Weekly Drills Weekly Drills 030 - #guitar by Andrew McDonald a month ago 3 min read This week we want you to create a guitar asset that could be used as a prop in a game, film or digital render, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #guitar.This is your chance to build a guitar for your portfolio to show off your modeling, texturing and lighting skills. There are plenty of different guitars out there to choose from with three main types of acoustic guitars: the classical guitar, the steel-string and the archtop. Then of course there are some pretty epic looking electric guitars too to celebrate your inner rock legend. We want you to really pay attention to the finer details of the guitar and push the realism as far as you can with your renders.To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack.
