Great Model Tickle..

The middle section for me is too high, as you said, its the only thing I would pick up as being off, but saying that you have yet to add the strings and bits...

Good Work. Nice clean modeleing.. on both the body of the cello and the head!

I'd like to see the textures for this as well.

thanks R@nSiD I'm taking my time over edgeloops to make the mesh flow around the model. The height according to my reference photos is correct, but I think if anything is out it'll be more prominent soon

clean is what I'm after so thanks mayafreak3 your model is far more realistic though!

Finally got round to having some time to play with this. I've added in the string pegs and rasied the flat area of the body. Next step will be the neck area followed by the base and the strings.

cheers jsprogg, metallicjet66 and magicsy, the encouragement is much appreciated

I've added a more shaped neck in today and also have been playing with polys around the back of the head to get an indented look

p.s, I think the images have gone up - my host has gone a bit screwy just now (as usual)

thanks THX1138 and Fallenswordsman, your comments are greatly appreciated

Another update, I've properly modelled the bottom of the head and have got round to attaching it to the neck.
Here are a couple of wire views (mad lines but it *should* all be quaded).

slow progress here but I've got another part semi-finished.
Here's the tailpiece at the bottom of the cello. It still needs the underside bits adding (called closures aparently) and the bottom end finishing but I'll get there

thanks magicsy
I need to find some time to get the modelling finished and start on the textures though.

Modelling Todo: Closures, spike and screw bits at the bottom, add an extra indent on the body and tidy up, cut the holes in the body out, join the bow together, add the strings, add the horsehair on the bow.

then onto texturing :attn:

This is really, really nice t1ck. Love the way it's coming along and can't wait to see it joined together and textured.
