Yes, these days, even if you’re relatively computer-illiterate, if your good enough to use WordPress and Windows easily, you can make professional-looking 3D art. And it doesn’t necessarily even cost any money. You can find lots of free content on various sites like ShareCG.com. The program I use is even free.
The key is “presets”. Presets allow you to practically click a character into a scene, click a building into the scene, then click the character into place, place a whole light set (just like in a photography studio but using your mouse instead of lugging equipment around) with just one click, and clicking in any props you may want, such as a car or helicopter, then clicking the “make art” (“render” it is technically called) button which tells the computer to make the final image.
I sell certain kinds of presets. Mainly poses, the most recent of which you can find here. So without knowing anything except how to click on stuff, you can put your character into a pose like below with one double-click. I hope to get more people doing 3D art because really, if you suck at drawing but still want to “art” somehow, 3D could be your answer.
For more information, you can see this cheesy little demo I made while ago: http://takoyakida.webs.com/videos/RealityDemo.htm
So, if you want to make great 3D art but don’t want to get too into the technical side of things, just get a bunch of presets, whether from a free site like ShareCG.com, or from my publisher Daz 3D, or any another online marketplace.
Here’s to making your vision a reality.
