I just finished this model and wanted to share. I’m still getting the hang of the modeling aspect. Kept working on various things and they weren’t turning out very well. Then someone gave me an interesting piece of advice. They said, choose something that your intimately familiar with. Something that you know every in and out, every nook and cranny. Scratches and all. I looked around my desk and found my trusty Garmin. I’ve spent close to 600 hours with this little thing over the last year and half of cycling. We’ve been through a lot. I know how it feels, know the textures, the colors. Everything.
So I started modeling and well I have to say, that advice seems to have worked. I’m really happy with how it came out.
I plan on compositing it into a photo on the desk next to the real one. But that’ll be another day. Night time here and I don’t have my studio lights on hand.
Please let me know what you think.
