is there a way to make cresses in objects like the cresses on this ship
If the model does not need to be too detailed, it’s better to fake it with a bump map material (more technically a normal map)
Otherwise, you’ll just have to model them by hand.
is there any good bump map tut becuase i have never used them
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing for my helicopter.
there was a good UV tute posted just recently on BlenderNation.
thanks that is really helpful
I think the modeling technique you might be interested in is discussed in issue #8 of BlenderArt magazine. The issue is devoted to car modeling, but at least one article describes creating mating body panels - not to unlike what you are trying to achieve.
Best of Luck!
