Today’s Udemy course focused on building simple curved models. After a quick refresher on Bézier curves and importing reference images, we were all set to map the edge of a bowling pin with a spline.

A couple simple materials later for the pin and the stripe, and you’ve got yourself a brand new bowling pin asset.
