February Challenge - Speed Machne - G.Harper
Hi all thought that I might try and give this challenge ago. I ‘am just new to Maya (in the past couple of weeks), but i have had a little dabble in Max many many years ago wile at uni, and thought this could be a good way to get back into the world of 3D.
Anyhow onto the challenge. I haven’t done any designs on paper, I have just created a simple sphere and then basically scaled, moved and extruded.
I guess the design has been styled by the star wars pod racers hopefully mixed with a little bit of the 1950’s style car design. Am not too sure whether it fly’s or is a car, maybes both, who knows? As I say am trying to use this as a way to learn the basic tools of Maya.
This is as far as I have got, I hope that I can start to add detail to it now.
PS: sorry for the texture and lighting, I don’t actually know how to add a texture to the model yet, and the lighting is just a mental ray image based lighting setting.
