    Hi, guys.

    Couple days ago started a new car, so I want to share a progress with you. As a fan of Audi this time gave a try for a S8. Not much done yet, only a base mesh. Used a spline cage for snapping polygons.

    guile it's quite simple. At first I trace the blueprints with lines to get a spline cage which is like a 3D blueprint. I attached picture to show how it looks. After that when I place polygons, i snap their vertices to those lines using Snaps Toggle.

    Nice start.
    It appears the side, especially near the end is too flat vertically?

    Great to see another audi project here. Good luck with it! About modeling I have nothing to say because I don't use poly, but I'm sure that poly guys here will give you a feedback and advice if you will want.

    Hi guys,

    It's been some time from my last post, so finally found some time to update S8.

    By the way credits to kriscabrera for his amazing tires.

    Thanx for your comments guys :) so time for update. The headlight is finished, only needs some tweaks. Tried a quick test render to see how all car front looks. What do you think?
