Hi Everyone.

This is my one of my first paying 3D jobs and I would really appreciate any feed back.

The job was a toolkbox for Toyota New Zealand, with the final job being die-cut and mailed out to customers. Attached is an image showing the front and inside.

To make the image I created the basic shape using splines and sub-d's. I then froze the object and booleaned the shapes out. Was this the best way to do this??

Looks great, Kiwi!

Maybe just a little to small.
Now it have the size of a handbag,
but maybe the tools are quite small.

Nice work!

Great job! Obviously it worked, and you finished it in a reasonable amount of time, so who cares if it was the "best" way? Judging from the final product it was a good way and it worked for you! There's so many different ways to do this stuff...

There is no best way. There is only what works or what doesn't..

Well...there is also time. Occam's razor...the best solution, all else being equal, is the simplest.

I can't fault it, looks fantastic! Textures are spot on!

Is the car a 3D model too? Or was it Photoshop'd in there?

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. When you're just starting out its nice to know you're doing something right.

The car was added later in PhotoShop, but I did add a rough shape of the car (slightly smaller) to cast the shadows.

To give credit where its due, I couldn't have done this without Spline Gods tutorials. Very highly recommended.
