Default Hey Everyone!

I'd just like to say hello, I just signed up to this site today and plan to be around quite a bit. If anyone has any suggestions for someone trying to learn how to patch model with NURBS I'd love to hear them. Specifically, I'm just starting modelling and am attempting to make a yellow rubber duck. I made the body from a sphere and a head from a sphere and am now trying to connect them with a neck and am having trouble trying to get tangency. I feel I am severely lacking basic modelling techniques and would love any advice or links so I can better my skills. Hope to hear from anyone and everyone soon!

If you want to learn patching fast.. make a car. I swear dude... it will be worth it if you finish.. too bad you may throw your computer out the window out of frustration before then.

You could always use the "search" feature as that's what it's there for. You'll find plenty of car-realted threads in the WIP, NURBS, and Battle forums. Also check the tutorial database. Do a search for "subaru" to get started.
