There’s a common misconception that the block out mesh is a throwaway item and a waste of time. Learn about the importance of creating a good block out mesh and how to use it as a jumping off point for creating subdivision cage meshes.
Topics covered include: creating a block out that can be used as a base mesh, matching segment counts on cylinder to cylinder intersections and basic modeling operations for subdivision hard surface modeling.
The subdivision modeling exercises provides a set of prints to follow and a clear objective for artists to work towards as they master basic modeling tasks.
This 8 page, searchable PDF tutorial includes detailed line drawings, a sample exercise and example models in OBJ files.
