yay i'm special again! :bow:
it's not very pink though

very shiny car, must have used a lot of polish to get it so shiny


oo, here's a nice idea, you should put a massive dent in it when you're done

its a good start, obviously better than me by a mile at making cars ... my crits would be is that there are alot of sharp edges, you may want to smooth then about alot more

This looks good murambi,

Try to keep the Geo even and straight. Are you smoothing this model for rendering?

you might be right there, benny :p

but i never seen someone model a car with a giant dent in the side because some idiot parked too close and fully pushed the door out banging it into your car...wouldn't you just love to give that persona dent of your own? i'm kidding of course
