The next exercise will demonstrate two important techniques.
- The first is using a background image or template to guide modelling.
- The second is to use a spline as an outline for a model.
Both these are important techniques that you will make great use of. In this simple example you will model a chess pawn.
The instructions are at Pawn tutorial
These instructions are for an older version of the software, but I think you will be OK as you are getting quite familiar with the interface now.
