I added a page to my site, which points to some public GitHub repositories i own.
i was teaching at university few years back, and one of the 3D modelling demos that i was going over was advanced modelling techniques for graduate students. It spanned over a course of few weeks, where each Saturday we had a 2 hour sessions going over steps to model a 3D Car. The car was selected by popular vote (where i was the one calling the results), so H1- HUMMER won:) (i had most references for it collected head of the time). All of the sessions were screencaptured, and i had posted them on my YouTube a while ago, but just recently going through my videos there found that i had them sorted into a play list. I think i am missing few final videos, where i go render the car and doing some final touch-up work:)
see it for yourself, it also is accompanied by nice tunes (imho)
This is a pretty popular code snippet that i am rather reposting for my own sake, as i always have to google for it online, and i find some of the code being modified here and there, so i am posting my own version on my own blog. that i have modified for my own purposes 🙂 and if anyone happens to see this: enjoy 🙂
