    Modelling a complex curve

    Adsflkjg Kjhfg

      How do you model a surface that "folds back" on itself? Like the hull of this ship for example: http://wordlesstech.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Improving-fuel-efficiency-by-blowing-air-bubbles-on-ship-hulls-3.jpg

       

      I feel like you should be able to with lofts maybe, but I've tried just about everything I can think of and still can't get it. All the tutorials I've managed to find seem to be for simpler curves, e.g. a vase. Help, I've been banging my head against this problem all day!

          Haha! That's a bit of a hack, isn't it?

           

          I'm somwhat familiar with surfaces, by which I mean I can kind of model curves. This is still beyond me. I feel like I've messed with every setting and still haven't stumbled across the answer!

           

          Don't suppose anyone else has any clue?
