Well, it's been a long time since my last journal entry, I just wanted to show everyone what I've been up to and why I haven't been uploading as much as I could.

My biggest creative passion is 3D modeling, but now that I'm migrating towards Linux and open source software, I was unable to keep using 3DS Max. I wanted to get into Blender since a couple of years back, but I just found it too difficult. Even with online tutorials, I just couldn't get pass that awful first impression. That all changed a month ago, when I started a professional Blender course on a new design school here in Buenos Aires, called Innatus. This course was the first Blender course offered in Argentina, it was what I was waiting for all these years.

Already after the first class, I was able to do what I had found so hard before, and now, after attending just 2 classes, I'm more than comfortable with Blender, and I'm using it a lot at home and at work (both on Windows and Linux respectively). While there are some things on the modeling side that I still have to learn how to do, I find it easier to use than 3DS for some things, it gives far more professional results faster with materials and lights, and it renders and runs much faster.

It'll probably be a while before I finish my first mesh, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peak at it, it's an original Trek bridge design from the late 23rd Century (no ship class or name chosen yet, feel free to give me ideas!):

Yes, I had your same issue.  I found Blender to be impenetrable.  But, this looks like amazing work!  I love the blend of old and new Trek styles.  It does look a bit sterile, but I'm guessing that's because it is empty and none of the screens are textured.  

By the way, whatever happened to that Kumari update that you had on Scifi-meshes?  Will that come back?

Thanks! Yeah, I'm working on the screen textures, I hope it looks better once they're finished.

That version of the Kumari is pretty much dead as it was done in 3DS Max. Once I have some more experience with Blender, I'll probably start version 3.0. :D

Well, that is exciting!  I look forward to it.

It looks like you are doing well with Blender. I look forward to whatever you want to share with us as your skills with the software improve. :thumbsup:
