Modelling by reference sheet


this is my first posting here. I've been reading through and modeling, but now I have a question.

Usually, when searching for a reference or a model sheet, I find left projection, but no full frontal projection. So what is your advice, how to deal with this situation?

Should I draw my on front projection, or set up image planes differently in Max...
Please help a novice modeller

Many thnx

I usually draw my own references, but If you need a good front reference, you could also find similar sources. For example: find references with similar shapes, and use the front images of those. It is always helpful to use as many references as you can, to achieve realism. I hope this helps, and welcome to CG Talk.

The best is to get some pictures that do fit together,like the ones on

Other than that,you can use one of your other front references and draw some splines(if soft allows it) around them,then all you need is to find a profile picture to go with it and fit them together.That way you can edit in the perspective viewport without going too much out of bounds.
