Over the weekend I got stuck on video 8. I don’t remember why I let the vertex welding tool slow me down but I did. Yesterday I worked on it for a few hours. I kept running into tiny problems that I didn’t want to wrap my head around fixing. For instance, when doing the roof piece I didn’t allow enough space between the cylinders to extrude things. So I redid each piece multiple times in order to avoid these little mistakes. With each tiny mistake, such as an accidently deleted edge, I learned what not to do.
Right now I am honestly still on video 14. I think I’ll manage to get a few good renders but . . . my file isn’t saved properly. I knew this but I just kept working hoping I could start over at the end and quickly go through the process. I’m a little frustrated that I keep having file saving issues. I need to review the earlier videos that deal with this.
Overall I’m starting to get the hang of things and I’m going through the videos faster as I become more proficient with the basic tools.
