I followed a tutorial to make a fire ring/space explosion thing. I think I searched for a "supernova explosion" effect. If memory doesn't fail me, it was done on Blender. I was 15 or 16 years old, and it's been 15 years since. I didn't do anything else 3D related until about one year and a half ago.
>>671283Imported and attempted to rig an MMD model in Blender for Garry's Mod.Couldn't figure it out, and didn't touch 3D for years after.
>>671285PS. I searched a bit, and I can't be sure whether this is the tutorial I followed, but the result looked very much like it. https://web.archive.org/web/20050305055244/http://www.elysiun.com/tutorials.php?id=5
>>671283I think it was a vase or something in 2006. Just learning how extrusions worked.Obviously I don't have an image of it.
Tried to make a city for a class project. I had to make a title sequence and I picked Ghost in the Shell (this was years before the movie). I used ghosttown in 3DS Max, but I had so little experience rendering and lighting, and the render took so much time, I had to compensate by post processing the shit out of the render in AE.I with I still had the result somewhere
>>671283I started 3D in the Amiga days, so 100% a chrome and/or glass sphere on a checkerboard plane.
>>671378Was this actually rendered on an Amiga?... If it was I assume it just finished rendering last week, correct?
>>671378you didn't make this fag
>>671381Of course not. This was created by Turner Whitted in 1980 as proof-of-concept for recursive ray tracing. Rendered on a monstrous DEC PDP-1.The same on a stock Amiga 2000 would take you an hour or so and significantly less with some CPU accelerator installed.
>>671383In no shape or form did I write that, kid. This particular 35 mm print was done by Turner Whitted in 1980.
>>671283A Dragon made in 3d Studio 4 for DOS in 1996.The 1.7 disk with the original image is lost forever, but the model was strikingly similar to pic related. Scales were made with bump maps, and were green. It was impressive for the time.
I think it was like a wine goblet. It was one of the very first ones I remember at least.
Sketchup, had a school project but I liked making comfy houses in it. With a pool and a loft, lots of lame stuff.
>>671283First thing I did, I think around 2,5 years ago
>>671283An extremely basic house model. Not really proud of that.
I made a flame sword in Anim8or when I was 14.
>>671283first time seeing this since i made it, looks much better than i thought it would honestly
>>671440I actually really like it
I know, I know. I'm about to jump into my first actual original thing tomorrow.
This isn't the doughnut thread anon.Guru doughnuts don't really count. You didn't "make" that, you just followed a tutorial. Then you posted it outside the containment thread for (You)'s.So here's your (You) >>671530
>>671540To be fair, OP is asking for the "first thing", not the "first original thing" made in a 3D program. That includes something done by following a tutorial.
>>671283I had this homework of writing an essay about a book and illustrate it in high school. I rendered a still image of a boat near the coast where there was a beacon.Too bad I didn't kept the files. At the same time, with no prior experience and following a tutorial of the basics of the software package it was hell and I wanted it all gone.
>>671283I made a bowl., and then a mug, a plate... yellow submarine. It was good enough for learning basic controls
>>671283obv don't have the pic, but the first thing I did was a nuclear reactor in blender about 3 years ago
my theme of first model somewhat reflects the path of my carreer lol
The very very first thing i made in 3d editor is atom
>>671283some rotating cube thing that lagged in the viewport because it was 2001
>>671283The very first thing I made was a greek pantheon in a blender course I paid for like 7 years ago. I remember being proud of it, I even printed it on paper (and lost it a few days after). Funnily enough, the professor teached us with a version of blender that was already ancient during that time and recommended us to not use the latest version. I did find that last version confusing and ended up dropping 3d modelling all together when I didnt find the version I had during the classes. It took me 4-5 years to pick up 3d modelling again and it was thanks to an awesome judy hopps rig for blender which pushed me to learn a LOT more 3d stuff and blender.
>>671283A torso, and then a dick. Then a face, sucking dick
>>671755Whats your patron?
>>671637>not saving all your work ever >>671377 is from 6 years ago
A teenager mind-controlling two women and a girl his age into sucking his dick. He was reclining on the two women and the girl was doing the sucking. In poser 4 or something.I got into problems with the police for it. If you read it fuck you. I am not a paedophile.
>>671792>I got into problems with the police for it.lol, how old were you at the time?
>>671798Mentally or physically? Cuz I get the feeling that distinction is why he got in trouble with the police.
>>671798The render? 15. I got into problem with the police when I was 21. They tried to frame my father for paedophilia: but the render was mine, and I was underage at the time.Still what a fucking bunch of retarded faggot. My Daz3D career is built on the back of those retards. Go fuck yourself you fucking police retards. Now I'm doing 3D because you fucking fucked my ass. Real productive you fucking moron. I'm sure you liked taking my DNA and putting me in jail. I'm sure it's real productive now I'm flooding the market. You fucking RETARDS.
