Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

Beyond human - Tweetytunes

Block out

Hi all - I know I just started my Grimlock but saw this today and just had to enter the comp.
Going to do this concept by Gary Yeung.

Just got a good block out done - took me longer than I thought but think its a good jump off point, as I am working with a very unfinished idea. He said in the description that this was a spider type sniper - Although 3 legs and a beast of a cannon (will being changing the gun to a more sniper looking one).

But as soon as I saw this one - I knew it was the one for me.

Wish me luck

Hip area update

Progress update on the hip area. Main shapes in there now. Not sure about the bottom disk as I cant think what its there for so may remove it. Moving on to the legs now.

Getting happy with the base area of this guy now, just need something for the inside of the cage towards the back.

Started on the legs and did some very quick test renders just to see how its looking. Colors are just a test no where near final.

Sorted out the seat today and also filled in the cage area under the seat as well. Again some quick renders - with the legs removed for now.

Starting Human Body

Ok so I have started collecting

ideas for the human part now. Some of the great ref I have been looking at ....

And I have broken her down to this main images I am going for .....


1. Going for much more real head than the cartoon look of the concept.

2. Love the look for this for the helmet - minus the face mask.

3. I think these shoulders would work well to match the concept.

4. Perfect ref for the left hand.

5. Loving this look for the mid section, but may cover the beasts with more the look for image 3.

6. I am toying with the idea of giving her a robot eye as she is supposed to be a sniper.

Although I am starting to feel a little bit of a prev with all these breast shots - but the concept does not give me a lot to play with.
