Cool......

 

The way I approach modeling is viewing the model in half.....it makes it more simple for me to visualize it although u have rotoscopes....

well look at this way, every thing doesn't need to be connected(thats how i see it)...also some plugins would help...do you have the primitive plugin?

I spend a good 4 hrs or more and this how fare i got. I am thinking to redo the bottom part but then if u look at the nixus pics it looks like its a lil flat not all the way round. So wat do you guys think is it good or somthing wrong.

btw, you have made sure all the images are in sync right? if one image is diffrent from another it could cause confusion. you can stretch the images to fit the size which is what i do...

I think i need to go on a control point diet/spline diet. What do yall think.

 

 

To save you a bit of a headache.... expect to delete splinage after you've modeled most of the car.

That way you can build to match the shape/rotos without going crazy.

 

Also, I'm not sure what you ment before, but this car was not constructed of one solid piece.

It was built section by section. So certianly dont try and build this as one mesh.

Viper:

 

I don't want to detract from what you are doing, so I am not going to model the NIXUS now. You are doing great and should keep this thread for yourself. If I can be of any help, I will. I will certainly keep checking back in here.

 

Keep up the good work.

Smoothing it out comes last. Finish all the rest of the panels and everything else. Patience, patience, patience. Besides, from that angle it looks pretty smooth. Once you are done with all the panels, put a high spec and med intensity value on all the panels and look at it from all sorts of different directions. The spec values will give a clearer indication of where the panels need to be straightened. Then smooth, then post final and wireframe render of trouble spots for us to examine.

Start with the wheelwell outline and extrude back. Very similar to the back wheelwell. You are doing great, just keep experimenting. Every shape is a new challenge.

Looks great from the side....

however, I don't like that 3pt patch you have, or at least what looks to be a 3pt patch by

the back wheel area.

Youd be better off running another spline around the wheel fender for avoid any rendering artifacts...

 

But overall, very nice repro sofar of a pretty sharp car design...
