I'll be using this thread to post various 3D models I've made or am working on. I wouldn't really call myself a 3D artist, but I do a bit as a hobby. Feel free to let me know what you think about any of my pieces, how you would improve them, or whatever. All I ask is that you be respectful with your criticism.
I also have a not-so-up-to-date website where I post art from time to time. You can check that out here.
I'll start with an older piece. This is the first 3D model I spent any real amount of time on. It's quite primitive but I think it turned out okay all things considered. I wanted to make a magical girl staff, and so I did. I made this in Blender, like all of my 3D adventures. The orb in the centre is supposed to be glassy, but at the time I didn't really have much knowledge on how to render translucent materials so I opted to just leave it solid.
