Show references to images in tutorials more?
I was looking for a Maya tutorial for weapons modelling and found the H&K tutorial, which is largely great.
However, there are a number of occasions during modelling where you are apparently looking at other reference materials other than the image plane in order to plan ahead when adding geometry.
The problem is we are not shown the reference on the screen so that we can better see your train of thought when manipulating the geometry on screen, so it's a little difficult to figure out the 'why' behind your modelling decisions when adding geometry. It's my humble view that the 'why' behind what your are doing is just as important as being shown 'what' you are doing.
Would it not be possible to have the pictures of the references you are referring to off-camera loaded up so you can flash them on screen while explaining the choices you're making when adding and manipulating geometry? Maybe just ALT-TAB back and forth between Maya and the picture of a reference image as you explain your modelling decisions?
Other than that, great work.
