This event is part of the January 2018 Class, "Getting Started with 3D Modeling & Blender"

There’s still much more to learn about modeling with Blender! Remember, it’s a craft. Time + practice is the only way to develop your modeling skills. In today's stream we'll discuss the journey of becoming a skilled modeler as well as the potential for turning it into a career.

As the final Live Event for the class, I’m going to sift through homework submissions to commend my favorites and offer critiques!

    When the stream didn't end, it reminded me of the ending of a particular 80's movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRJ38y4Jn6k

    Oh I see - I've never used a hybrid with Blender myself. I believe jlampel has a surface laptop. Maybe post a thread in the community forums about the question to see what Lampel and others have to say about it. Sorry I don't have experience to offer advice

  • Paul Haynes

    Something like a self-contained digital display with computing power and (at least) USB storage capacity?

  • Paul Haynes

    theluthier ... I saw that ... I meant some type of laptop or hybrid ... a tablet requires a computer to go with it and I don't have a good portable laptop for modelling.

  • Largecrew
    Kent Trammell

    Those tablets are portable and inexpensive enough, and they'll work great for sculpting and/or mesh modeling

  • Paul Haynes

    theluthier ... yes, some tablet ... Surface? Wacom? Anything I can take on the road and not miss a day of modelling.
