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.

Posted this in the wrong area

Posted this in finished work before, sorry. Perhaps you might delete it from there- I'm new is my only excuse. I just wanted to say thanks very much for the Tiefighter Interceptor tutorial; it was really well made and I learnt some rather interesting things from it. I am a bit of a Maya N00b and have only made things for game mods before. This forum is a little goldmine of good ideas and inspiring work. As for me well things can only get better.

Two pics to post, a WIP composite shot and a test render prior to texturing.

I am now branching off to try and create a Walker model (no idea why the Star Wars theme but it seemed as good as any) and will post some WIP shows in the right place if they are not too shame inducing.

Nice job, your wings are very jolly, lots of good detail there. It's a great tut to get started on I think.

Thanks, will do. In the meantime I have a AT-ST Walker on the go as well- these are quick renders of the finished supporting frame minus cabin (material is just there to facilitate the screenshot).

Holy Moly, this is great! Good job! I really like your At-ST legs user added image. Starwars models seem to be a hit here on sm.

Thanks a lot. This one is coming together rather well so far. It now has a cabin, although the top hatch etc is not modelled yet.

Quick update of the base model with a temporary texture- it's almost finished now so onto the texturing shortly.
