Street Update

SO i'm nearly finished on modelling this street, it was taking a lot long than I thought I went with a lazy idea of copy and pasting most of the building but in a different order to show varity.

I'm happy with how it looks, I'm not bothered about the uv's for the moment because most of them wont be used. The ones that will be used will be sorted out first.

To save time I will model the subway station entrance in this scene so I can used to building around it.

The next steps for me is to add accessories like lamps, mail boxes, etc... Apply the shaders, Render it all and then create matte paintings to extend the background.

Soooo... Many. UVs!!!..... I mean YAY UVS!!!!!

This has taken a lot longer than first anticipated, however this was the most detailed room and all the props inside the room will be used to flesh out the other sets, e.g the General's office.

Update on the Science Room - Wall Colour

Science Room update

Almost there with the modelling, just a couple of things left to flesh out the place. I'm really liking this! The room is very busy and well arranged. My only issue at the moment is, does is look like a scientist's room or an office? Maybe I will look for some objects to add to bring it back and make it look more scientific. However if this gets the greenlight then.... woop :D

Science Room - Improvements and Developments

I felt the large window wasn't working so I cut it down to two small versions either side of a wall and I think it looks a lot better. Curtains will be added in time. I have added a couple of lamps and frames to flesh out the decor.

Science Room

For the lab room I looked at the science room in "The Deadly Mantis".

So its just a Lab in a terrace like house and thats what I have kept in mind whilst doing it.

Just to catch up on the week, I have taken control of the environment modelling and started with the Empire State Building.

And then added style to it.

General's Office - A lot of work needed

And finally the mainframe for the Science lab.

Maya Tutorials

I have been trying not to fixate too much on the following the tutorial second by second. Instead I am modelling the character from memory of the classes and put my own twists on problems I come across and if I get stuck, I will refer back to the videos. Anyways this is what I got.
