Summing Up

In this chapter, you've modeled a series of objects from very basic shapes. By breaking objects down into their simplest components, you can see how something complex can be described with very little actual complexity but nonetheless with considerable precision. Try taking the methods you've covered and applying them to create some of the real-world objects you see every day. Focus on the basic shapes, then observe the crucial details (rounded edges, cracks and corners), and use the precision techniques you've learned here to put them into your model. Once you have achieved this, you can turn your hand to creating the designs in your own imagination.

In the next chapters, we'll look at more involved modeling challenges—creating environments and characters.
