Default Modelling:Victorian Sofa?

Hi,

I have just taken up project of building a little castle and the interior includes modeling a victorian sofa with wooden carvings and stuff like that. (example pic attached)

I was just wondering how to get started with it.

Should I use the Birail tool for the backrest of the sofa and a cube for the seat and then attach lofted/planar surfaces (for the carving at the bottom and top) or is there another way I could do it?

Thanks,
~nspiratn.

How do I get the thickness to the backrest if I do go for the nurbs surface though?

Just make the nurbs cuvres to get the shape than once you turn it into polys, extrude the faces to make it wider...

Well, this is how it turned out slightly modified

I was wondering, how does the displacement map thing work? I want to put some carvings in to the wood in places.


thanks,

you should use bump map... rather than displacement for the carvings....
in the bump channel assign the file... and as kurt said...add some thinkness by extruding it...comin along nicely...
