After doing the indian coins.. i realised that the simplicity of the project makes it an excellent exercise for beginners..
so heres a tutorial on how to model your own Silver Dollar

Not everyone has awesome 3d modelling skills.. but there are some things that don’t require that much modelling to begin with! and with todays technology, anyone can create something that has a professional finish using free opensource tools.

here i’l show you how to model a simple 3d object that will end up looking a lot more sophisticated once your done. I’ll also show you how to put it up so others can see and appreciate your effort.

Will be using:
Blender for the 3d modelling
get it here- http://www.blender.org/

Gimp for the textures
get it here- http://www.gimp.org/

the Normal Map plugin for Gimp – https://code.google.com/p/gimp-normal…
