Just wanted to say hey, and give a quick shout out to all the talented artists on here. Some really amazing stuff Im seeing.
I have no training whatseover in graphic design. but Ive recently become interested in creating still images with 3D software. Nothing too elaborate, but just 3D images inside of a home or office with a few people.
So, Ill put my questions out there, plain and simple.
1) For a beginner with no training or experience, should I even bother, or do you need professional training to be any good at this?
2) Ive tinkered around with the software a bit, but I am confused. Ive downloaded the software, Genesis and a few other things (dont want to buy anything until I can get some type of grasp on this stuff), but I am wondering….how do the enviornments work? For instance, I saw stuff like “Dream Home Living Room”. Now, do you need to buy the entire house for this too work or can you just load an individual room itself. And in that regard, HOW do you load those enviornents you purchase/have?
3) In terms of character models, I am still messing around with it, but how do you load characters into an environment? Plays off of my last question. I may be getting a little ahead of myself, but it would be nice to know for future reference.
4) This is kind of an all encompassing question….can you just load character models youve downloaded (for instance Victoria) into an environment youve downloaded and then just situate them from there, or is it more complicated than that.
Im sure Ill have more questions in the future, but I would be very greatful if someone could point me in the right direction. Pretty lost here! haha
Thanks alot, and hope to be able to discuss this more in the future.
