Perhaps I am missing it, but are the reference images used in this tutorial available for download? All I could find in the asset section was the completed model.
(and, great tutorials, thanks!)

Hey, thanks for checking out the tutorials! I think Aidy didn't include them for copyright reasons (all of our stuff has to be CC). However I found the images using image search, I think it's OK at least to link them here:

@Michael Fasani: Did a reverse image search and found it, I uploaded them to imgur so they shouldnt magically disappear any time soon; http://imgur.com/a/cDYgM

@andy: Hi Andy! Aidy here. :D
Thanks for finding those links, the images are CC0 from pixabay, I also have them with some other assets related to the course, I'm contacting Francesco to see if we can add them here. :)
p.s. I don't get notified when there's any comments so I've only just stumbled across these now, so I'll try and respond to everyone now!!! :D

Dear Heavens. Aidy does a great SUPER-SPEED tutorial.

@stephen2: Haha, I'm going as mid-speed as possible! :D Hopefully though if you download you can tweak the playback speed in something like VLC to personal taste! :D

I'm wondering why the cylinder (the top part of the cone) and cube (the base) are added as separate objects? Given that we are modelling a single object, a hat, I would have thought that in blender we would join the two together?

@nick.sandow: It's always best to separate things as much as possible and only join when absolutely necessary, you reduce complexity during editing this way. But it's a personal preference mostly.

@andy: Thanks Andy. I am just starting out in 3d modelling and it had never even occurred to me to do things this way. At least I am learning alot from these videos!
