Talking My 6 Year old son's Maya Work

Hi Guys,

I thought I would share some of the work my 6 year old son has done over the course of 2005 till now. He started using Maya when he was 5 and he is 6 now.

Cheers
Paul

Hi guys,

I just showed him your posts and he loved it. His reply was "I'm not a master, I only know how to use polygons and I don't even know how to texture".

Cheers
Paul

Thanks for the feedback guys, he is loving it.

What's interesting is how kids will give anything a go. I can't believe he can use the 3 button mouse and alt key at the same time, Shift and Ctrl select face and vertices etc

Cheers
Paul

Excellent work mini BMS. I love some of your vehicles, especially the colourful car on the left. Good work!

Think I might have to stick to my day job. :shakehead

Its pretty cool. My wife limits his time on it because at first it was almost impossible to get him off Maya. Now he is allow a couple of hours per week and he seems to have accepted that.

I've told him for his next project I will let him start a WIP thread on this board under my User Name

He wants to make a Messerschmitt . . don't expect it to be scale :p

Cheers
Paul
