I've been dabbling in 3D ever since Procreate first introduced it. I've made a whole 3D course about it and I really really love the feature. With one exception ...
After some time, you'll want new models that you can paint on. But here's the issue ...
There aren't that many 3D models available online since 3D painting is such a new feature.
Don't get me wrong. There are many 3D models available ... just not the ones that are Procreate-compatible! 🤦♀️
As I ran through the free ones and some paid ones in no time, I kind of got tired of 3D painting. Not because I was over it, but because I was over the models that I had in stock. 😓
So I decided to find a 3D artist who'd be willing to design some Procreate-compatible models that I could use.
After some time, I finally found one. And just as I was brainstorming what would be the most fun to paint in 3D, one of my students asked me if I had any Botanical and Decor 3D models.
So, here they are! And the best thing ... you can get them too! ⤵
You can find some free 3D models on the internet, but once you’ve depleted those resources, you’ll have to buy any additional models.
Normally, you can buy an individual 3D models for around $5 and up. Here you’re getting 25 models specially modelled for seamless use with the Procreate app for just a little under $2 per model!
However, the price is not the only thing standing in your way when trying to find models to paint in Procreate. Finding 3D models that work seamlessly with the app is not a piece of cake.
If the models aren’t specifically specified as 3D models for Procreate, you might have some issues using them. The UV mapping is usually not configured to be Procreate compatible, so you might face difficulties such as incomplete color fills or messy lines if you try to use any of the Procreate’s painting tools. Even if you do a stellar job painting them, they will just seem a little off when finished. And you don’t want that after spending hours painting the model.
Since these models were configured specifically for Procreate, they will work flawlessly with the app without any issues!
