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.

I usually try to slam out the UVs before I move on to another model, in case I reuse parts of it or whatever. Lol I kinda get why men don't really care for cabinets, it could be because you don't care about the pretty dishes, cutlery and photo frames and all that stuff that go in there.

Messing around with sofa ideas, and I really feel like ditching this one and hitting the drawing boards again. Probably won't go further than the cushions.

Hi GecT, I'm loving what you've done so far. The area looks brilliant even with nothing in it yet and the Shelving unit with the texture looks top notch. user added image I also like the sofa but think the arm rests are a little blocky, I'd round them out just slightly on the edges, then Id love to sit on it user added image

Keep up the good work.
