What you'll learn

Throughout these lessons, we will dig into powerful techniques for creating a compelling 3D model of a conceptual pair of casual footwear. The subtleties of creating footwear in 3D can be challenging to capture realistically. In this tutorial, we'll cover the core aspects of proportion and construction details to help sell the concept. By the end of this tutorial, you'll be comfortable converting 2D concepts into lifelike 3D models suitable for presentations to clients, renderings for advertising, or even 3D printing for technical evaluation. Software required: Blender 2.72, KeyShot.
