Blockout Party!

Blockouts are a 3D Artist’s Best Friend. What do I mean by this? Its like an architect plotting out his ideas on paper… Its like building with lego blocks but better… Or really its like creating a plan in 3D. Once you finish your blockout, you’ve no commitment to finishing it OR better yet you have an asset list and a decent floorplan. Wanna see more blockouts? Got one or more to share? Join the Blockout Party! Checkout more blockouts and post yours here!

tips for me for next time:

take it one (mesh) branch at a time.

With the cards, start small to big.

check x. check z. check x…

make bark mesh live.

you dont need as much branch geo as you think you do. but if it help to put it in to visualize, than do so, and remove later.

if the geo for the mesh branch is “inside” the main besh branch, it doens’t need to be there.

its easier to see.. with different colors that dont make sense

use layers. use locking.

its easier to see… without leaves. where branches are for cards
