Lighted Christmas Tree (Part 4 - Basic Ornament and Star)

This is Part 4 of 6 tutorials demonstrating the different aspects of making a lighted Christmas tree (including gift boxes). The commentary in these tutorials is minimized because my goal is to present something that will, hopefully, spark ideas of your own.

In the real world, setting up a Christmas tree is a very personal endeavor. I wanted to try and recreate that by not providing a step-by-step tutorial on exactly how to do it but, instead, simply show you ways to create the different parts that make up the tree. Part 6 will show how you can take the examples in parts 1 thru 5 and create a nice little Christmas tree of your own.

My ideas are based on an artificial Christmas tree, the kind that you would buy at the store and have to piece together on your own.

amazing tutorials, I was not that interested in making a xmas tree, however I liked the look of the branches and I learnt so much just watching you model I am now hooked, I will be making a tree now !

great format for the tutorials, more like this (i.e. series to create a object) really helped me with modelling techniques.

thanks again
