'Mini Semi Truck' Modeling - Day 2

by

Today we bring you day 2 of the 'Mini Semi Truck" tutorials series by Cgtuts+ Co-Editor Ben Tate. In today's post we'll continue to block out and detail the truck model by adding the front grill, bumper, headlights and gas tank, as well as the main exhaust pipe sections.

The 'Mini Semi Truck' tutorial series focuses on the creation of a stylized high poly vehicle in 3d Studio Max. The goal of this series is to teach you quick and effective techniques for creating high resolution sub-division surfaces. These universally transferable techniques can be applied to not only vehicle creation, but most other modeling projects as well.
