    It's quite simple: start from ball, divide it to hemispheres and with bridge tool- make capsule lookin' object. Next- duplicating, transform and booleans to join them and making letters, there was a lot work with fixes and repairing mesh after booleans ;/ at end- adding loops here and there - for better edges in subpath mode.
    paint splashes- letters was duplicated, then cut with knife tool for apriopriate parts, unnecesary polygons have been removed, then- extruded with multishift tool. After this some tweaking was done to form paint stains.. that's all.

    Congrats Slartibartfast. Verhy nice model you got there.

    Yes I have a lot of room for improvement. I started with Lightwave 7 and gave it up after 2 days and made my way over to MAX. I decided to try Lightwave again and upgraded to 11. The hardest thing for me is knowing what I want to make without relying on my MAX background. That approach does not work very well. I find myself only using a fraction of the tools in modeler, bevel, extrude, connect, etc, the very basic tools. I am slowly going through the manual to get used to all the other tools that I have yet to use. This challegne was the first time that I used anything associated with text in Lightwave.

    I like the shark JoePoe! When I see the animal planet-animals made up of letters, I always think I'd try that. Never did though. Thx anyway! And thx bellmore! Keep practising, you will get very far with just those basic tools you mentioned!
