Introduction to Maya - Modeling Fundamentals Vol 1
This course will look at the fundamentals of modeling in Maya with an emphasis on creating good topology. We'll look at what makes a good model in Maya and why objects are modeled in the way they are.

In regards to your 'casting call', are you looking for completed assets (UV mapped w/ textures etc) or is geometry more of what you're looking for? If geometry is what you want, I'd be happy to help out. If you need finished assets I might be willing / able to do that also. Post what you need...

Also, what level of detail are you aiming for? For instance will there be closeups of the sets, or will the majority of the animation be birds-eye view type stuff?

BTW I like what I've seen from you guys so far. Keep up the good work.

If you would like to UV map w/textures, go right ahead. It will just save us time. As for close ups and all, some scenes will be close ups, and others will be birds eye view type. So you can make it as detailed as you like. As for my Accord is, heres the latest update, with a temporary set of rims. user added image

Ide be glad to make anything i could, although im super new to maya.. so if you need a square, maybe a cylinder... i might be able to pull it off. No textures though. lol.

But if you need idea help im here for you.

Weird i was like the second person to post in this thread and not a word till page 14 like 5 months later... lol. I guess im the only one that finds that amusing.

Okay is anyone else gonna take a crack at the streetscene.mb, i uploaded it here a little while ago and was thinking that brid or someone was gonna play with it, if not i can go back to work, but only one can work on the file at once.

As for building seperate peices for import anything and everything is welcome, preferably with highres, near photoreal quality textures. But WELL TAKE ANYTHING!! We need any little object you'd find in a city, street signs, dumpsters, store window textures, store sign textures, graffiti textures (large highres!) newstands, hotdog stands whatever you can thinkof, or if you live in a city, anything you can see!

To all of you with digicams and a few megapixels to kick around, try taking some nice flat pictures of the things i said above, or of anything in a city! I've run out of inspiration and the google image search isn't helping!

I might take a crack at the street.mb file. Have there been any other updates to it since you posted it? If not, I will start fiddling with it tomorrow, but I have some character rigging work I need to get done first.
