I am sort of a newbie (not entirely) and I am wanting to create a dragonfly. I am having a terrible time getting started. I was going to start with the head. It is rather spherical in shape, so should I use a sphere or should I begin with a cube and just round it out. I am not interested in making it ultra-realistic but only somewhat realistic. I just need some help getting started. Does anyone have a recommendation or a dragonfly tutorial they are familiar with. Any help would be appriciated.
The first pic shows one of my earliest designs, while the second pic shows one of my latest. As you can see, I kinda started off with everything square and simple, and then begun adding details, one by one, until I got to the model shown in second picture.
I actually modelled the main body from a basic box (it’s a modelling method, I think), and extruded and stuff until I got the the desired shape. Unfortunately I kinda subdivided it too much, and now I have too many faces, overall
