In this lesson, you will create Romeo, one of the animals from the Walt Disney movie Roadside Romeo. The character will be created starting from primitives. You will use many polygonal tools and deformers until the desired shape is achieved. As you learned in the first project, it will be possible to edit the construction history of modeling actions to update the model as you go. As well, you can edit the results throughout the lesson until you delete the history.

In this lesson, you will learn the following:

  • How to model starting from a cube primitive
  • How to model using smooth preview
  • How to model with symmetry
