To get good at creature design/sculpting you need to study anatomy

what can you study to get good at modeling mechanical, scifi, robotics modeling?
>>

Whatever you're trying to model. Are you trying to model a specific type of car? Study about that car. Doing a steam powered train? Study about the train. Learn what each part does.

This.

>>526537
To make believable machines study engineering in the sense that you start to understand the elementary physics and have an armchair understanding about why real-world artifacts are designed the way they are.
If there is a though process behind the way you construct nonsensical mechanical devices that will help lend some degree of plausibility to it which in turn will make the design more believable.

Regular engineering student here. I don't think so.Even contemporary real-world military hardware looks unrealistic as fuck these days.
Look at the massive bullshit NVG/thermal/whatnot that DEVGRU are using. Or the F35 pilots helmet.
Totally looks like something Hollywood or some game designer made up.
