Most people think SketchUp is good only for very simple models. Let me show you it's not true! With plugins like Artisan, SketchUV and some others organic modeling is not too difficult in SketchUp.
In this course I will show you how to model:
And for all of that you can make a good uv-mapping directly in SketchUp.
I've worked in SketchUp as an interior designer and 3d modeller for a few years. Most of the models used in my projects including sofas, beds, chairs and other complex furniture made in SketchUp with Artisan organic modeling plugin. I always try to make my SketchUp models not less accurate than 3ds Max ones. For rendering I use V-Ray for SketchUp. I've given SketchUp lessons since 2013 as well. Now I've recorded a course to share my experience with a larger audience.
