Tips and tricks for organic modelling Over the last 20 years, 3D modelling has come a long way. I say 20 years because for a lot of people their awareness of 3D modelling was first sparked when they saw animated 3D creatures in films such as Jurassic Park. Modelling 3D creatures and characters is now a recognised career and spans many different sectors, including games, film, broadcast TV, web, print, advertising, marketing, medical and so on. As with most things these days, there are many ways to get any given job done, and just knowing one tool isn’t always enough. Organic 3D modelling can use subdivision surfaces, voxels, DynaMesh, retopology tools, normal maps and a whole list of other features and tools. Understanding where to use each one and for what task can be confusing until you understand what they can do for you, so read on for my collection of tips and tricks.

Human Anatomy UV Coordinates Setup for Texturing by Dylan Swan Medium Difficulty (basic prior knowledge of 3D modeling assumed) You will need your own 3D model of a person.

It is fundamentally important because you will use the same map for colour mapping, bump mapping, specular mapping, etc. and you can't change your UV map after the textures have been made because the textures rely on the position of the UV map.
