car i’m currently working on. Any advice welcome. Thanks
So far, so good.
A 1995ish model of the Miata was my post-grad school, single guy car. Lotsa fun!
It’s gonna be red, right?
Hmm…yea I could use red. I might do that. Thanks
The model looks almost fine, however there are many unneeded vertices on some parts of the car (see image).
I sugest you to get rid of them and keep only the ones that are strictly required. This way the mesh is much easier to maintain.
oh. Your right about that. I wish I had realized that . Thanks. Time for reconstruction.
heres some pics of the model at the moment
I think the “eyebrows” over the headlights are overstylized, but overall its coming along well!
You have waaay too many vertices as I said before.
I think you can model this car with 10% of the vertices you use. Try to get rid of some of them.
TRexian: your right…that really doesn’t look very good
Cipix: your right. I got kinda confused trying to make the door lines and add the lines I saw on the blueprint. I got really carried away. The entire car is pretty dense. I don’t think it’s a very good model and it would be faster to restart. I’m just going to start on something else and try do it right this time. Thanks
I think you are on the right track with your modelling skills but you have look at a few good car wires too see how to place the vertices and edge loops.
Some links with wires:
You can look also at my Citroen C3 and Renault Scenic WIP.
thanks, those are very useful…i’ll study those so I can get a better feel for auto modeling
