Hello all -
As some of you may know, I’ve been working on a video series that focuses on the fundamentals of NURBS modeling. While I may be adding a few videos here and there to the final playlist over time, I feel that at this point the series is largely complete so I figured I do a little post about it. You can find the complete list of videos on YouTube by clicking here. Over the years, there’s been countless threads to the tune of “how do I learn to model better?” Often, many of us responding felt that there was not a good, coherent answer to that question. Lots of people, myself included, after doing the Level II coursework felt a little lost about how to progress after that. There are scores of tutorials out there, and the sad truth (in my opinion) is that many of them are not all that helpful, and many in fact are the opposite of helpful. This series is built on the belief that we can all become better at modeling through a clear understanding of patch layout, surface definition and matching. It is my attempt to free others from what I call a “curves in - surfaces out” workflow. And possibly to get people to stop using NetworkSrf as a primary surfacing tool. It is, in essence, my attempt to answer the “where next?” question that many people ask after Level II. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it. It is currently, and will forever be free to watch.