This thread was going nicely, but now it's derailed...as expected.
>>671803>Daz3d CareerHooo lawdy that's a good laugh.Honestly you sound like a huge faggot.>The police are retards reeeeeeeeeeee
My first thing was one of those bent-edge hats, like the one the TF2 sniper wears, but that was really just from following a tutorial and subsurfacing the fuck out of an extruded cylinderI made my first non tutorial thing today, actually. Alpha maps are cool.
>>672543why did you render this garbage in 1080p?
>>672546default size I guess
>>671283Besides simple shapes? I made a replica of a hallway from Quake when it was a new game, and modeled a Scrag in said hallway. All in TrueSpace2, which was CSG, so no poly/vert modeling. It was not fun, but it taught me enough to go on to Quake mapping and eventually work my way back to enviro with Maya.
soda can, wasn't this the first one for everybody?
>>671283First THING? Was a material for someone else's model that I got from a free 3d model site.No, scratch that... A long, long time ago I tried to make a custom model for Warcraft 3, but couldn't figure out how anything worked. I had all kinds of dreams about what I was going to add for the shitty custom maps I was going to make, but my 12 year old brain had no idea how to even import a doodad's model into the game; nevermind, rigging and animating my own characters. I didn't try 3d again until was I nearly twenty.
I was really into arcitechture when i was young so when my sister came home from school and downloaded sketchup to do homework I was really excited about it. I made a shitty contemporary looking house with a balcony. My real intoduction to sketchup happened in my junior year of highschool and one of the first assignments was to create any object just to be familiarized with the program and I modeled my hobby knife
>>671283Space ship over water in 2002. I was very disappointed with my own ability as a kid, so I stopped. Took up MMD more than ten years later, have been enjoying it.
first thing I made, about 8 months ago
>>673934>>671540guess I missed the memo on donuts not counting, whoops, here's my first """"original"""" render
>>673829>I modeled my hobby knifeAsk me how I know that you didn't get laid in highschool.
>>673978Did I fall into some stereotype I don't know about
>>673988Does this bring back memories?
>>673989When I read hobby knife, I thought of:A. An X-Acto Knife or similar; i.e. a knife generally used for hobbiesand then I thought ofB: A knife made as part of a hobby; i.e. forging. maybe a bit closer to the TAPOUT CARGO SHORTS guy, except he's actually doing something and isn't just retarded
>>673989>>673991Yeah i meant X-Acto knife but that's a brand. Not like i had a chance to look like that anyway, im asian huehue
>>673993Ah if you just made a crafts knife thats fine no stigma with that, why did you make one tho.
>>674004It was assignment to create an object and I was interested in the knurling
>>671487That ceiling is fucking LOW nigga
A grenade. i thought that the body (a sphere) would be a pretty simple shape to start with.I was wrong.
>>671283a dragon, looked good but never got to the wings
>>671283a cube, obviouslyI jumped on Blender practically blind
this is the earliest thing that I have
>>671487you didnt make that. you downloaded a bunch of meshes (maybe you even paid for them like an r word), and then assembled them together
>>674504Liar. We all know the cube is already made for you in Blender when you first run it.
>>677451The first thing you do when you launch blender is delete the default cube to make space for a cube.
>>671440saved for inspo
A horrible gladius in 3ds max 2011
Depends on your definition of first thing and 3d program. I started out making maps in the source engine when I was 13 or 14. The first map I made which I never textured was a really stupid giant paintball arena that never actually got any cover placed but you could escape the arena and go into the stands and snipe people from very disproportionate seats. After that I probably followed two Maya or 3ds max tutorials but never actually got anywhere, I think one was from those tornado twin fucks that made those unity tutorials and now making the Bible game. I also sculpted some retarded "head" from some cool web app from 2013. The first project I ever finished was the blender guru doughnut shit. Honestly I'm a pathetic excuse for a modeler, just a game programmer, and only visit this board because it's the default board that opens when I use clover.
>>671283Would have been around '85 when I was in college. First would have been a simple scene with a bunch of primitives, probably on a checker board plane. First model would have been a very crude human head. We only did 3D for a single week of our computer graphics class. We also did 2D animation on some old Icon computers.Then a few years later I had this software for my Atari ST that let you set chrome balls inside a cube and assign images to all the sides of the cube. Never did any 3D professionally until about 2006 when I was hired by a studio as an art monkey. Given a week's training on Maya and then set to task making 3D props for use in animations. Days spent doing things like cranking our shelves, chairs, tables, mugs, cups, glasses, bottles, etc. etc. Nothing complex just simple models so that the real modellers could concentrate on more complex things. Very boring job. Studio when tits up before even producing the pilot episode for the series they were making. The first thing I made with it was an oil drum, crate, pallet, and a bunch of glass coke styled bottles.Then didn't do any 3D until 2012 when I started using Daz Studio and Hexagon. That's when I really got into 3D and started to really enjoy making models. Amazing how much more fun it is when you're modelling the stuff you want to make instead of making dull props for someone else. Started getting more software making more complex stuff, having fun.Pic is the oldest render I made on that Atari ST.
