I have been using blender for <2 wks and I’ve been learning by reading the Wikibook Noob to Pro. I have done some successful renders (http://server.ericsbinaryworld.com/blog/?p=550 - for example) But so far every tutorial I’ve read starts with a box or a sphere and then stretches different parts of that to get the animal. The penguin, for example, was entirely made from a sphere.
When you model, what should be part of the same mold and what should be a different object.
For example, if making a person, do you model the clothes as part of the same object - thus technically the clothes is the skin, or do you do something separate. Should the arms start off from the same square or should you model them separately and then attach the arms to the body.
Thanks, if that wasn’t clear, I’ll try and be more clear.
