African Masks-3D Modeling

So this is something new I’ve been working on for the last month or so. I’m slowly teaching myself 3D modeling using Blender in order to create and modify simple objects for use in my Poser art. Here are two masks modeled after authentic sources, textured, and set up for display. I expect these to turn up in some of my other artwork in the near future. I didn’t spend much time on texturing and lighting. The figures need to be unwrapped and made to look less polished, as if they were actually used in African religious ceremonies. I don’t want to get too caught up in perfecting a single object at this point. I’m really trying to stay focussed on the modeling part first. If you’re a 3D pro, the flaws are apparent, but for now I’m just excited to be learning some new tricks to add to the repertoire.