>>679027Also, it took my Atari an hour to make that render. You could animate the balls too, up to 24 frames (which would take an entire day to render). People used to stack the balls together to make figures and have them do things like bounce a ball or play catch.
>>671283Probably around 1998, got a burnt cd with 3D Studio Max R3 from a friend. Built this muscular human arm out of all primitives, intersecting scaled spheres and capsules and went "ok now how do I fuse these into a smooth continuous surface?".Nowdays I sometimes build things like that, focusing all on shape and volume combining all the crap into one mesh and just retopologize the resulting surface into something useful, I like to think I was ahead of my time.
>>679058>"ok now how do I fuse these into a smooth continuous surface?"This is what the MetaReyes plugin was for back in the day. Build your object with metashapes, press button, get continuous mesh, rig with biped & physiqueTo be honest, max was not very good at cleanly deforming continuous mesh at the time, animating characters in Softimage or then new Maya was so much better.
>>679091Lol that takes me back to modeling a crude vagina with Raydream Studio’s shitty meatballs. Then proceeded to whack it to my render. Good times.
>>679193To be fair Raydream was entry/hobbyist level stuff. That plugin alone was probably more expensive.
>>671283a low poly cow
>>679198Yeah I know, I was like 14 and Raydream Studio is the only 3d software I ever actually legitimately purchased, at bestbuy no less lol.
A bunch of planes and toruses in Moray.
>>679233how udderly uddorable
>2009>14 years old>didnt know shit about drawing, or 3d modeling>pirate 3ds max because I saw some car animation or something on Youtube that I thought looked cool that was made with it>make this as literally the first thing after watching some beginner tutorial>actually took me a fuckload of time (for what it is) because I had to pause my work every 2mins to google how to do something because I didnt know shit>remember actually being sorta proud of what Ive made (especially the custom made mug that is complete shit)>didnt even know how to change the render resolution so all the renders are the default resolutionand so it began
>>679973Heres a close up of said mug
>>679974the mug has a fucking face
>>680016Where ? I dont see it
>>680024Yeah I see it too, it's like an embryo face, you gotta squint
>>680024>>680025>>680028>>680031Well goddamn, I never noticed that in the 10 years I had that image.
I had no idea how to model or rig so I just used spooky skeletals as my characters. This is one of my first renders in 3DS Max when I was 12 years old.
>>671440Amazing style. It feels like I'm waiting for a 90s game to load up or am watching an N64 cut scene. :)
a teapot.it was a class assignment.
>>680404<a teapot>Click and drag> donewhat a class assignment
>>680466Done my ass.I have to make the teapot from scratch, 5 times, or my teacher would blast me for it.
>>680499>I have to make the teapot from scratch, 5 times>5 timesWas it a punishment for using the built-in primitive? lol
>>680502not really, it's just more productive to start over than to fix the old mistake.I would get an F for that if I use the pre-made tea pot
>>671283A kingdom hearts OC. I don't have the files but the model itself is still uploaded to a game I modded.
Fucking low poly elephant
>>682817In what age is that low poly?
>>671283tAmenGonna go drink into a coma
>>671487Things like that are a better use of time, unsure about the sat gun though
Three differently surfaced spheres on a checkerboard, rendered in my own raytracer. 30 something years ago.
>>682905ever finished it?
>>671283A wire frame van in a 3D engine I made in QBasic eons ago. I was going to make a video game, but later I found I could only have like 128 or so lines drawn at once and never got past that part.
A donut, plate and a coffee mug following blenderguru's beginner tutorial.
>>671283A lumpy sphere.
I THINK it was a lightbulb from a 3DS Max 9 tutorial. Damn, that was a long loooong time ago.
>>671283We had to make this regular 6 sided die in high school computer science class. It was so fucking tedious. I fucking hated it. But here I am doing it as a living today
>>671283I can't post it in a sfw board
I did the eggplant tutorial with Anim8orFun times
https://warosu.org/tg/thread/S31541682#p31541920OP and first post
I made this last night. First time I've ever tried sculpting or whatever it's called. I mostly paint and draw. I had more fun doing this than any picture of made in the last 6 months.
i have started learning Blender 2 days ago, watched some low poly tutorials and this is my first own model that I designed on paper
>>686976Needs more Loomis.
>>671738I love the horrible topo on the head, and the intricate anatomy on the body. Granted you could have just slapped your own head on someone else's model, but I'll maintain you spent so much effort on the body you didn't give a shit about the head.
