Default ski, boot, and binding (hard surf. modeling practice)

Hi guys, I've decided that I'd work on my hard surface modeling skills

So, here's what i've got so far (working in Modo as of now, I'll take it to Maya soon though )

now that I think about it, I must have been crazy modeling what I was. It's about as far away from a binding as anything. After a long day of skiing (and patting myself on the back for successfully landing a 360 iron cross and a grind on the monster 7 foot rainbow rail ), I now know what the binding should look like

I've stripped down some images for refs

This would be a freestyle binding (it's very close to the one on my freestyle skiis, and that's the reference that I'm using for my modeling.


This would be a kind of race bindind. I have something similar on my GS Race skiis


I'm going for the first one, though gonna add some elements of the second one to it

not much to say atm. It looks good. The centerpeice thing needs a bit more detail when comparing to the picture. It also looks a bit flat. it needs to bulge out more.

Keep it up
