I've finally been introduced to 3D modelling software! This week we've been learning the basics of Maya. Initially I was quite intimidated by the vast number of tools, boxes, hotkeys, etc. but we were given a tutorial to follow to create a simple truck shape. After nearly losing my temper a few times I managed to complete the tutorial in half an hour or so. Here is the result!
The next part of this module involves creating a short 3D CGI film. I'm really looking forward to grasping the functions of Maya and other software, and learning to create more complex shapes.
