4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for the intermediate, 28 Dec 2012

This review is from: Build Your Own Rocket Bike: Sci-Fi Modeling in Blender (Kindle Edition)
This is a very good informative read. I would say that you'd be lucky if you did create your own rocket bike at the end, but this book certainly gets you started.

The real value of this book is the tips and tricks given in the sections prior to the step-by-step guide. There are lots of useful snippets of information from somebody that you can tell has done a lot of modelling. I found the tone and pace of the book to be just right for these sections. You can try the concepts out and get a real insight in to the "right" way to model. I know some may have different styles. In fact, the author often mentions that it's his way of doing things and there are other approaches. But some useful guidance on polygon count is a good example of how all designers should approach their 3d creations.

Ultimately this is a book, and I think the task of actually explaining a complex model like a rocket bike was never going to be easy. The section on how to put it all together doesn't really work for me, and I ended up just reading it and agreeing with the steps. You'd probably need a very lengthy video to really do justice to such a project.

But that shouldn't stop those with an appetite for 3d modelling from purchasing this book. It's real value for money and solidifies what might take you a long time to weed out of the internet. It certainly kept me busy for many hours.

This review is from: Build Your Own Rocket Bike: Sci-Fi Modeling in Blender (Kindle Edition)
This book is exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't include shaders, lightning neither animation, only modelling. It's really extensive in its area and everything is explained carefully.

If you want to learn modelling with Blender this is your book.
