Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

hehehe...I know what ya mean. The older I get, the more I tend to be nervous when wading at the beach ,especially if I can't see below me. If I have a mask on, I can at least get an idea of what's around me....not that that would mean much if a tiger, bull, or great white decide to barrel into me and take a chunk out of my leg....yeesh.

I tell you what, when I did my open water dives for my certification, it was along a reef wall -- reef to the right and open blue to the left. I found myself getting very nervous when moving away from the reef and just into the blue....perhaps it's the fact that there's nowhere to hide or back yourself against in an emergency situation...being caught in the open. Truth be told, though...half the time you're your own worst enemy in the water with fear and whatnot. I suppose it's always good to have a little fear as it keeps you alert should a dangerous situation occur.

Diving in open water makes you realize just how small you are in this tiny world.

Nah, it's all good, bud. Sharks are more interested in surfers in bathers. Neoprene isn't very tasty. user added image

Lol, if the fact that they taste with their mouths is true, then they wouldn´t know if it´s tasty or not AFTER biting right?

Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the person who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express their opinions courageously and honestly.

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.

Estoy seguro que todo va a mejorar tanto para mi como para todos por acá.

Thanks for the kind words buds. I´ve lowered a lot my posts per day, but as you can see I´m still taking part in some interesting topics. Hopefully this will be the case for as long as the forum keeps running around. user added image
