ModelMaps Are Your Solution To Stop Mindlessly Following 3D Tutorials
When following a tutorial, it often feels mindless. Following steps without thinking and leaving you wondering whether or not you actually learned anything. And when attempting to complete a project without any guidance, you're left with a feeling of confusion about the steps needed to achieve a finished and polished result.

Featuring 11 high-resolution 3D models, turnaround videos, and reference images for each step of the project. Paired with narrated video tutorials to fill in any gaps.

1. Is this product beginner-friendly?
Absolutely! However, you'll get the most out of this product if you are more familiar with the software of your choice. This will allow you to attempt following ModelMaps without referencing the provided narrated, real-time video tutorials on the first attempt. However, the videos are there to help guide you when you feel stuck.
2. Is this a tutorial?
ModelMaps are more than a tutorial. They are the best chance for you to grow as an artist while creating beautiful artwork.
They achieve this by giving you an opportunity to problem solve on your own first before turning to the narrated, real-time video tutorials. The video section for each step is there to provide you guidance when you are unsure of how to move forward. They will address varying tools, concepts, and the biggest problems you will face during that step of creation.
3. Why should I try it on my own first without watching the video tutorials?
ModelMaps bridge the gap between tutorial and confident independence. By giving yourself the opportunity to problem solve on your own first, before looking up the answer, you give yourself the largest opportunity for growth.
4. Do I need specific software to follow along with ModelMaps?
No, use whatever tool you are most comfortable with. ZBrush is used in this product's tutorials, however, these videos focus less on tools and more on creating visual forms and aesthetics. Please keep in mind that some tools and tips may not translate to other software, but aesthetics and fundamentals will be applicable no matter what tools you are using.
5. How long are the narrated tutorials?
2 Hours and 42 Minutes in total, combined length.
6. What software will these work in?
The provided FBX and OBJ files will work with nearly any 3D software, while the ZTL files are specific to ZBrush.
