Good way to model upholstery?


What would be a good way to model upholstery like this on the image?

The “soap” bubble plugin is a good one for this, but could be done other ways. This video is a good resource.


Another method is to draw it low poly, then smooth the edges.

Nice modeling concept. If one was to create a component from it, it would be easy to apply and array across a surface :slight_smile:
