Project Three: Weapons

I followed a tutorial when creating this bow. I added a couple of minor alterations for the purpose of experimenting. I added my own texturing and lighting. I used the gold and chrome textures from the Solid angle material library

All of the below rendered using Arnold.



I textured and lighted this scene of this sword which I had previously created, i saved the texture values for gold and chrome which i entered on the bow to my presets and added them.

I originally wanted to make this weapon without help from a tutorial but I was confused at how to create the blade so I got help from another one of Mike Hermes video linked below.

Project Two: Living Room Model

For class we were to model an object so I modeled a lamp, I accomplished this through the process of extruding for the most part. Watching maya tutorials at the time helped me a lot as I leaned a lot of shortcuts making me work faster.


After completing my lamp it only seemed fit to place it in a room, I loosely modelled my home living room. I rendered these scenes in Arnold.

I used the following tutorials for help when modelling this room. I made a few minor changes to the the objects modelled in these videos to attain a greater likeness to my own furniture.

21/11/16 Bouncing Ball refernces

Today in Class we looked at parent relationships in Maya. We created a solar system with the sun, earth and moon. Once you finish the model it doesn’t seem very difficult but at this early stage it’s easy to take a few wrong turns so it’s essential to ask as many questions as possible! Our task for next Monday is to animate a bowling ball, a tennis ball and a bouncing ball which should be fun. I attempted bouncing balls and using squash and stretch, I have many failed attempts.
