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.

Nice layout, I like the space given to the Rackmount Room. An area of high priority, -now just stick a robot in there that will take care of all network/rendering issues/software updates/service packs/OS incompatibilities/firmware updates/new version integration issues/and maybe serve beer & snacks user added image .

Unfortunately the bot would probably just catch dust because I'd enjoy the tinkering, its a sickness.user added image

Ok so, I didn't meet my quota but I'm digging in there. I started in on the room, next up is furniture and major electronics. And don't make fun of my placeholder furniture lol.user added image

Don't shoot me for saying so, but at the moment it's feeling more like a waiting area to me than an office. However, I love the look of it and the view is SWEET! I have a feeling though that once you get furniture and accessories in place, it's going to be an office with a huge "WOW" factor. The natural lighting is very pleasant. I can't wait to see more updates.

More power to you for liking the tinkering user added image . Those are aspects that can just 'kill' me; right when I want to get that batch render done, Backburner throws up errors that need you to run to the moon and back :-) (well..., I don't use Backburner anymore ). The beach ball in there is very fun. The bot should still serve recycled & purified rain water user added image .

Working on the desk and pc and getting there. The desk has some structural issues (I kept changing the design :s) so I have to sort that out. As for the workstation, there's the tower,mouse, keyboard, tablet and speaker system, then the cable management.

Can I have that monitor station? Looking really nice GecT. Is that procedural texture on the desk top?
