I'm a big fan of the Elder Scrolls Universe, so much so that I made a homebrew wargame of it to play with my friends.
I have zero professional background in 3d modelling, or even formal art in general, not do I consider myself a particularly artistic person. However, while I accept that pretty much anyone could do what I'm doing but faster and better, no one is so I'm doing it myself.
My process is slow, tedious, and probably follows all the worst practices, but when I complete a model I'll post it up here anyway just in case someone, like me, wanted to find something like it but couldn't find it. I design all my models in parts to save time. That way, if I screw up getting the supports off a piece of a model, or my printer messes up 90% of the way through, I've only wasted 30 minutes instead of 2 hours. Similarly, since these are all in a state of work in progress, if I update for example the arms on a model, I only have to print updates to 2 parts rather than replacing the whole kit and caboodle.
In spite of how slow I am, this is a project I am still actively working on when I have time. Therefore, even if I don't post anything for a month and a half, I'm still working on the next model, honest! Feel free to follow this page to get updates when I do eventually post a new model.
I've put together a guide on my process from beginning to end on how I create my models, compiling a lot of information from a lot of different sources. It is written with the absolute beginner in mind, and is largely unedited, so it may be a bit of a bear to read through.
