with some deforms too! And by using those simple 3d tools that all 3d applications have we can make something awesome! In the next part, we are going to add some detail and some additional parts like the wooden plank seating and so on, so I look forward to you joining me for that.

In the meantime, have a YARR-tastic day!
