I’m making a post about this because everyone I’ve told about the magic of google sketchup have never heard of it SO HERE I GOOOO—
You can pretty much look up anything. Yeah anything. Mostly anything. Especially if you have trouble drawing cars, weapons, BUILDINGs, WHATEVER. Download google Sketchup HERE.
Say I wanted a car reference. Like this:
Yes that car.
Look up the car model in Google 3D warehouse.
You can find a variety of models posted by different people for download. Some are downloadable, some are not but you’re likely to find something similar.
Open it in Sketchup and you can literally see it from any angle or take screencaps for reference.
I typed in New York City and not only did I get buildings that actually exist, some you can actually go inside of PLUS models of different taxis from different time periods, trains, cop cars, and other municipal crap. it’s great for rendering weapons if you don’t know how to draw a gun or if you just need a reference for a specific gun/tank/vehicle/building. Hell there are half a dozen TARDIS models from different years.
SO GO CHECK IT OUT. Everyone I’ve shown this to have had their minds blown and it’s free.
