Sketchup 3D Art… Test 1 – Gundam

Feet & Lower Leg


Okay, after bd kindly introduced me to Google Sketchup, I’ve been playing around with it since earlier this week. It is quite simple and easy to learn. However, I just know how to manipulate the basics for the time being. I’ll try to make a very simple 3D art of a certain Gundam I’ve been designing for a while…. it won’t have amazing detail as I’m only trying this thing out for now plus to not over-do it. XP

The legs is about halfway done while the foot needs to be configured badly. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make this look nice in the end though. Haha.

EDIT: Just did a bit of a quick job just now. Can’t really sleep yet. >.<

Hips & Ball Joint!

Nothing amazing, just did this part rather quickly… the legs are not entirely done yet though. Still needs a number of adjustments. ^^;

PS: I noticed my scaling was quite off… the Gundam will be larger than I designed but will be closer to standard heights… will most likely re-size after everything is done. XP

    @moe: Head will be last step. Started from the legs to make sure I can hopefully scale the height properly. XD The head will be quite hard though…

    @chubbs: Maybe. ^^;

    Remember. Make your objects (thighs, hips) into components so the updating process is simplified (right-click, select Make Component”).

      Yeah, thanks. I just tried that out earlier today after reading about it in the “book” you gave me. ^^

      Still a lot’a work for this one, especially certain parts… >_>
