3D to make 2D (for shadows and better perspective)

by ficolas / October 14, 2013 6:33 AM PDT

I need some software to make 3D models, texture them, and add shadows, so I can turn that to 2D and it looks more realistic.

Please tell me one, and if its easy to use, better

Tell a little more.

Are you currently enrolled in any graphic coursework? What have you used in the past?

And there is nothing easy. That is, every title I've used over the years takes about a year to be proficient. If you are like me you find folk are unwilling to invest the time.
