How did you make the grass with the paint effects tool? I tried also to use it but didnīt mangage to cover the whole part of an area but just isolated blades of grass.

Would be nice if you could tell me, cause I was despairing because of it.

Thanks

Looks pretty cool for 4Hours of work!

I like to have random sessions with Maya! I like to just open it up, with no prior planing, or commitment to a project, and just simply see what i come up with. One time i built 2 Cars

Nice work!

2. In Brush profile menu - > Brush Width ( I set it about 10-15 try some values )

Thats work for me just fine just draw draw and draw ... but .. im with 1 GB Ram and when i get more drawing work with PaintFX my Maya crush so don't get to laid on painting

Hehe, looking pretty cool, though it doesn't look like a real chainsaw, but what the hell

Did you manually place all of those chain links around the chain saw mount/thingy?
