Wow. We purchased copies of this book for our modeling courses as soon as it came out. The author, William Vaughan, is a master modeler and an incredible teacher. Furthermore, Foundry’s Modo, while a fully functional 3D package, remains one of the most artist friendly modelers on the planet.
I was recently working with a large group of designers with years of traditional and digital illustration experience that were extremely new to 3D graphics. They are masters at their craft and produce amazing 2D illustrations, but they wanted to add 3D to their toolset.
