So once you start up Blender you get this awesome cube
Image
Then you hit TAB to enter Edit mode

Then you hit A until every Vertice is selected (Orange)

Then you hit W for subdivide
Image
Image
Then you delete half the cube along the X axis, the red line. (I did it wrong in the diagram)
Image
Then go over to modifiers in the properties tab, and add Mirror. (Should be defaulted for the X axis)
Image
Image
Image

Then drag this plus sign out
Image

Scroll down to the bottom, check off background images. Then download a reference image you would like, wireframes and diagrams work best.
Image
Image
Then hit Add Image and select your image, for now i'll use Mudkip
Image
Image

Now, to get your reference image showing. Hit 1 on the Numpad and 5 on the Numpad
Image
After that, now is the modelling part. Select two vertices you want to extend, hit E for extend and drag it where you want. Middle click to snap to a axis
Then just fool around till you are happy.


Also, when adding a new object do this. (Ill use a sphere for example)
Image
Image
And now you have a high poly disco ball
Image
Decrease the polygons a bit at the bottom right
Image
Im thinking 6 and lower

#59039 WOW just WOW thank you for posting this. Hopefully this will motivate everyone to use not just the guides but make more models. I prefer blender because of its usability over techne. That and there is WAY more options. Thank you greatly for this wonderful post.
