Welcome to the next workshop!
I am going to be trying something new. Instead of just posting up a picture, I am going to actually try to do this challenge with everyone in parallel. That way, as progress is made, questions may be asked.

 Rules:

  • This stage is High Poly Only
  • Result must be by Eye (No blueprints allowed)
  • You must follow the images as closely as possible. 
  • You MUST post images with updates as you go. If you wait till the very end and post 1 image with a finished product, it won't be considered.

I hope you all enjoy, as I have not truly modeled anything hard surface in quite sometime, it should be interesting. Smiling

Good luck everyone!

Make sure that your naming of the personal thread is right though. 

"Workshop" - "Your Name"
Example: ( Workshop 9 - Jeremy Baldwin)

Sounds awesome! I haven't participated in one of these yet, so it will be a nice side project away from work

Any 3d application is fine Smiling You can use a combination of programs or a single one. Anything is fine.

Hey everyone,

This is the first time I did a high poly model. It's also the first time I post something on this website. 

I started with the keys because I thought it was a good starting point. After that I also started with some details on the side. Let me know what you think and how I can improve my work.

If you can, make a new thread in the section Mini Challenges/Workshops and label it according to your workshop.

Example:
Workshop 9 - KayvdHeuvel
Go ahead and re-upload your images there Smiling

 Welcome to Eat3d! This is looking pretty good. So usually when you are starting off with HP models, you want to be careful not to get into all of the detail to early. If you have to make changes or adjustments, it's a lot easier to make early on when you poly count is low. Start off with rough shapes first to get the general proportions correct, then you can move to smoothing and adding in all that extra detail. 

Check on the keyboard keys, right now they look like your generic keyboard keys. On the laptop they are more shallow and have a border around the keys themselves. Keep it up! I look forward to seeing the end result. Smiling

Thnx for the feedback.

@Ceribral: Okay, I'll go create a new thread so I can post my own progress Eye-wink

@njackson: So just start with low poly and that polish things up?
