Cell Phone

9 posts in this topic

Just a quick 6 hour video on how to do subdivision surface modeling, the subject matter a cell phone.

In this video, i'll go over modeling a cell phone with SDS(subdivision surfaces), sorry no audio. Total run time is close to 6 hours, 8 part video. I use Luxology Modo 302, but you can follow along with any other 3D software.

Something i do often in the video is turn a good old quad into 2 triangles(no i'm not crazy) :

in figure A. you'll notice this nice quad poly. The problem is the smoothing along the bevel part isn't quite right. In figure B. i select 2 point and connect, this creates a valence 4 vertex( a vertex with 4 edges sticking out of it), the blue arror shows the the new tension direction, this results in a slightly better bevel smoothing.

Over the course of a week it is very quick. Maybe you should get a hobby that takes more than three seconds to accomplish? dick jokes lol

You have way too much time on your hands if you think 6 hours is quick.

Having only every tried modeling once, and failing desperately; creating that in 6 hours deserves all the kudos i can give.

I'd love to be able to do stuff like modeling/animating etc., but I don't want to take the time :/

That is amazing though, do you work professionally anywhere?

I'd like to say i freelance but that job hasn't kick in yet, hopefully sometime this year. I'm mostly using my free time to work on my demoreel. Once that is done..i plan on applying for a job with Project Offset in Newport Beach.
