thought i might give this a go
i was looking around my room for something that could be banged up and saw all my silver medals...and the odd one gold medal
then i thought you can't really do much with a medal other than play with the fabric
but instead i decided i will make a trophy instead
started with making two profile curves and revolving them
they ended up giving me over 10000 triangles when i revolved them and all the edges when selected were highlighted as if they were border edges (but of course they weren't)... strange...
so i revolved again but this time with the output geometry as nurbs, then i just converted nurbs to polys
using this as my reference
any idea on how i would do the fancy handles and bits around the body?
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
