Audi R8 3D Car Modeling Tutorial

Learn to model a fully detailed High Poly Audi R8 Spyder, all videos will be available for free on YouTube, stay tuned for more!

Welcome to my Audi R8 3D Car Modeling Tutorial. This Tutorial series will be looking at the tools and techniques required to create a high poly, fully realized Audi R8 Spyder. The series uses Autodesk Maya to complete the vehicle however, any 3D software will allow you to achieve the same result just using different tools with a different interface. I have attached all the files needed to get started, ready formatted to import straight into your 3D package.
