Week 2 of MCR was pretty awesome! I was able to make 12 different props for my Cafe scene and got it done in time for the soft deadline and received a 100% A. I have really gotten into working with Maya. I still have some times where I can not exactly figure out what I did or how to do something but I have learned so much when comparing to 3DF. The best part of MCR is we get to learn all the short cuts and tricks that the teachers know instead of having to do it the loooooooong way. I find myself thinking in Maya, I will look at some random object and try to think of how the geometry would work to model it.
I am most proud of my Umbrella. I put a lot of work into this one and tried to get as much detail out of it. I did it last and used all my skills I learned during class to try to get this umbrella to look just like the reference picture. Please click on the pictures to view them in full size so you can see the detail in the work.
Looking forward to next this week as we will get to start working with ZBrush. I have been very excited to start playing around with ZBrush and use my Waycom Tablet I got from school. We will be making a pillow, which sounds simple, but ZBrush has about a thousand buttons.
Wish me luck!
