timberwo7ves: I also needed some time to realize that you dont need a turbosmooth on every object. sometimes its enough to bevel an edge here and there.
and like ClassicGamer said: 90 min

Of course when you are modelling there can be unexpected issues and maybe you won't have the time to do something, but if all its planned you have a "path" to follow and anticipate when possible, and you wont loose time wondering what to do next while actually modelling.

It's complicated at first, but you'll see is not that hard, and it will get easier each week.
Thanks Ocin and Pables; I'm finding that I'm always working with the smooth preview (with the intention of smoothing later) turned on in Maya but I'll try to see where it's overkill; I guess it also depends on how close the object will be to the camera.

I'll try having a go at this one, in the "90" minutes :suspicious eyes: provided
we're all different [...] but there's something Fantastic about that
