Trumpet tutorial pictureWanted ever to create some musical instrument in 3ds Max? Now you will have the chance!We will use a simple blueprint like a reference and place it in 3ds Max which will allow us to model this instrument step by step like it’s on the reference picture. We will use poly modeling , starting from a basic cylinder and step by step transforming it in a copy of the reference picture. Using the basic and advance techniques of poly modeling we will create a smooth model.

After we will create a basic scene, materials in Mental Ray and lighting which we will use by the final render. At final we will get in touch with some post production Photoshop. A quick gallery from the tutorial , download links and the tutorial you can find at the bottom of this article.
