modelling practice: Wacom pen holder

Recommended Posts

To practice my modelling skills, I'm trying to model some relatively simple objects that I have lying around. After the USB stick, I tried modelling a Wacom pen holder (this is from my older model Intuos 2). It's actually quite a tricky shape as it seems to be curving in all conceivable (and some not so conceivable :lol:) directions at the same time, as well as having a challenging circular hole that is partly cut off at the end. I think I managed to make it look pretty close to the real thing though. (I will post some wires soon).

  • Yeah well, but that's unsubdivided. That n-gon doesn't cause any issues and just turns into perfect quads after subdividing anyway.

    Please don't vaporise me! :lol:

     

    I see just the one btw, not sure where the other one is ;) (ok it's obviously mirrored on the other side so I guess that make two)

     

    This is what it looks like after one subdivision:

    you need to excuse those two, they can't help themselves, they already have meetings twice a week at AQ (anonymous quadroholics)... you need to be careful, don't get to close to them. it's infectious. i used to have an occasional ngon here and there in my characters, and i didn't mind at all. but i got too close to vector, and now i also find myself modelling everything all quads...  nice modelling btw ;)

    HA well it's kinda cheating if you rely on making the sub editable to make it perfect quads for you ;)  i feel like i should also critique the curvature of it, although i don't have the thing myself i can imagine it being more of a smoother curve but that's just being picky, other wise it looks nice. i won't vaporise you on this occasion but note, i came close :D
