Spanning three parts this series will give you an in-depth look at what it takes to create a fully realized vehicle model in 3D Studio Max using blueprints and photo reference. As Sasa walks you through the creation of each part, you'll learn how to work with Max's Edit Poly modifier, spline tools and much more!
