Talking Rusty...

Hey guys,

I haven't touched maya in over a year and i wasn't the best in the first place but since i've been back i've been getting this urge to start something again. So last night i drew a very simple creature that shouldn't be too hard to model but still look good when its done. The sketch of this guy is attatched below. He won't have a mouth so that weird check in the front view by where his mouth could possibly be, won't be there... as of now :p

Alright,

not much yet, just the general shape, now i have to think of how i want this to all merge together .. should it have lips, or just kinda have parts stitch into the bean body.. hmm.

haha, this is such a stupid model .

By the way, the head is to the right of that image... so that little dot is its eye (apparently my brother didn't see that at all)

I like this, the whole idea of a very simple character really appeals to me. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one progresses. Keep it up M,

Mat.

I like it alot too, I'm really new to Maya and I need to think up some simple, yet good-looking models like this!

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback . Im slowly working on it, seeing im at school all day and then I usually have heaps of homework after that, then sports. haha, this could be some kinda little guy off of mario hey? Anyways, hopefully i can make this thing work. If you want simple models, just start out with simple shapes (like beans.. like i chose..lol) and work on that.. it gives you a simple model. Gotta go

Matt

Hey guys,

Wow talk about minimum updates hey? I've been swamped with physics and calculus homework primarily.. and rugby . So not a ton of time to be working on this model. Anyways today I had a bit of time to play around.. its getting late here though so im about to head off to bed, get some sleep . I know its just a screenshot, i'll have a render soon . Still needs lots of tweaking and textures.

Once again, what a stupid model.. hahaha

Hello once again!

Okay i had some more time tonight as of midnight on to work on this model . As much as it doesn't look all that much better, probably worse than the previous image... its now officially all one piece, lower polys and its got a total UV map with this horrible texture (for now ). One thing (which is a big thing) that i forgot to do, is put the checkerboard grid on and make sure all of my points aren't too stretched out. This guy isn't that detailed though, so hopefully i can get away with a few stretches here and there if i texture it properly in photoshop . C&C welcome!
