I have to create a small book about shapes which will be read to 5th graders. I have to teach them about shapes, and i can illustrate it. My math teacher is the devils butt baby and she said we can CG the illustrations. she probably means making squares in Paint, but im making it in Maya, the ultimate CG. Atleast 10 pages, and i just finished the cover. Its due in like a week so im reusing my RollerToy creation, concentrating on lighting and atmosphere. using photoshop a good deal __________________ Yay, not a freshman anymore!

Keep in mind, its written for 2nd-5th graders! "Pg.3 He created the Dimensional Manipulator. A machine that manipulates a point, to form 2D, 3D, and 4D objects. A point defines an exact location in space. It has no area, length, or depth making it zero dimensional. A point is represented by a small sphere in this picture. pg4. Alan pressed a button on the Dimensional Manipulator, the point stretched and changed shape to create a 1D line. Since a line is infinitely long, it rapidly extended outward at both ends. Alan panicked and pressed another button." __________________ Yay, not a freshman anymore! Last edited by kinddoggofwar : 22-02-2008 at 10:08 PM.

Physics at Uni ahaha. Well worded but are you sure kids will understand any of that? Nice work either way __________________ Visit www.Notice-Board.co.nz for FREE online classifieds, notices and ads in your area!!

With the point, i completely agree, no reflection or specularity. The zoom in would be very helpful too! thanks! __________________ Yay, not a freshman anymore!
