Default Begin Back Rims

Started the Back Rims.

Joopson: I have a few ideas to make the wheelchair tell a story but haven't made a decision yet. I originally was going to do an old abandoned windmill and have a second brand new modern windmill hugely towering over it. But then I figured a windmill isn't really an everyday item...darn.

arran: A hospital scene would be cool but we're not supposed to do a scene. Perhaps after the comp, i'll make a quick scene for it.

Looking good! I did an abandoned wheelchair for our game, too.

Thanks mtmckinley. Perhaps after the comp is over, you can post your wheelchair. Although, this one would be WAY TOO MANY polys for a game.

nice job perfecto - this is looking great. are you planning on having it slightly collapsed in on itself / falling apart - like you often see? just an idea.

I plan on modeling it as if it were new (in case I want to use it for a scene one day). Then I'll add wear and tear to it to make it look abandoned. I haven't decided on what kind of seat I want to model yet as it will depend on the type of wear I want.

I have several reference pics of abandoned wheelchairs so it will be just a matter of how I want the final render to look.
