3D-model of Conversano

So, I am finally back home in Ålesund with my parents enjoying the relaxed life of no horse, no school and no work. To make the best out of the time here, I have decided to really dive into modeling. I got some experience last semester with modeling, but I never actually finished a horse model, as I never had time.

Now, however, I have all the time in the world! I can sit for hours in and really get to work in the 3D-space. I decided my first model was going to be a model of Conversano(one of the forefathers to the Lipizzan). I used one reference photo that was an old, drawn lineart from the side view. And I looked at many other references, especially close-ups of horse faces, muzzles and ears.

I am by no means an artist yet, my drawings are horrible(I literally can’t draw even if my life depended on it). So I don’t really understand how I manage to make a sculpture in three dimentions. I guess it will stay a mystery. But I am very pleased with the results(if we look away from the mane, it’s horrible), and I am excited to start working on the next model!

I am definitely going to try to make Baldur as well. And I am thinking of opening up for commissions. But I think I have to get back to that. I can however imagine it would be cool for “non-animators” to get a 3D-model of their horse. Maybe I can do a giveaway?

Without further adieu, let me present to you; Conversano.


Don’t forget to turn on HQ and full screen! ↓

And lastly, I’d like to ask. What do you think? Is this a kind of blog post that I should keep making and sharing with you?

  1. This is so good! 😍 And this is your first horse? Amazing!! I would really like to get a 3D model of my horse 🐴 and hope you will host a competition where we could get a chance to win a 3D model 🤩

  2. Wow that’s so cool! Is that a computer program that you hand draw? Technology never ceases to amaze me. I used to draw a lot in pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor but it’s been so many years and I am out of practice. I keep meaning to return to it but don’t have the time between writing, photographing, and my business.
