The Swingshot motorcycle was a very fun, challenging model, and a great learning experience. Part of the challenge was the lack of knowledge about bike parts. In order to get reference for the pieces, I needed to know the names of the parts I was looking for. It was a steep learning curve, but it was worth it. It was modeled in 3ds Max and
rendered in Mental Ray.
