Key Features
In this project Jason Edwards takes you through the modeling and UV layout of our Surfing with the Alien character. Jason's been in the 3D industry for many years as a Senior Modeler on films such as John Carter and Marmaduke, so if you want to know how to create an organic character that meets the industry standard this is the tutorial for you.

This series contains three volumes on character creation in Maya. Volume Two covers a texturing workflow in ZBrush and Maya. Volume Three covers character rigging and nCloth.
