Quick Start to Modeling in Maya: Volume 3

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
In Volume 3 of Quick Start to Modeling in Maya, we'll build on the modeling concepts covered in volumes 1 and 2. We'll start by blocking in the main shapes of our stun gun asset, making sure to place edges strategically for later use. We'll use extrusions and edge loops to create hard surface detail and NURBS curves to aid in building specific elements. We'll use a variety of polygon and NURBS-based tools and we'll learn to make sure everything fits together to create a cohesive model. We'll finish the process by cleaning up our scene and putting our geometry into an appropriate hierarchy. These courses are designed to be taken in sequence so we really encourage you to start with previous volumes before continuing with this section. Software required: Maya 2014.
