Last night I finished my final presentation for my 3D Foundations Class (which basically taught me the basic of using the Maya application.) I had to take 4 of the models that I created from image references, UV them, Bake an Ambient Occlusion on them and then import them into a scene. Then had to take an artistic render image of this. So, for a program I started the month of August knowing almost nothing about I think I did pretty well.
This is how that turned out. I don’t know how “artsy” the picture I took is, but at least I got the silly models to stop glowing! Apparently when I imported them I forgot to move some files beforehand and Maya did some funny stuff.
so, I made the teapot, the fork, the candlestick and the spray can. Slowly but surely I “will” learn this and be good at it!! *laughs* ah well….
This month I have Art Fundamentals 2 … so you’ll get to see my lame attempts at drawing humanoids… I’m weeping over here just a bit, as the thought terrifies me. Give me some confidence k?
I used the picture to inspire some writing…. enjoy ❤
Today I thought about all the things on my desk,
the teapot you bought for me from somewhere out west.
There’s that stolen fork from the dive where we happened to meet.
Your friends thought it was funny, that you bought a stranger a treat.
Even the can of red spray paint is sitting on there.
Remember we used it to draw that heart at the faire.
I have that candlestick holder there as well.
It’s flawed just a little, but it makes my heart swell.
To remember the candle that was in it that day.
That united us together in such a special way.
So random the things I have on this desk.
But they remind me of us, so I like them the best.
Till next time…. ~em
