Mastering Hard Surface Modeling - M4 Tank

In this 29 hour long project we build a realistic replica of an M4 Sherman tank. Using both polygon and subpatch modeling techniques we create all the different parts of the tank, such as the turret, guns, hatches, wheels and tank treads that can be animated. As it's one of the longest tutorial ever produced in LightWave, and the model is so highly detailed, we recommend it to artists with some prior modeling experience.

This tutorial is available on our streaming platform. Don't like streaming? No problem, you can buy this tutorial for download.
