I'm very new to modeling but feel I have been progressing decently for the time I have been learning. For the most part I have been able to self teach myself but Ive hit a bit of a hump that has been bugging me for a couple of days. To get to the point, I want to model a a Corinthian pillar which I have attempted various times but have ended up with basically a messy model that looks terrible. How should i go about it? I'm using Maya and have access to Mudbox, and here (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/Classical_orders_from_the_Encyclopedie.png) is the reference I plan to use (the bottom left one).
