    This is amazing! Charina and I took 3d modelling class in College and it’s not an easy craft, I must tell. Not easy but once you get the hang of it you’ll love it. We used Blender 3D which is open source and it pretty much gives you all the functionalities you’ll need. It seems because of this I will be opening Blender again to do some modeling! Thanks! :)