>>671283hairy balls with 3DsMax at my first lesson. Teacher was impresed that i was the only one doing shit in the program while other were just looking at him and pretend they listen to him
>>691042what's with the weird stai- oh god damnit
>>671283Fuck if I remember, its been 10 years. But I remember some of the first things I've made were crystals and beer bottles. The crystals were for a dark cave and glowed to provide light. >>671440You made everything in this image? And it was the first thing you made? I smell bullshit laddo. But impressive if true. >>679973Where are you now Anon?
I used Anim8tor to make icosphere textured with the SA2B case.Made it following a tutorial about making Blitz Sonic Stages.
>>671283I made a stick figure on a motorcycle and animated it when I was a kid in anim8tor. My teacher back then showed us how to use the software and let us loose, that’s how I got addicted to animation.
I followed some course where you model a trash bin, a backpack, a radio and some human model. I did the first two, so I guess a trash bin was my first one. But FIRST first was some shitty bed made with boxes, just to learn the controls.
>>671283unfinished sink because I was following a tutorial in a paper book and the fag who wrote this skipped some steps so I got frustrated.
>>671540I may be wrong, but I think the plate is made on their own inbetween parts of the tutorial.
>>680016It looks like the "I like turtles" zombie kid
>>696455>the plot thickens
>>673936>assdeaddicks vaporwave garbo
>>692909Yeah I did, although I had no shading understanding and most of the materials are just completely without any rhyme or reason that just happen to look sort of nice and the topology/modeling is basically a complete mess. I did this after I discovered blender and watched a lot of tutorials and this was the first attempt at making something complete.
>>671283I imported a starfox krystal model into milkshape, rigged it, and animated a baywatch walk cycle.
>>696984Did you jerk off to it afterwards? I probably would, as a master cumbrain.
>>696989it lacked any fur rendering sadly
>>671530yea well fuck you mine is better
A low poly isometric oasis
>>698745That's not isometric.
>>698746Well at least it was supposed, what's wrong with it ? That's the only thing I've ever done in Blender but it was really fun.
https://youtu.be/hkHBhhCQIBoThere's an asexual existential fufillment like no other I attain from create anime girl braps.
>>698750No idea what qualifies a scene as isometric.
>>698750Nothing wrong with it, it's just that it has too much perspective to be isometric. If you render the same scene in ortho you have an isometric.>>698768From Wikipedia (two different articles):"Isometric projection [...] is an axonometric projection in which the three coordinate axes appear equally foreshortened and the angle between any two of them is 120 degrees.""Despite the name, isometric computer graphics are not necessarily truly isometric—i.e., the x, y, and z axes are not necessarily oriented 120° to each other. Instead, a variety of angles occur; some form of parallel projection, such as dimetric projection with a 2:1 pixel ratio, is the most common."
>>698776Oh okay I get it, thanks for the explanation.
>>698776So my kitchen fraction qualifies since it's in ortho and the angle? 45 degree camera I think
I tried to make a rhino man in Maya, not sure how it came out but still haven't continued with it until I learn more.
>>671283with a tutorial, a park benchon my own, a vintage camcorder like pic related
>>686852looks like, a butte plug haha
>start blender for the first time>accidentally delete the god damn cube>reinstall the program
>>698821eupharrow that you?
A glass of wine with XSI
>>698910No but flattered if you think its even half way decent, not a furry either despite what I made (was thinking of like rocksteady from tmnt or the rhino dudes from beyond good and evil)
My room. I wonder how it would look textured.
>>698986get some posters
>>698920I did that in Max 4.0. Lot all my shit to a harddrive crash tho.
>>671283can't remember...probably some primitives on a checkerboard floor, back in the dark ages
>>671283this awful thing. i've deleted it since to make space on my hard drive
>>686852Holy fuck I remember doing this shitty ass thing too.This was about 15 years ago, fuck. brings me back.
>>671283This one, back in the day when Blender used to have that default blue background. Also made my first animation with this (camera flying between two of those colums).
I made a butt out of 2 spheres and made it poop
>>671283This.I made it yesterday, and I'm kind of proud of it.I got to the end of the Blender 2.8 Tutorial series I was watching. Are there any others I could watch? He never even got to Animating anything.
>>703772Uninstall blender and download proper software first
>>671283I was really young and I don't remember. I think I was trying to make a house.Ironically, the first thing I made in 3d was in google sketchup for a school project and it was also a house. We got a good grade because we were the only group who turned in a project with 3d.
>>680314This makes me feel something. Just can't put my finger on it.
>>703772You got to the end of a blender tutorial series and this was all you could make? I can't even get it to look that bad.
First thing I made after finishing the donut and anvil tutorials.
