Beginners question
show user profile  pmzq
Dear all,

I've had some experience in developing basic simple 3D art.

They were very low poly and the texturing wasn't that nice.

Now I want to take it to a new level, but I want to make a good start so I start asking questions :)

The first project I want to "try" is generating a spaceship. I need this for my online gamehttp://www.galaxycommander.nl.

I am already confused how to start this project a thing like a spaceship would I have to start from 1 box with multiple lines and start dragging out the polys or would you rather design it from different figures and add them together.

Also I was wondering for example this imagehttp://www.the3dstudio.com/product_details.aspx?id_product=34093

Is this made up by different parts and for example the body part of the ship has some little bobbles on the nose is this in the texture or is this done by extruding in 3D studio max ?

Thanks for any help

You are in luck!

One of the tutorials that comes with Max is about making a spaceship from a box.
