In this polygonal modeling DVD, Sean Mills shows you how to create a bipedal humanoid model. Sean begins with a set of primitives for different body parts – arms, legs, torso and face – and refines them into muscle masses, primary contours and silouhettes. He then shows you how to refine those masses, establishing preliminary edge loops around musculature and areas of major deformation. Sean concludes by integrating these primary forms onto a contiguous character mesh. [Read more…]

Blender 3D models are the center of everything created in 3D, so they’re important to create properly. Topology is how a mesh’s vertices, edges, and faces combine to form shapes, and good topology uses those components in the most practical way possible. In this beginner Blender training course, you’ll learn a slew of mesh editing and selection tools, as well as how to use them to create good topology. By the end of these tutorials, you should be able to model anything that you set your mind to after following this set of Blender modeling tutorials. [Read more…]

Often, creating a hard surface model can be a bit tedious as well as being unfamiliar and intimidating. To create a better workflow, one needs to know and understand the advantages of using as many shortcuts as possible so that one isn’t spending an overly long amount of time creating meshes. A smart workflow can become your best friend as well as something you’ll use throughout your career. Shortcut hotkeys are an integral component of working smart, not hard. Understanding metholodies helps you to understand when best to use shortcuts and how to use them effeciently. There are tools hidden in 3DS Max that help facilitate the speed at which you can model and the Dreadnought Modeling Series is designed to help you access them. Using such tools as symmetry can help the artist visual how the whole mesh is looking while literally only working on a single half of the model. Swift loop is another extremely handy tool to use to help easily add edgeloops into the meshes. By creating custom shortcut hotkeys that the artist designs for themselves is a boon to the workflow in creating a solid design and, ultimately, a proper mesh. [Read more…]

English | Size: 173 MB
Category: Tutorial

In this course we will use multiple NURBS techniques to build a skateboard in Maya.

NURBS geometry provides several advantages over some of the other types of building methods available, but the process for creating NURBS geometry is somewhat different from building polygon or sub-d models. In this course we will explore hard-surface modeling by using a variety of NURBS tools and techniques in Maya to build a skateboard. We’ll go over tools like lofting, fillets, and using the CV curve tool and, by the end of this project, you’ll have a taste of the NURBS building process and be able to use these tools to start building your own models.
