More Modeling practice
Start to design your robot in your sketchbook
Robot-model the robot from last week. You do not need to animate it, although you can if time permits.
One thing to remember, you can mirror an object using another object as reference. In this case, I used the robot as the object to use for the center point.
When complete with the robot, try this gingerbread tutorial from the BlenderWiki. It is an easy to follow tutorial, step by step written guide. You will continue to sharpen your modeling skills, use mirror again and practice working with materials. (Click here for tutorial)
There is also an excellent rigging and animation tutorial that follows. Doing the gingerbread person will help set a foundation for character modeling.
