Question UP all night

i have been up all night kinda tweaking this car design... i am making it with polys... i kno i kno... nurbs are fun and easy... but i am dumb... so anyway,,, i have a few problems with my car and was wonderin g how to fix them... this is my first attempt at it... i think its turning out ok... i dont have a background image for it or anything...


ok... what i need help with is the cab... i dont know how to make it... also i need mucho help with the little details... like the lights and the small lines for where the hood is... and yeah... i just need lots of help... any thing you guys (or girls) could say to help me out or point me in the right direction would be most helpful...


Thanx! :bgreen: :spam3:

right mate... I will be totally honest here as it will help you no end!

the wheel arch - and the whole car looks like it has a "smooth added, like you would on an organic material....

maybe try nubs around the arch?

or if not ..get nicer shpes with boolens?

the back area from this angle does look quite ok...

have you seen mike mckinleys poly car tut on his site? It may help if you prefer sticking to polys... but dont think for one minute that you have wasted time by my comments as it is all practise mate!!!

well done
