Default First work. Raptor WIP

Hi, here's my first thing done in maya. I think i'm ready for texturing it now.
I think of creating a scene where it's chasing a prey or something.

I haven't got the T-rex tutorial. I have the spider tutorial, it's great, learned a lot from it.
I started with nurbs, then nurbs to polys and polys to sub-D.
It's now in polys and smoothed.

Yes, the simplymaya spider tutorial. Reference pictures are hard to find. I only got one blurry picture for the sideview, no frontview. But there are enough pictures to learn a bit about the anatomy of the raptor.

Thx, well it is my first model. A good tutorial does wonders.
I,m now trying out a displacement map. First time i rendered it, it came out more like an elephant.
Does a displacement map work the same way as a bumpmap with that difference that you see it from whatever angle you view?

You must export object from maya in OBJ format and then import it in z-brush, download some tutorial from net!

the demo of Zbrush doesn't let you import objects only rthe full version and the spider image planes can be found on the simply maya tutorial forum under a title like spider images
Looking good for a first model :tup:
