Q: Where to start with Hard Surface?
A: I personally learned a ton studying the boolean-bevel workflow, followed by how to clean shading, manage ngons, and identify common issues such as artifacting and distortion. I started learning hard surface through masterxeon1001’s videos. We also have a full beginners course for those of you who are interested in a comprehensive step-by-step workflow: https://gumroad.com/l/QERDS​

I hope the video and this description gives you some insight, since these are questions that I get frequently!
