Try to get one part perfect before moving on to the next part, youll learn more as well as keeping it nice and clean.

Theres the BMW z4 tutorial using nurbs as people in your other thread pointed out (or the Z4 tut here uses nurbs to polys then to sub D's)

hey,
i done the tut on the z4 on 3dtotal its in this section somewhere
it is a good tut but a little limited an u end up making ur own way 70% of the time but worth a try

personally i would restart the mcclaren as this will get u ready for later on in life wen u cant chose adiff car wen u r boss asks u for a ford escort an u give him a beetle

good luck though

If you are going to start completley over... I would just start by making the basic shap of the entire car.. and just get it right to start with.... very genreal then go in once you have a clean shape and do your details.

got a bit of my mesh cleaned up still looking a bit scary though and i got the basic look of how i want my spoiler to be
not like a mclarens spoiler but how my friend has his setup

the spoiler is not final there is still a lot of crap to sort out...:headbang:...

The front end is looking much better. The rear end still needs work, but Im sure you're aware of that.

Hey Acid44,

I can see a lot of progressions since your first post
I think restarting the McLaren was a good idea because, cleaning it up would probably have taken you longer :eeek2:

I think you're working quicker when you start with basic shapes to then refine afterwards. So, i would say it's one of the approaches you should use :nod:

Try to get as many reference as you can. They are very helpful when you need to model areas/sections that are unseen in blue prints :nod:

Keep in mind to keep it low when working with polygons, because you will eventually smooth the whole thing afterwards.
Try to keep it all Quads instead of Tris (where you can) and absolutely NO N-gons (this will give you unwanted result when you clean-up or smooth)

Anyway, hope this helps...
and Keep it up my friend!


Cheers,

Kevin
