In this tutorial I will explain the techniques and concepts behind mesh modeling as I do it. It will be from the basics and up, so that even a beginner can get the hang of it.

Prop Modeling Project 2 - Wine Barrel Modeling
For the second project in the 'Prop Modeling 101' series, we'll start working on a detailed wine barrel model. In part one, we'll start out with a basic primitive shape and use modifiers to quickly shape it into a base mesh for our barrel. Once we have the correct shape made, we'll look at a way we can break it up into separate boards. We'll discuss different techniques to use when working with high poly geometry verses low poly geometry. We'll cover mesh clean up and discuss some tips on getting everything into quads. We'll also cut a hole through the side of the barrel, add a plug, lid and bottom and finish off the wooden portion of our barrel off by UV mapping everything.

Speed Modeling a Head in 3ds Max 2010
In this video author shows us a "speed modeling" of a head, starting from a plane. This technique is especially useful when you have a good reference and your model in mind, because you can go directly to the final mesh and define each element of the face and its topology.

3ds max head tutorial using Spline Cage
Modeling the human head / skull in 3ds Max is not that hard to do. This tutorial will teach you the basics of Spline Cage modeling of a human skull using background pictures in 3ds Max. The process is the same for modeling a head. Draw a Spline using the Line tool. Make rough front and side outlines, and start building the Spline Cage using the Refine Connect tool. Then apply a Surface modifier to add skin to the skull. After the half mesh is complete, convert the object to an Editable Poly for further refining. Make a Clone Copy of the half mesh and Weld the two halves together to make one object. Add a Shell modifier to give inner thickness to the object. Finally, Extrude the teeth poly's out a bit, and add a TurboSmooth modifier.

Modelling a Duck in 3ds max
This is a tutorial about modeling a cartoon duck. The modeling technique is spline modeling. The model is constructed in 3D Studio MAX by using splines. The model will get its final form when Surface modifier and Meshsmooth modifier is added to it. Why this kind of modeling technique? Nowadays polygon modeling seems to be the standard for character modeling. I think that polygon.

Female Body Modeling: Part 1
These tutorial will cover the female body modeling from setting up the references, low poly body modeling, hand and foot modeling to completion. This video series is divided in 3 parts.

Character Modeling: Specular Map Painting
I have decided to take the initiative and create a small tutorial on visualising specular values on a ZBrush mesh. Mudbox 2009 will have this, too, but I want to demonstrate how to see different specular values that will look proper in a renderer, such as Mental Ray.

Making a Sideshow Bob
Conceptualization is most important. because at this moment we are very clear that what we are going to construct... soon to pass the modeling and to be constructing mesh base on the concept, is something as well as one devises in a design project. If you dont have this, you dont have nothing.. Definitively it not going to work... the idea is the Motor of all project and without this, believe me not going to arrive at any port. It is here where all the questions, are answered.

Modeling firelighters
In this tutorial we would like to show you some advanced techniques by modeling three firelighters, each from different kind using poly modeling technique in 3dsmax . We focus on the basic shape and got deeper by manipulating vertex and edges using poly modeling. After we will create a basic scene, materials in Mental Ray and lighting which we will use by the final render. At final we will get in touch with some post production Photoshop.

Create a Game Ready Fire Extinguisher with 3D Studio Max: Part 1
Making models for 3D games is really fun. And the most exciting and challenging part is that we model in low poly and then bring the details to life through sculpting, texturing and baking methods. Although the final model looks quite highly detailed, in reality it is still a low poly mesh. In this tutorial series, we'll learn how to create a game ready Fire Extinguisher in 3ds Max. We'll start with basic low poly modeling techniques and then cover the highly detailed modeling, texturing and baking of this object in later parts.
