3D Car Modeling - Blocking in Your Models

Tutorial / 04 September 2021

After watching this tutorial, you will learn how to block out your own 3D car models. This is a new series where I will be covering vehicle modeling from beginning to end. This video focuses specifically on key tips and workflows for blocking out your car exteriors like planar modeling, modeling the vehicle in sections, and how to balance form and topology  The series will include a combination of high level concepts, workflows, and step by step techniques and is targeted for beginner to advanced skill level in 3d modeling. 

Youtube Milestone: 5k Subscribers!

News / 09 August 2021

Just hit 5k subscribers on my YouTube Channel! Thanks to everyone who supports my channel 'On Mars 3D'. This took me about of year of uploading weekly to hit this milestone. 

A big motivating factor has been people reaching out to me from all over the world to learn 3D Modeling, Rendering, and Art. I'm happy to be part of their 3D Art journey!
